I am always looking for easy recipes…so easy they hardly even qualify as an official "recipe". This is one of the best that even non-cooks can master on the first time.
It has three main ingredients – each is one of my favorites. I could literally eat several servings of this rice without an entrée, but if you are looking for something to pair it with, it is great with my 2 Minute Chicken.
Following the directions of the rice that you use, measure out the water needed for rice cooking.
Wash and cut the stems off of fresh cilantro. I use the same amount of cilantro as I do rice in a recipe.
If you are cooking 1 cup of rice, then use 1 cup of cilantro.
Add the water and cilantro into a blender.
On high speed, blend until you have a lovely green cilantro liquid.
Measure the rice.
Add the cilantro liquid and rice to a pan. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and cover. Cook for 15 minutes and then let stand 5 minutes.
Squeeze fresh lime juice over the cilantro rice.
