How to Make Greek Leeks and Rice:

Stir in the rice and lower the heat to medium-low. Saute the rice and the vegetables together for about two minutes, making sure not to burn it. Stir in the tomatoes, water, salt and pepper and cover the saucepan. Cover the pan and set the eat to medium so that the water can boil.
