A spicy side dish to go with that Mexican meal (and a way to sneak in a couple more grams of fiber too)
1 cup brown rice
2 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup tomato puree
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper (or less to taste)
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Measure all ingredients into a covered microwaveable dish.
Microwave on high for five minutes, then on medium (50%) power for thirty minutes, or until most liquid is absorbed and the rice is the desired consistency.
Stir and serve.
