On a Budget: Greek Tomato Rice

This rice dish is so tasty that I am craving it while typing this post. We made it twice, once for dinner and last week for the bento. This is a dish that tastes good, warm or on room temperature. While for lunch this is for sure more expensive than just making a sandwich, it is a good budget option for your evening meal. The recipe I got from Flair at Home, but I adapted it to vegetarian.

Greek Tomato Rice: (serves 2, or 4 for lunch)
- 150 gr rice
- half a leek, in small pieces
- 330 ml tomato frito
- 250 ml vegetable broth
- 1 spring onion, in rings
- 2 bell peppers, in cubes
- feta
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp parsley
- pinch of pepper
- pinch of garlic powder

Heat some olive oil in a pan and bake the leek, spring onion and bell pepper for 3-4 minutes. Add rice, broth and frito, mix well. Let this simmer for about 20 minutes until the moist is vaporized. Stir occasionally. Add the spices about half way. Crumble some feta and stir through the dish before serving.
