Cilantro Lime Rice

Cilantro Lime Rice

Servings: 4   Size: 3/4 cup  Points Plus: 5

1 cup Basmati Rice
Juice of 1/2 lime
2 cups water
1 tsp Salt
3 T chopped fresh cilantro
4 tsp vegetable oil, divided

In a pot, bring water to boil.  Add rice, 1 tsp oil, and salt.  Boil on high until most of the water is absorbed - when the water level is at the top of the rice, reduce to low and cover.  Cook for an additional 12-15 minutes.  Turn off heat and leave covered for about 5 minutes.  In the meantime, combine chopped cilantro, lime juice, and remaining oil in a large bowl.  Add the rice and stir until completely mixed.  Serve immediately and enjoy!

  2. Welcome Stephanie! The Cilantro Lime Rice is one of my favorites. I also like to make it using Jasmine Rice when I don't have Basmati in the house. It is such a nice side dish with sweet-spicy meat like the Barbacoa Beef or the Asian Glazed Drumsticks.
