Number of Servings: 12


    Rice, Kraft Minute Whole Grain Brown Rice, 1.5 cup
    Pacific Natural Foods Organic Vegetable Broth, 1 cup, 2.5 serving
    Hunt's Tomato Sauce, no salt added, 1 cup
    Onions, raw, .25 medium (2-1/2" dia)
    Olive Oil, 2 tbsp
    Parsley, dried, 4 tbsp


In a medium sauce pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add in the onion. Saute for 1-2 minutes until softened. Add in dry rice. Stir for about 5 minutes until rice becomes a golden brown color.
Add in broth and tomato sauce (Slowly into rice, not directly onto hot pan!) Add in the parsley if you're using it. Stir it up and bring to a boil. Once it starts boiling, turn the heat to low and cover. Let it simmer for 20 minutes and fluff with a fork.

*If you don't have fresh garlic or onions on hand you can use the equivalent in powder form. Do not saute the powder, just skip that step and add the garlic powder and/or onion powder when you add the liquids. If you don't have tomato sauce you can use unseasoned stewed tomatoes, or canned diced tomatoes with their liquid.
