Easy Baked Rice with Roasted Tomatoes and Garlic

This baked rice dish tastes so incredible. The slow roasted tomatoes, garlic and shallots become so tender that they melt into the rice giving it great flavor and texture.

Combine tomatoes, garlic, shallots, thyme, cardamom,  and cinnamon sticks in  baking dish. Add the olive oil,  salt and pepper. Toss to coat. 

Roast for 1 hour, until the vegetables are tender. 

Do not stir. Scatter the rice  evenly over the undisturbed vegetables, then carefully  pour the broth over the rice.

Cover the dish tightly with foil.  Bake for 25 minutes. Remove  from the oven and let stand,  covered, for 10 minutes. Stir  in the parsley and serve.
