Cilantro-Lime Rice


  • 2 c uncooked rice
  • 3 ¼ c water or chicken stock
  • 1 small lime
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro


Cook the rice in the water or stock however you normally do. For this recipe I like the rice a little drier, so the amount of liquid is less than what you're probably used to using.

When the rice is almost done, zest the lime (see notes below), and then cut and juice it too. You want a couple good tablespoons of juice.

Pull the leaves off of the cilantro stems and then mince the leaves until you have three or four tablespoons worth.

Put the rice into a bowl and fluff it, then sprinkle the lime juice, lime zest and cilantro. Toss until it's well combined.


Cooking time: 20 minutes
