Cilantro Lime Rice

A good companion to any Mexican dish, we often serve this with black beans of some sort or with Vegetarian Tortillas. Simple, easy, and delicious!


1 cup Long- Grain White Rice
1/4 tsp course Salt (regular is fine if you don't have course)
1/2-2/3 cup FRESH chopped Cilantro
2-3 Tbsp fresh squeezed Lime Juice (not using fresh will not taste as good)
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Garlic clove minced
Salt to taste
1/2-1 cup Pine Nuts (optional)


In medium Saucepan bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil. add Rice and Salt. Cover and reduce to a simmer, cooking until water is absorbed and rice is just tender (16-18 minutes).

Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Serve and Enjoy!
