Description

A fresh and bright side dish for both Mexican and Asian cuisine. So easy, quick and delicious you’ll make it much more often going forward

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Basmati Or Other Long Grain White Rice
  • ¼ cups Onion, Chopped
  • 1 clove Garlic (large), Diced
  • 1-¾ cup Water (2 Cups If Using Long Grain Rice)
  • 1 cup Chopped Cilantro
  • 1  Lime, Juiced
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • Salt

Preparation

In a large pot, sauté the onion and garlic in the olive oil over medium heat just until fragrant.
Add the rice and stir to distribute.

Add the water and salt to taste. Raise heat to medium-high until the water is actively boiling. Cover the pot with a lid and reduce the heat to low or medium-low, just enough to maintain a gentle simmer.
Refer to the notes for cooking times, depending of variety of rice used.

Remove from heat when all moisture has been absorbed and rice is cooked but can be easily fluffed with a fork. Fluff the rice to loosen the grains. Add the chopped cilantro and drizzle the lime juice in circular motions to distribute throughout the pot. Toss everything until the flavors are evenly distributed. Taste for seasoning and adjust salt and lime juice as needed.

Serve warm.

Note: If using basmati rice, cooking time after placing the lid should be about 15 minutes. Regular long grained rice takes about 20 minutes.
