Red Rice

I'm a tomato-holic.

And what really gets me hungry is sun-dried tomatoes.
man, i can already taste them in my mouth.

So when i came upon a recipe for Red Rice from 400 Calories Or Less, I knew I had to try it.
Such flavour.
Such smokiness.

Just make it already, will you?

I'm loving the little oregano leaves you can see there.
Hmmmm, another thing i love: Oregano.

Oh, and the best part?
Only 209 calories per serve.

Red Rice
(adapted from 400 calories or less)

1 tablespoon oil

1 large shallot, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 cup white rice
1 ¾ cups chicken or beef broth

½ teaspoon oregano flakes

Coarse salt to taste


Heat oil and cook garlic and shallot until shallot begins to brown, about 7 minutes.
Then add tomato paste and stir well.
Add rice, broth, oregano, salt and pepper and bring to a boil them reduce heat to low, cover and cook until liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
Let sit covered 5 minutes. Serve warm
(serves 4)

i took the easy way out and popped the rice along with the stock into the rice cooker after it boiled. Turned out might fine, so if you have a rice cooker, it would be much easier to use.
