Greek Style Oven Rice

Greek Style Oven Rice

This simple, vegetarian, family-style rice dish is loved by all – even little ones. The amount of olive oil called for might be surprising, however it is completely absorbed and in turn, makes the rice silky-smooth.

Ingredients

  • 3 medium onions, chopped
  • ¾ cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp Greek oregano
  • 1 Tbsp Greek smoked chiles
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 2 cups steamed OR arborio rice
  • 4 medium tomatoes
  • 1 cup feta or kefalograviera, grated
  • Dill to garnish

Method

  1. 1

    Heat the oven to 350 °F.

  2. 2

    Place an oven-proof pan in the oven on medium heat.

  3. 3

    Pour oil and add onions to the pan. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally until translucent and lightly golden.

  4. 4

    Incorporate oregano, smoked chiles, salt, garlic and tomato paste. Mix well until the oil becomes red. Add rice and mix well for another minute to stain the rice, then pour 4 cups of water into the pan.

  5. 5

    Cut tomatoes in four and place on the rice.

  6. 6

    Bring to a boil then put in the oven without a cover. Cook for 30 minutes.

  7. 7

    Turn off the oven, leave the door slightly open, allowing the dish to rest for another 20 minutes.

  8. 8

    Garnish with dill or any other herb you prefer. Serve accompanied with feta or kefalograviera.
