Author's Notes

Swap the traditional chicken bouillon cube for vegetable stock. This drops the sodium levels to a minimal. Make sure to use your own vegetable stock or a no salt added veggie stock.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Pour the Avocado Oil (1/2 Tbsp) into a medium pot and add the Long Grain White Rice (1 cup) . Stir to coat evenly and turn on stove heat to medium. Toast until white rice is a light yellow almost brown shade – about 5 minutes. Make sure to stir often to avoid burning.
Step 2
While toasting the rice, make the tomato broth. Add the Roma Tomatoes (2) , White Onion (1/4) , Low-Sodium Vegetable Stock (2 cups) , and Garlic Salt (1 tsp) into the blender. Blend until smooth – about 25 seconds.
Step 3
When the rice is lightly toasted, pour the tomato broth into the pot of rice. Bring to a boil.
Step 4
Once at a boil, add the lid and bring it down to a simmer. Stir every 5-7 minutes, making sure to return the lid once stirred. Simmer for about 30 minutes, until the tomato broth is soaked entirely into the rice.
Step 5
After the rice is fully cooked, remove it from the heat and let sit for 5 minutes with the lid still on.
Step 6
Serve with Lime Wedges (1) and Fresh Cilantro (1 bunch) while warm.
