A little fish

One of the many dishes my mom is known for is her spanish style rice- so I took her recipe and with a couple changes came up with clean spanish rice. I paired this with Tilapia and black beans, or you can do a taco!

- 1.5C brown rice
- 1 can no salt added tomato sauce (you can puree your own at home if you want)
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- Garlic and Onion Powder (I don't measure, just an even sprinkling of both) 

1. Place rice, onion, olive oil and seasoning in frying pan on medium heat. Stir until rice begins to brown and onion looks clear. 

2. Add 1 1/4 C of water and the can of tomato sauce (be careful, I get popped every once and a while!) 
3. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer and cover. It should take about 20 minutes for all the water to cook off. 
Finished product!
I put my fish on a bed of romaine lettuce, with tomato, a little rice, and black beans. B turned his into a taco/burrito (pictured above).
For tilapia- Spray pan and add a tiny bit of coconut oil to top of fish.
Pepper to taste, then bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.

If you're a sauce person (like me) add some Tapatio to a
little non-fat greek yogurt. It's awesome!

  2. Thank you so much. I grabbed some tilapia this morning and then discovered I wasn't quite sure what to do with the fish, was on sale. Look forward to trying your recipe, sure looks good.

  3. Hi little B...can you help me?? I need help, lol! So I tried this tonight and it didn't work at all! Mooshy rice, I have a feeling I bought the right kind. What kind do you use?? Thanks...

  4. I think the brand is Mahatma brown rice... did you let the liquid cook off completely?

  5. well i just tried sauteeing right out of the box and yes it sat for a while. I think i should have boiled first clue!

  6. Was the rice that was used pre cooked? Or dry from the box?
