Cilantro Rice
Better than Chipotle Cilantro Rice! And, better for you.
  • Rice
  • 1 c parboiled rice
  • 1⅓ c water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Cilantro Slurry
  • 1 c chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 tsp salt
  1. Place rice, water and 1 tsp salt into a saucepan turn heat up to high.
  2. Once rice is boiling, cover, turn the heat down to low and let simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Remove rice from heat, give it a quick stir, cover again and let sit for 5 minutes.
  4. While the rice is resting, place cilantro, lime juice, water and salt into a food processor or mini blender and blend into a slurry.
  5. If you need to add more water, add a another tablespoon at a time (you can also add more lime, instead, if you like things really lime-y, like me!)
  6. Add the cilantro slurry to the rice and mix well.
  7. Taste, adjust seasonings, and add more lime if you'd like!
  8. Top with more chopped cilantro.
