Cilantro Lime Rice

Prep Time 10 Minutes Cook Time 20 Minutes

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.

What you'll need

  • Rice
  • Salt
  • Water
  • Fresh Cilantro
  • Fresh Limes

How to make it

  1. Step 1

    Following the directions of the rice that you use, measure out the water needed for rice cooking.

  2. Step 2

    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.

  3. Step 3

    Add the water and cilantro into a blender.

  4. Step 4

    On high speed, blend until you have a lovely green cilantro liquid.

  5. Step 5

    Measure the rice.

  6. Step 6

    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.

  7. Step 7

    Squeeze fresh lime juice over the cilantro rice.
