Arroz de Tomate (Tomato Rice)


– 300g of rice
– 1 onion
– 2 garlic cloves
– olive oil
– 3 peeled, diced tomatoes
– 1 laurel leaf
– salt
– pepper
1- Put the chopped onion and garlics in pan with the olive oil, in medium heat. Add the tomatoes and the laurel leaf.
2- Then add the rice and stir. Add water, 2 times the volume of the rice (use a cup to measure). When it starts to boil, immediately lower the heat to minimum. Add the salt and pepper, cover the pan and let it cook for 20 min.
3- Serve with good portuguese wine (I prefer green or white with the rice). Bom apetite
