Directions

With a very small amount of Olive Oil, Sautee together the Optional Ingredients: Celery, Green & Red Bell Pepper, Onion and Garlic – Do Not Over-Sautee; Set to the side {in bowl}. {use only an amount of oil to sautee that will be absorbed into the vegetables – otherwise you risk making your end result will contain to much oil] In the same pan that you sautéed the Optional Ingredients – {in a pan with an approx 3” depth} Place the 2 to 3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil in the Pan Add 1 ½ Cups Comment Long-Grain Rice [and stir the rice into the oil] With the heat at Medium, brown the rice in an un-covered sautee pan {pan/approx 3” deep} When the Rice has browned, if you are using the Sauteed Optional Ingredients, Add them to the browned Rice; THEN/OR BEGIN TO ADD TO THE BROWNED RICE {if not using the optional ingredients} 3 ½ Cups Water/or Chicken Broth [be careful, in adding the first liquid to the hot mixture with oil} ½ Medium/Coursely Chopped Raw Onion; Chopped Fresh Tomato *Green Bell Pepper* {Raw, if did not sautee it with the Optional Ingredients} ½ Can Tomato Sauce Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder {if used fresh garlic and the optional vegetables, you may not need to add any garlic power at this point} Cover the pan and cook on medium heat {approx: 30 to 45 Minutes; Do Not Overcook} Check often GENTLY STIR THE INGREDIENTS – FROM THIS POINT TRY TO NOT STIR THE INGREDIENTS --- BUT YOU MAY NEED TO ADD SOME ADDITIONAL WATER/STOCK. STIRING, OR YOUR OVER-STIRING WILL CAUSE THE RICE TO BECOME MORE LIKE POTATOES VERSUS RICE!!! *KEEP A CLOSE EYE ON THE MIXTURE TO NOT OVER-COOK—WHEN DONE, REMOVE FROM HEAT & UN-COVER - AND PLACE IN SERVING BOWL; IF MAKING AHEAD OF TIME; COOL COMPLETELY BEFORE SEALING FOR STORAGE; TO RE-HEAT; USE THE MICROWAVE.
