    2.5 cups of white rice
    1.75 cups of Petite Diced Tomato (1 can)

    1 Tbsp Onion Powder
    4 cups Vegetable broth

    *salt and pepper to taste

Directions

-Add onion powder and chili powder, salt and pepper to taste
-Stir well. Bring to simmer and then cover and let sit 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

**I always keep the last cup in reserve, as it's easier to add liquid as it cooks than end up with soggy rice!**
