- 1 Cup white rice
- 2 Cups chicken stock (or vegetable stock)
- 1/2 Cup cilantro
- 1 lime
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/2 Teaspoon salt
- Splash of water
Heat up a dollop of oil in a saucepan on medium-high heat.
Saute 1 cup of rice in the saucepan until lightly browned.
Add 2 cups of stock and 1/2 teaspoon salt to the rice.
Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a light simmer.
Let simmer until the liquid is absorbed.
Turn off heat and cover, letting rice sit in its own steam for a few minutes.
Rinse 1/2 bunch of cilantro and twist off the bottom stems, chopping roughly.
Add to a blender along with 2 tablespoons lime juice and 1 garlic clove.
Add a couple of tablespoons of water (or oil) and blend the ingredients together.
Add the lime-cilantro mixture to the cooked rice and mix thoroughly.
Taste for salt. Add additional cilantro if desired.
