Spanish Rice

Total time: 30 minutes
     This is a late summer dish - when everyone is trying to use up the last of the tomatoes. The grated, fresh tomato adds more of the scent of tomato than a heavy flavor, making healthy, brown rice a bit more interesting.
Use quick cooking if you can get it. Mine cooks in about 15 minutes. You could substitute Basmati.

Spanish Rice Ingredients:


Note:  to grate tomato:  cup half of a tomato in your hand and rub it on the big holes of a box (or other style) grater until all that is left in your hand is the skin.  You'll have to press a bit, but not too hard. Be careful not to grate your hand.
