I have so many recipes of cilantro lime rice pinned to my Pinterest boards for months now! In this version of cilantro lime rice, I’m actually using a Martha Stewart recipe.
I love the idea of cilantro lime flavored rice…cilantro and lime taste so good together!
There’s also garlic in this recipe! I love garlic so I always end up adding a few extra cloves to every recipe I use!
All the flavors in this recipe is totally spot on! But what I didn’t really love about this recipe was that the rice was a bit too mushy for my liking. Next time I make this, I cook the rice the way I normally do. So I would toast the rice in some butter and garlic and then add the water and let the water absorb the rice.
Cilantro lime rice goes very well with cheese enchiladas! :)
Have you tried making cilantro lime rice before? If so, let me know what your favorite recipe is! Hope you’re having a beautiful day!
Cilantro Lime Rice (via Martha Stewart)
- 1 cup long-grain white rice
- 1 1/2 cups water
- Coarse salt
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 garlic clove
- In a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil. Add rice and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cover, and reduce to a simmer. Cook until water is absorbed and rice is just tender, 16 to 18 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a blender, combine cilantro, lime juice, oil, garlic, and 2 tablespoons water; blend until smooth. Stir into cooked rice, and fluff with a fork.
