Saturday, August 20, 2011 Cilantro Lime Rice like Cafe Rio Rice

Lemon Cilantro Rice

I was out of lime, so I just used lemon and it was delicious!


1 c. uncooked rice (long-grain, white rice)
1 tsp. butter or margarine
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
1 can (15 oz) chicken broth
1 cup water
1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tsp. sugar
3 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro

In a saucepan combine rice, butter, garlic, 1 tsp. lime, 
chicken broth and water. Bring to a boil. Cover and 
cook on low 15-20 minutes, until rice is tender. 
Remove from heat. In a small bowl combine lime juice, 
sugar and cilantro. Pour over hot cooked rice and
 mix in as you fluff the rice.
