Hi, I'm Parker 👋
Instead of buying me a coffee, check out the best coffee I've ever had (And it's instant!)

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the olive oil.
When the oil is hot, add in the rinsed rice and sauté for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the rice begins to brown very slightly. At this point, some grains of rice may even pop. That's okay. This step adds some nuttiness and more depth of flavor to the rice.
Add in the diced tomatoes, onions and minced garlic. Sauté for about 30 seconds.
Add in the water, tomato paste and a generous pinch of salt. Stir together to mix until the tomato paste has fully dissolved.
Bring the rice to a boil, lower the heat to simmer and cover. Let cook for 20 minutes, or until all the water has evaporated from the skillet and the rice is fully cooked through.
