Standard

DSCN1264

I made this rice a couple of years ago and for some reason totally forgot about it.  I made it today to eat with jerk shrimp and roasted asparagus.  Scott liked it so much that he said he wanted to have the entire meal every week. So I won’t be forgetting about it again!

Cilantro Lime Rice

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup basmati rice*
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • zest from one lime
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • Directions

    Add the oil to a sauce pan and heat on low. Add the garlic and rice to the oil and saute for 2 minutes on medium heat stirring frequently.

    Add the chicken broth, salt, lime juice and bring to a boil. Cover and cook on low for 15 minutes or according to rice package directions.

    When the rice is done, add lime zest and chopped cilantro and stir to mix in. Serve immediately.

    *If you are using regular long grain rice, follow the cooking directions on the box regarding the amount of liquid to use and the cooking time.
