Low Sodium Rice
Most people think of rice as a dull dish, but they probably haven't tried this side. It's the perfect compliment to just about any dish -- from chicken to steak to fish.
At a glance
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup onion, chopped
3/4 cup rice
3/4 tsp. cumin
3/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup low sodium tomatoes, drained
Heat the vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, and cook until tender, stirring frequently. Stir in rice, and season with cumin and garlic powder. Cook and stir until the rice is lightly toasted, about 5 minutes. Pour in the chicken broth and the diced tomatoes. Bring to a boil, then cover and cook over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, until all of the liquid has been absorbed.
