I discovered this Spanish rice recipe while I was travelling in Spain. Honestly, all I need is this Spanish rice and nothing else, it is that good! Rice is one of those gluten-free grains that you can flavour with just about anything, and make it extra flavourful!


Spanish rice


In this Spanish rice dish I used fresh nutrient packed veggies such as bell peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic and red onions. Then I added spices such as cumin and chili pepper and plenty of fresh parsley. The best part is, by using fresh veggies you are eating a healthier more nutritious meal.





  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ½ cup GF long grain rice, soak in water for 20 minutes, then drain
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 red or yellow bell pepper, cut to small pieces
  • 1 cup diced mushrooms
  • 1 tsp. GF ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. GF chili powder
  • 2 1/4 cups GF vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley
