Cilantro Lime Rice

 

This rice is very very tasty and so super simple to make. Neither the lime nor the cilantro is overbearing and you can adjust them to your taste.

As you can see I served it with Barbacoa beef and corn salsa.  It was good on the side or in the tacos!

Cilantro Lime Rice

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup extra long grain rice or basmati rice
  • 1/2 lime, juice of
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
  • 3 tsp vegetable oil

Instructions:

  1. In a small heavy pot, add rice, water, 1 tsp oil and salt. Boil on high until most of the water evaporates. When the water just skims the top of the rice, reduce to low and cover about 15 minutes. Shut off flame and keep covered an additional 5 minute.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine chopped cilantro, lime juice, rice and remaining oil and toss until completely mixed.
