This delicious rice gives a great depth of flavor to burritos, taco bowls or Beef Barbacoa (see recipe). Use brown rice to add nutritional value. Serves 6.
1 cup brown jasmine rice
½ teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped
2 tablespoons organic butter
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
Rinse rice several times in cold water until water runs clear (this prevents mushiness). Drain well.
Transfer rice to rice cooker (preferred method) or to a medium pot.
Add salt and water to package instructions (most likely 1 ½ cups).
If cooking in a pot on stove, cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
Reduce heat to low and cook, covered, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 18-21 minutes.
Remove from heat. Let stand, covered and undisturbed for 10 minutes.
Using a fork, fluff rice and then gently fold in cilantro, butter and lime juice.
