Cilantro Lime Rice
Food Group: Grain
|1.5 cup(s) long-grain rice|
|2 cup(s) water|
|1.5 teaspoon(s) kosher salt|
|1 cup(s) fresh cilantro, loosely packed|
|1/2 cup(s) white onion, chopped|
|1/4 cup(s) scallion, chopped|
|1.5 tablespoon(s) fresh jalapenos, including seeds, chopped|
|1.5 tablespoon(s) fresh lime juice|
|1 teaspoon(s) olive oil|
|2 clove(s) garlic|
Bring rice, water and 1 teaspoon salt to a boil in a 1.5-2 qt. heavy saucepan, then reduce heat to low and cover pan with a tight fitting lid. Cook 20 mins. (Or cook your rice according to the package instructions - I always use Jasmine!)
While rice is cooking, preheat the oven to 375 and chop the cilantro, garlic, scallion, onion, jalapeno.
When rice is done, mix the rice w/ a 1/2 teaspoon of salt, the lime juice and all items chopped above. Spread the rice out on a cookie sheet and sprinkle w/ olive oil. Bake until a little crispy - approx 10-15 mins.
