Arroz Graneado - Spanish Rice Recipe

Most Spanish rice is laced with tomatoes. This is the recipe which most families use in Spain. Serves four.

2 T. oil
1 clove garlic
1 cup long-grain rice
2 cups water
1 t. lemon juice
Salt to taste

V.S.P. Brown whole clove of garlic in oil, add rice and sauté until golden. Add the boiling water, lemon juice and salt to taste. Boil 5 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15 minutes longer. Rice should be dry with loose grains. If you like, add diced tomatoes just before serving. Serve with roast or chops.
