Cilantro Lime Rice

I just got my Everyday Food issue for April and there are some great recipes! To keep the Mexican food theme going, I’ll be sharing a recipe for cilantro lime rice. I know not everyone is a fan of cilantro (referred as coriander)… either love it or hate it. I happen to love cilantro all the way from the smell to the, OH so yummy taste!

By the way I was named a Maven for 2008 on ThisNext (the link is on the side of the blog).I am number one at the moment in kosher food. Holla! Make sure to check my list. If you have any suggestions for my list or things you want me to review drop me a line at

Nosh on,

Cilantro-Lime Rice

1 cup of long grain white rice
Kosher salt
½ cup of fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons of lime juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 garlic clove

In a medium saucepan, bring 1 ½ cups water to a boil. Add rice and a ¼ teaspoon of salt; cover, and reduce to a simmer. Cook until water is absorbed and rice is tender, 16 to 18 minutes.

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. Now eat, drink, and be merry!
