A perfect accompaniment to any Mexican dish!
- Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the rice and stir continually until the rice has turned golden brown, around 7-8 minutes.
- Add the water, tomatoes, onion, garlic, veggie cube, salt, cumin and chilli to a blender and blitz until well blended (it’s ok if there are still small bits left in the mixture).
- Once the rice is golden, carefully add the mixture to the pan. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to a low simmer. Cover and allow to cook until the water has been absorbed and the rice is soft and fluffy, around 15-20 minutes.
- Once the rice is cooked, remove from the heat, add the lime juice and fluff with a fork. Adjust seasoning to taste. Enjoy as a side dish to tacos or on its own with some avocado and salsa.
