this recipe of portuguese tomato rice is dedicated to a few of my portuguese friends. simple and easy to make and still delicious. goes well with mung bean sprouts salad or vegetable salad.
very similar to the spanish rice recipe, except for the method of cooking… which i will post soon. its a little on the bland side as besides black pepper no other spices are added. to give a little spice and heat you can add red chili flakes or red chili powder.
make sure to make the recipe with olive oil only and not any other oil. what olive oil contributes, no other oil can contribute to this recipe.
i have made this recipe both with sunflower oil and olive oil. but the flavor and taste is remarkably different with olive oil. sunflower oil makes it too bland both taste wise and flavor wise. so make sure to use a good quality olive oil.
if you do not have olive oil and plan to use sunflower oil, then add some red chili flakes or red chili powder to spice up the tomato rice.
