“This is a twist on a Spanish-favorite. Use seitan, tofu, or tempeh to add a protein element. I substituted turmeric for the traditional saffron to cut costs.”

  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

Directions

  1. Mix boiling water and rice together in a bowl; let stand for 20 minutes. Drain.
