This is a quirky way to make a tasty rice dish.
I saw it on YT this weekend and needed to try it. I only have a small rice cooker not such a fancy one. It worked a charm. I will try it again some time soon.
A small bag of my frozen tomato sauce made it even better.
Fresh tomatoes cooked until the get mushy, some seasoning and olive oil that is all it takes. I pimped my rice with some Italian herbs, some fresh basil, boiled eggs and the next day with some leftover cooked ham.
This is a great midweek meal.
recipe for 2:
1 1/2 cups of short grain rice
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt and pepper
1 tsp Italian herbs
2 small or one bigger tomato
150 g tomato sauce
Wash the rice and measure out the proper amount of water.
Add oil, salt, pepper, herbs.
Cut out the green stem of the tomatoes and set them with the stem side down onto the rice.
Close the lid and start the cooking process.
Boil some eggs and defrost the tomato sauce.
When the rice is done use the wide plastic rice spoon and crush the tomatoes into the rice.
Bring everything together and enjoy.
It is great as an office lunch the next day.
