1 tomato (about 8 oz.)
1/2 medium white onion

Wash rice and then soak rice in water for about 10 minutes. Drain while preparing other ingredients.

Chop up tomato, onion and garlic. Whirl in blender with oregano until smooth.

Let cook about 5 minutes until rice has absorbed most of tomato. Stir in broth and bring to boil. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let set 15 to 20 minutes.
