(wait for it)
Sauteing the rice in the lime juice before adding the water. Ingenious!
Cilantro Lime Rice
- 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
- 2 medium limes, juiced
- 1 & 1/3 c. water
- 1½ c. basmati rice
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped (we increased this to closer to ¼ c., so plan to do this to taste)
*The cilantro can wilt/discolor in leftover rice, so if you are planning on having some leftover, I would suggest adding the cilantro to just the portion that you plan to use immediately.
