I have been growing roma tomatoes, scallions, and peppers in my garden. I needed a good way to use them. In my house, we eat very unhealthy. I am on a quest to attempt to change our life style. Looking at my three ingredients, I immediately thought of rice! Then I thought no way, that is way too hard! But then I went for it!
- roma tomatoes
- onion powder
- cooked rice
- Serrano peppers
- garlic powder
- ground pepper
I started with my scallions. Since I am growing the,m, I just cut off what I needed. The white part of the scallion is what has the most flavor, but I have 2 younger girls that are not onion fans. I cut them to heat in the oil. I used my oregano infused oil because I am obsessed with it!
After I cut up my scallions, I cut up my Serrano peppers. I included a picture because I am so proud of them! I allowed them to heat up together to infuse the spices together. I added the garlic and onion powder for taste.
Next I added the cooked rice. On medium heat, I allowed the flavors to mix together. Since I am staying away from unhealthy food, I left out the salt. I did add ground pepper. Then I diced up my Roma tomatoes. Yes, these are also from my garden!
I loved the smells coming from the rice. Now, you could add chicken or beans to the rice. It was starting to look and smell so good!
I scooped it up and put a drop of salsa on the top. We were ready for a more natural side dish. White rice is not the best choice, but I am trying to move into the correct direction. Next time I will attempt whole wheat rice. Both of my daughters loved it! My husband wanted more spice to it, but you can’t win them all.
