  1. Pour rice into a deep pot and stir in enough oil so that every grain is coated.
  2. Cook rice on medium and constantly stir, using a spatula, until it becomes a light toasted color (20-25 min), be careful not to burn.
  3. Add onion and green pepper, cook until they become soft, add more oil if needed.
  4. Stir in tomato, cook for 2-3 minute.
  5. Tilt pot, remove any excess oil w/ spoon.
  6. Sprinkle bouillon and garlic salt over rice (DO NOT STIR).
  7. Pour water over rice (DO NOT STIR), then cover.
  8. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and cook for 25-30 min, or until most liquid evaporated (DO NOT LIFT LID DURING THIS TIME).
  9. Pick out large pieces of veggies w/ a fork and discard, (this step may be omitted if you chopped your veggies, I have picky eaters).
  10. *This rice actually tastes better when cooled, and then heated in the microwave, as any remaining liquid is evaporated.
