Cilantro Rice

IMG_1784

This reminds me of the rice you can get at Chipotle! Next time, I am going to make it with healthy brown rice!

  • 1 cup organic white basmati rice
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon organic extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • Freshly ground pepper

In a small saucepan, rinse rice 2 to 3 times. Add water, oil, garlic, salt and lime juice. Stir well. Uncovered, bring rice to a boil over medium heat. Stir well. Cover rice and simmer for about 20 minutes until water is gone.

Transfer to a medium bowl and fluff rice. Add cilantro and freshly ground pepper. Mix well and serve. Makes 4 servings.
