Cilantro Lime Rice

Yum

This rice is a direct result of our love for Chipotle. We eat there quite frequently and have recently discovered that they send coupons via text, which is super convenient. Even though we love Chipotle for a quick, easy, and vegan-friendly dinner out, sometimes it is just as easy and satisfying to make you own similar meal and stay in.

Cilantro Lime Rice


Ingredients:

2 cups rice (brown or white) cooked according to directions (This is 2 cups dry, makes about 6 cups cooked)

1-2 tbsp olive oil
1/4-1/2 tsp salt
1-2 tbsp lime (juice from 1 fresh lime)
1/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves, minced

Directions:

Make the rice. Then mix in the olive oil, salt, and lime juice. Mince the cilantro and toss that in as well. Start with the smaller amounts listed, and then add more to suit your taste.

For 6 servings. Nutritional information from caloriecount.about.com.
