Cilantro Lime Rice

Original Recipe from Skinny Taste

  • 1 cup extra long grain rice or basmati rice (I use white basmati rice from Trader Joes)
  • juice of 1/2 lime (I use 3-4 teaspoons)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
  • 2 + 3 tsp vegetable oil 
Heat 2 tsp. oil in a small heavy pot and saute rice for about 3 minutes.  Add water and salt and boil on high until most of the water evaporates.  When the water just skims the top of the rice, reduce to low and cover about 15 minutes.  Shut off flame and keep covered an additional 5 minutes.

 In a medium bowl, combine chopped cilantro, lime juice, rice and remaining 3 tsp oil and toss until completely mixed.  I added additional salt to this mixture.
