Arroz and Gondules (red rice with pigeon peas)

Hi guys, this recipe is something that is made in my kitchen a lot.  We love Spanish food and it is easy to make.   Rice is always a good side dish and something even a main dish. this recipe is great for going along side of some Spanish fried pork chops which I have a video up on my channel.  That will be linked below.

I hope you give this a try and let me know what you think.



4 cups Goya medium grain rice

2 tbsp. oil

1 8 oz can tomato sauce

1 pk sazon

2 tsp. adobo

2 tsp. garlic powder

2 tsp. onion powder

3 tbsp. safrito

1 15oz can gondules (pigeon peas)



Add oil to pot and put heat on medium high heat. Let the oil heat up

Wash the rice until water runs clear or as clear as you can get it and set aside

Once oil is heated add the tomato sauce, sazon, adobo, garlic powder, onion powder, safrito and gondules then stir to combine and let simmer for about 3 to 4 minutes.

Add in the washed rice to pot and stir well.

Add in enough water to just cover the top of the rice.

Let this cook on medium high heat until the water has evaporated from the rice.

When water has evaporated, lower the heat down to low and cover with a lid. Stirring rice occasionally.

Let this cook for about 30 to 45 minutes or until rice is tender.

Serve with bean or just as is.
