Spanish brown rice

A great, healthier alternative to regular spanish rice and went great with our chicken chile verde dinner! I found this recipe on the Healthy Cooking site.

ENJOY and be healthy!

1 cup uncooked brown rice
1 1/2 cups cold water 
olive oil
1/2 cup onion
1 clove garlic
1 T olive oil
2 8 oz cans tomato sauce -I used Muir Glen Organic
1 tsp salt

Bring water to boiling. Add rice and cook covered 15 minutes. Do not lift lid. Turn off heat and cook 15 more minutes. Never lift lid. The rice cooks by steam.
In a skillet saute onion and garlic in olive oil until tender. Add tomato sauce, salt and cooked rice. Simmer 10 minutes to combine flavors.
