Cilantro Lime Brown Rice – Virtual


1 1/4 cup Water
1/2 cup Brown rice
1/4 cup Coriander (cilantro) leaves, raw (chopped)
1 Tbsp Lime juice, raw
1/8 tsp. Salt


Gather all ingredients and equipment.

Place rice in a mesh colander and rinse under cold water.

Put the rice and water medium sauce pot, on medium-high heat, and stir.

Bring the liquid to a boil.

Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and cover the rice.

Simmer the rice for 30 minutes and taste the rice to see if it is still crunchy. If so, check for water on the bottom of the pot; add ¼ cup of water if all the water has been absorbed and continue to cook. If it is cooked and the water is absorbed, turn off the heat.

While the rice is cooking, prepare the remaining ingredients.

Finely chop the cilantro leaves. Juice the lime. Set to the side.

When the rice is a good consistency, turn off the heat and keep it covered for 10 minutes.

Fluff the rice with a fork.

Add the cilanto, lime juice, and salt and enjoy!
