1 tablespoon corn kernels
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
Cooking Instructions

3. Add the rice and stir to coat evenly with butter. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes.

4. Add the stock, tomatoes and corn and bring to a boil over high heat.

5. As soon as the stock comes to a boil, cover the pot and place in the oven for 18 minutes.

6. Add the salt, pepper, and fluff with a fork.
