This is a one pot rice recipe that you can customize to your heart’s desire, the only exception is that you must always start with a few basic ingredients. This recipe works, it’s really delicious and a time saver. You basically throw everything in the rice cooker, or pot if you cook rice in pot, and your meal is ready when your rice is cooked. I have tried this recipe three times now and each time with a different slant of ingredients and it always comes out beautifully. It’s sort of like a stone soup, if you’ve heard of that story. Except it’s with a tomato. Except it’s tasty even with just a tomato.
When I decided to give this recipe a try, I was tired and hungry after work, there wasn’t much groceries left in the fridge and I didn’t have the energy to get groceries or cook P and I proper dinner. Desperation leads to openness in trying new things I guess, so I eyed that lovely organic red tomato sitting on my kitchen island. Boy am I glad I gave this recipe a whirl.
My only regret? Not taking more pictures.
Optional but delicious additions – this is what I added for this recipe:
Note: You can pretty much add anything you want but I would stay away from greens or vegetables that will turn brown if not cooked quickly. Otherwise, all is fair game.
Trust me on this, guys.
This recipe can be completely vegetarian/vegan or it can be a carnivore’s dream – it’s up to you, but always start with a ripe red tomato.
