1 Cilantro Rice (2)

1 cup uncooked long grain rice

2 cups water

3/4  tsp. salt

2 T. fresh lime juice

3/4 cup cilantro, stems removed, chopped

Mix water, rice and salt in a medium sauce pan.  Bring to a boil.

Cover and turn down to low and simmer for 18 minutes.

After 18 minutes, remove from heat and keep it covered for 5 minutes.

Remove lid and fluff rice.

Stir in cilantro and lime.  The heat of the rice will wilt the cilantro.

WEIGHT WATCHERS:  1/2 cup serving – 2.5 PointsPlus

If you have any rice left over – make Fried Rice with it. Delicious!!!!

1 Cilantro Rice

I scrambled an egg – removed it from the pan.  Then I added a little Sesame oil and fried the carrots, green onions and mushrooms. I then added the rice and egg with a little soy sauce.  Tastes great and also very colorful.
