My love for Lime Cilantro Rice runs deep. I make it nearly every week because we eat a lot of fresh Mex over here and because its just THAT good. You can make this on your stovetop in a normal saucepan, or you can use a Rice Cooker. I've burnt more than 1 batch of rice by forgetting to turn down the heat, so I almost exclusively use my rice cooker. It produces perfectly cooked rice every. single. time. We received our rice cooker as a wedding present and it's been handy ever since.
Lime Cilantro Rice
2 C Rice
2 TB Butter
1 lime, juiced or 4 tsp lime juice
2 tsp salt
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
4 C Water
Using your rice cooker, place 2 cups of rice into the cooker. Then turn on the cooker. The cooker will not turn on until there is an adequate amount of weight in it, but the rice should be enough. Then add the 2 TB butter and saute 3 minutes. Add lime and salt, saute an additional 1-2 minutes. Add water, place lid on cooker until cooking is complete. Transfer to serving bowl, then stir in chopped cilantro.
I like to pair this rice with our favorite tacos or taquitos. If you try it, be sure to tag me @amygregory so I can see. Enjoy!
