This rice has to be the cheapest, tastiest thing that I make. I spent about $2 making this dish. I suggest buying rice (and anything else that you can) in bulk – it’s a lot cheaper and less wasteful of packaging.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup medium grain rice
  • 1 can tomato sauce (8 oz)
  • 1/4 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Method

Step 1

Heat vegetable oil in a medium sized pan. Fry the uncooked rice until it's golden.

Step 2

Add onion and garlic and let cook until onions become translucent.

Step 3

Add tomato sauce and two cups of water, then stir with about a tsp of both salt and pepper.

Step 4

Bring water to a boil, cover the pan with a lid and bring down heat to a low temperature. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes at low heat.
