Marinated Rice

Okay - this rice dish is so good I could eat it plain, all by itself, with nothing else to accompany it. It's supposed to go with Cuban Black Bean Soup, and I did indeed serve the rice with the soup, but the rice is a great stand-alone dish as it is. I've never really cared for rice too much, but I really like it prepared this way. The original recipe for the rice can be found here.

1 cup long-grain brown rice
2 cups water
1 tsp. olive oil
pinch salt
1 1/2 medium ripe tomatoes, diced
4 large scallions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
1 tsp. olive oil
3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar

Bring water, olive oil and pinch of salt to a boil. Add the rice. Cover and simmer 45 minutes or until all the water has been absorbed. Remove from heat and let sit 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork and cool to room temperature.

Combine the diced tomatoes, scallions, olive oil and vinegar. Pour over the rice and toss well. Serve at room temperature. This is a good accompaniment to Cuban Black Bean Soup.

Making this tonight and serving with marinated orange roughy.

Kids unlikely will eat the rice, but that's okay. Me and hubby love brown rice. I like recipes like this where I have everything I need right there. :) I'll let you know what we think.

I hope you like it! My kids won't eat rice either...they'll come around someday. :)
