"Thanks to a strong vegetable bouillon cube infusion, this recipe makes the house smell almost like it has chicken in it, but is, of course, vegetarian.
Meat eaters think I have fallen off the wagon when they smell this and start looking for the chicken bouillon box. If the dish is too runny at 45 minutes, uncover and continue to simmer."
Combine stewed tomatoes, water, brown rice, orange bell pepper, onion, oil, ancho chile powder, and vegetable bouillon in a saucepan over low heat. Cover and stir occasionally. Simmer until rice is cooked and liquid is mostly absorbed, about 45 minutes.
