Delicious RICE Using Pantry Staples | EASY & Affordable Recipe
In this post, I´m going to show you how to make a Delicious RICE Using Pantry Staples. This dish is not only easy & affordable, but packed with a ton flavors and very healthy for you. Serve it as a main course or even as a side dish, next to some grilled fish.
To make this dish I used Spanish round rice, which is the one that´s typically used to make paella. A common staple in every Spanish kitchen. However, you can use whatever rice you have on hand. Just make sure to check the package instructions, as the rice to liquid ratios might be different.
What really flavors this dish is the sweet smoked Spanish paprika and the thyme. Feel free to add any other type of spices or herbs that you like. If you want to add a little heat into this rice dish, just add in a small pinch of chili powder or even hot smoked paprika.
TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: You can serve this dish warm, at room temperature or even chilled. It will hold in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to 3 to 4 days.

Delicious RICE Using Pantry Staples
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 30 ml
- 1 small onion
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1/2 tsp sweet smoked Spanish paprika 1.25 grams
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme .50 grams
- 2 tomatoes
- 3 cups vegetable broth 720 ml
- 1 cup Spanish round rice 190 grams
- 10 oz canned or jarred white beans 295 grams
- 1/3 cup frozen peas 55 grams
- 4 eggs
- handful fresh parsley
- pinch sea salt
- dash black pepper
Heat a large fry pan with a medium heat and add in the olive oil
In the meantime, finely chop the onion and roughly chop the garlic
Add the chopped onion and garlic into the hot pan, mix continuously, after 3 to 4 minutes and the onion is translucent, add in the paprika and thyme, quickly mix together, then add in the tomatoes finely grated and season with sea salt & black pepper, mix together and then simmer without mixing
Once the grated tomato has slightly thickened, about 3 to 4 minutes, add in the vegetable broth and turn it up to a high heat, when it comes to a boil add in the rice and the canned white beans (drained & rinsed), give it one final mix so everything is well mixed, then simmer without mixing
After 9 to 10 minutes and most of the broth has been absorbed but there´s still plenty of broth left, lower it to a low-medium heat, then add in the frozen peas and the eggs, I like to create little pockets in the rice for each egg, season the eggs with sea salt & black pepper, then place a lid on the pan and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes or until the rice is cooked and the egg whites are set, then remove from the heat
Serve directly out of the pan or transfer into serving dishes, sprinkled with chopped fresh parsley, enjoy!
