Cilantro Lime Rice


I will forever have an obsession with Cilantro! I can never have enough of the fragrant and flavorful herb. Add it to some rice with fresh limes and how can you go wrong?

This would go great as a side dish on Taco night or ANY night. I served this as a side with some baked salmon and it was perfection. There are a lot of simple recipes out there for this dish and mine is super simple so give it a try and let me know what you think!


1 cup of Brown Jasmine Rice

2 cups of water

bunch of cilantro



1 tbsp of butter

1 medium lime

salsa and sour cream (optional)

Rinse rice and add to 2 cups of water, bring to boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to light simmer for 35 minutes or until done. Once rice is fluffy, still on low heat, add your butter, stir until melted and coating your rice. Add juice of lime and stir.

Add finely chopped cilantro and salt and pepper to taste and VOILA!

I like to add a spoonful of salsa and sour cream to mine but that is up to you. ENJOY and tag me if you try this recipe out and love it!
