Whats for Lunch...


Well I am addicted to the cilentro rice at Chipolte and so I search for a recipe on line and found one,,and todayI was craving it so I made it up and boy is it ever good,,,I had Jasmine rice on hand so I used that and roasted garlic and it taste so good..here it the recipe if you want to try it out..


Cilantro lime Rice Recipe serves 4
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 cup basmati rice
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
zest from one lime
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 tsp. salt
Directions:
Add the oil to a sauce pan and heat on low. Add the garlic and rice to the oil and saute for 2 minutes on medium heat stirring frequently.
Add the chicken broth, salt, lime juice and bring to a boil. Cover and cook on low for 15 minutes or according to rice package directions.
When the rice is done, add lime zest and chopped cilantro and stir to mix in. Serve immediately.
If you are using regular long grain rice, follow the cooking directions on the box regarding the amount of liquid to use and the cooking time.
This rice would go great with our chile verde recipe. Check it out.
