Clean Eat Recipe :: Restaurant-Style Mexican Brown Rice and GIVEAWAY!

We haven't had a giveaway in a while, so we are very excited to have partnered with the ever so yummy, Planet Rice, to bring you one of my favorite brown rice recipes and a chance for you to win sprouted rice from Planet Rice to try yourself.

Let's talk about Planet Rice first... they are owned and distributed by LaGrande Family Foods, a local, family operated farm system to the Sacramento Valley of California, who has been cultivating their crop since 1924.  Planet Rice is a bit different - it's sprouted rice which means it's chock full of nutrients, cooks faster (think only 30 minutes!), and tastes AMAZING! Planet Rice also contains GABA, gamma amino butyric acid, an amino acid found in fresh foods like peaches and green snap peas. In people, GABA acts as a neurotransmitter that may lower anxiety, increases the sleep cycle for a deeper sleep, lowers blood pressure and increases additional cardiovascular functions.

On to the recipe...

Restaurant-Style Mexican Brown Rice

2 cups Planet Rice Brown Rice
1 medium yellow onion, peeled
1 clove of garlic, peeled
1 14-oz can organic tomatoes
1 cup organic, low sodium chicken broth
1 cup water

1. Place yellow onion, garlic and tomatoes in a blender and puree.
2. Over medium-high heat, bring tomato puree, chicken broth and water to a boil.
3. Add rice, stir and cook on low with lid on pot for 40 minutes or until most liquid has evaporated.
4. Remove from heat, stir and enjoy!
