The recipe Tomato Rice I show you in this post. A basmati rice with vegetables is usually a light and delicious side dish and becomes the main thing on your plate here.
Especially in summer such a rice with vegetables and tomatoes tastes especially delicious. You probably know the rice from your last visit to the Greek restaurant. A similar rice is often served as a side dish with roasted or grilled meat.
I would like to tempt you here to cook a fine, noble rice dish with tomatoes, crispy basil, basil pesto, a balsamic vinegar reduction and caramelized tomatoes.
The preparation of the rice plus supplements goes quickly by hand and will give you pleasure at the stove. I wish you good luck and a good appetite!

2. Prepare Tomato Rice at a Glance
You can prepare a fine Italian rice with chunky tomatoes and vegetables in a pot:
- Fry spring onions in butter with uncooked Basmati rice until translucent.
- Add a can of chunky tomatoes.
- Add vegetable broth to the rice and season to taste.
- Cook the rice without lid until firm to the bite over a low heat.
- The liquid evaporates almost completely, resulting in a creamy rice.
- Fry the courgettes diced in the pan and after cooking add to the rice or arrange separately.
- Fry the basil leaves in oil in the pan and place on top of the rice.
- Garnish with fresh herbs.
I will describe the preparation step by step below. This rice tastes good as a side dish with fish and meat…
3. Supplements to Rice with Tomatoes
Rice with tomatoes as a complete dish… in the introduction I promised you an exciting dish. Here are my tips for rice as a vegetarian main course:
3.1 Basil Pesto
For my fine pesto with basil I used these ingredients:
- fresh basil
- pine nuts
- parmesan cheese
- olive oil
- salt, pepper
Here you need a pan for roasting the pine nuts, a grater for the parmesan and a blender.
3.2 Balsamico Glace
The fine Balsamico glace is a reduction of balsamic vinegar. I boil the balsamic vinegar in a small pot and season with pepper.
3.3 Caramelized Tomatoes
For the caramelized tomatoes you need small vine tomatoes, which I marinate with a little sugar, salt, pepper and olive oil.
Then stew them in a flat oven dish at 220°C and caramelise them.
The tomatoes from the oven are served hot as a garnish on the rice.
