Leamington Tomato rice


  • 1 1/2 cups / 375 mL Dainty Risotto rice
  • 4 medium Plum Tomatoes, chopped rough
  • 2 cups / 500 mL Vegetable or Chicken Stock
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 small Onion, diced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • Chopped Cilantro



Place the rice in a rice cooker with the diced tomatoes and stock. Cook.


Meanwhile, heat up a sauté pan over medium high heat. Add the olive oil. When hot, add the onion and garlic. Sauté for 5 minutes or until soft.


When the rice is finished cooking, fold in the sautéed onion, garlic and chopped cilantro. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.


Note: If you find the rice slightly wet, it's ok, it's supposed to be like that. Great served with Lake St.Clair perch, or any fish, even sautéed shrimp!
