Over the weekend I wanted to make my spanish rice recipe but didn’t have a main dish to serve it along side. So I decided to make it a little more hearty and eat it as the main dish! I really like how it turned out — flavorful and filling! Plus it’s a little cheaper of a main dish as it is meatless.
