My Favorite Rice Recipe
from Patricia - Fairfax, Virginia, USA

Must cook the rice first.
I found this recipe on a magazine but I added my imagination.

  • 2 cups cooked rice (I'll show you how!)
  • 1 can of red kidney beans (not the ones that are sweet)
  • 3 spoons of thyme
  • 3 spoons of oregano
  • one minced onion
  • one minced tomatoe
  • 2 minced pieces of garlic
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • black pepper
How to cook the rice:
Add four spoons of olive oil, 2 cups of rice, salt, 2 cups of water, one big piece of garlic and wait until the rice is cooked.

In the meantime add 2 spoons of olive oil to a saucepan and wait until it is hot.
after that, add the onion and the garlic and wait until they smell very good and become a little transaparent (the onion).
add the tomatoe and the beans, stir, cover, and wait for one boil. add the thyme, oregano, salt and pepper as you like.

In other recipient, put the rice and all what you've cooked in the saucepan and mix it.
