The Cook & Kitchen Staff are taking you to four different corners of
the world to serve up a variety of regional holiday specialties. We're
currently offering you a taste of holiday treats from Brazil. Today's
recipe would also be served as a side dish with a traditional Turkey
feast in holiday homes throughout Brazil. One should note that Brazil
has not experienced a stable economy for many years. Because many
Brazilian families of modest means could not afford an extravagant
Christmas holiday, a law was passed in the early 1960s to help make
Christmas more affordable. The "13th salary," or Christmas bonus, pays
each Brazilian worker an additional month's salary in November and/or
December. This law attempts to ensure that Brazilians have the extra
money required to celebrate the holidays. Although today's recipe is
not required by law to be included, you will find it a frugal addition
to your holiday fare, should you elect to serve it with tomorrow's
featured recipe, the Christmas Turkey! In a heavy 3-quart saucepan
over medium heat, warm the olive oil for about a minute, tipping the
pan to coat the bottom evenly. Add the onion and sauté, stirring
constantly, for about 5 minutes or until the onion is soft and
transparent, but not yet brown. Pour in the rice and stir for about 3
minutes, until all the grains are coated with the oil. (Do not let the
rice brown.) Add the boiling chicken stock and water to the rice. Add
the tomatoes and salt, and return the mixture to the boil, making sure
to stir occasionally. Cover the saucepan and reduce the heat to a
simmer. Cook for 20 minutes or until the rice has absorbed all the
liquid. Serve warm. Posted to by
