Why I Love This Recipe

Even if you’re not crazy over vegetables, this is a great way to get a serving or two in your system. As always, remember to adjust the quantities to accommodate the size of your family.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 cups white parboiled rice
½ cup cooking oil
6 oz tomato paste/ tomato sauce
14 oz can kernel corn (with liquid)
14 oz can sweet peas & carrots (with liquid)
3 – 4 cups water
salt (to taste)
½ tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder


Place a medium/large hard-bottom pot on medium heat and add oil.

Stir in tomato paste/sauce followed by peas, carrots and corn.

Add water, salt and other seasonings.

Bring to a boil, and then add the rice.

Reduce heat (medium-low) and cover pot.

Allow to cook for about 20 minutes, be sure to test the rice to ensure that it’s cooked through.

Tip: one great way to get my rice to cook all the way through without adding more water is to “trap” the heat in the pot. You do this by placing a piece of plastic or foil over the rice and placing the lid back on, reduce the heat to a very low setting and allow it to “soak” for a few minutes. Watch your pot and don’t let your rice burn.
