Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the scallion whites and garlic and cook, stirring often, until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the rice and cook, stirring often, until the grains are opaque, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the broth, tomato sauce, chili powder, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook, covered, until the rice is tender, 25 to 30 minutes.
  2. Remove the rice from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and fold in the scallion greens before serving.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
