Amazing Spanish Rice

Submitted by:
I got this receipe from my husband's cousin, who was born and raised in Mexico. This is the most delicious Spanish rice I have ever eaten, so I'm listing it here for others to enjoy.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4-8


1 cup long grain white rice

1/4 yellow or white onion (cut up into thick slices)

1/4 green pepper (cut up into slices)

Handful of cilantro

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tsp. of "Consomate" (Knorr-brand vegetable bouillon powder)

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper

1/4 tsp. ground cumin

2 cups water


Heat oil over medium heat, then add uncooked rice and stir until it turns a little bit white. Then, add the onion and keep stirring until it turns a little darker (don't let it turn too brown). At this point, add garlic, cumin, pepper, and consomate to 3/4 cup water, and pour on rice. Cover for about 30 seconds, then add the remaining 1 1/4 cups water and stir.

When the water begins to boil, add the green pepper slices and cilantro. Then, lower heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes.
