A lovely rice side dish that takes literally minutes to put together. Let it bake and then serve with a Mexican meal.


Serves: 5 

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 brown onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon hot chilli powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin powder
  • 1 cup uncooked white rice
  • 1 3/4 cups (440ml) chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Heat the oil in a large frypan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook and stir until onion is translucent. Stir in the chilli powder and cumin, and cook for about 30 seconds. Add the rice, chicken stock and tomato paste and bring to a boil. Transfer to a 1 litre casserole dish and cover with aluminum foil or a lid.
  3. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender. Let rest for 3 to 5 minutes before serving.
