bohoEATS…Healthy inspired Spanish rice…It's ALL GOOD Gwyneth Paltrow

I have been so IN LOVE with Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook, It's All Good i have literally made almost everything in it!  bohoSarah told me about the blog, For the Love Of and she talks about how Gwyneth made her do it & shares her trials of cooking from the cookbook!  You can follow her on Instagram.

  Here is one of my favs: Spanish Rice-I use Skinny Rice.  i LOVE the red/green colors- Recipe from It's All Good by Gwyneth Paltrow

1 14-ounce can of whole peeled Organic BPA Free can Tomatoes
1/2 organic yellow onion, peeled and roughly chopped
2 organic garlic cloves, peeled
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse sea salt
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil-sometimes i only use 1 1/2 tablespoons
1 cup organic long grain brown rice
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1/2 c organic frozen peas
2 tablespoons of cilantro, roughly chopped

Combine the tomatoes with the onion, garlic & salt in a blender and puree until smooth.  Add enough water so you have 2 1/2 cups of liquid and set it aside.

Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick heavy saucepan over high heat.  Add rice and cook until rice turns opaque and smells nutty, about 3 minutes.  Stir in Tomato Paste, so the paste really gets into the rice.  Add the reserved tomato mixture and bring whole thing to a boil.  Lower the heat, cover the pot, and simmer until rice is cooked all the way through, about 45 minutes.  Take the pot off the heat, uncover it, throw peas on the top, cover again and let the rice sit for 10 minutes.  Remove the lid and stir in cilantro.  ENJOY!
