Rice can be the basis of almost any meal, so making rice that you will enjoy is pretty important. Plain old rice is good and all but it’s much more fun to spice things up a bit! (No pun intended) My cilantro and lime rice is super quick and easy, with only 3 ingredients, so that you can have something that gives more flavor and kick to your meal.
I got the inspiration from Chipotle of course, but I was in a hurry to finish cooking and thought to myself, whats the simplest was to make this rice without adding a bunch of ingredients or having to chop up everything.
Serving Size: 2 Prep Time: 5 mins Cook Time: 10 mins Total Time: 15 mins
1 cup brown rice
1 cup water
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1. Pour rice and water into a pot and let sit and cook on its own.
2. While rice is cooking chop up your cilantro and cut up your limes, once the rice is finished let it cool then remove from pot and place into medium sized bowl.
3. Finally mix in the cilantro and squeeze your limes and mix as well.
*Sometimes I add pepper for a little extra kick but usually I am adding to a meal filled with spices and flavors that I don’t want my rice over powering my main dish. Also I do not normally use the minute rice but to be honest is taste the same and is just as good for you without having to sit and wait 30 minutes for your rice to cook.
I hope you enjoy this rice just as much as I do! It’s quick and easy and super delicious!
