Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 cup of white rice, unwashed
2 Tbsp. Olive oil
2 cups of water
2 Roma tomatoes
1/4 white onion
1 clove garlic
1 bullion cube of Knorr's Caldo de Tomate
1 pinch of salt

Directions:
Directions:
On stovetop, heat up olive oil and add rice. Brown until the rice is golden in color, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

In a blender, add the tomatoes, onion, garlic, bullion, and salt. Add a tiny bit of water so that the ingredients blend easier.

Return the rice to heat and pour in the tomato mixture over the rice. Let the mixture come to a boil. Once it starts to boil, add 2 cups of water and stir rice. Cover rice with a lid and lower the temperature to a simmer.

Leave on simmer until rice is cooked. Check the rice's progress at 20 minutes. There may be a film of tomato paste on top of the rice after it's fully cooked - once stirred, this will disappear! If the rice is too soggy, take the lid off near the end of cooking to evaporate extra water.
