This evening I started rice in my rice cooker and about 10 minutes later realized what I really wanted was cilantro lime rice. I googled for inspiration and didn’t find a recipe that exactly fit my needs. My mother-in-law makes wonderful cilantro rice, but hers is stovetop and I was already past that point and I didn’t have all the ingredients. I decided to try my hand at makeshift rice. As suspected, I was able to just add the desired ingredients to the rice once it was cooked, so I didn’t have to mess with stovetop rice. Yay! If you don’t have a rice cooker, you could just do this on the stovetop.
2 c. uncooked brown rice
water (the amount your rice cooker says to use for 2 cups of rice)
2 T. non-dairy butter
juice of 1 lime
1 tsp salt
1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
Cook rice according to rice cooker directions. Once it is cooked, add the butter, lime, salt, and chopped cilantro. Stir well and serve as a side. Pairs well with my enchiladas.
