Cilantro rice

My wife made this last night. Addictive.

Cook rice as usual, with 1 tsp. salt per cup of rice.

For each cup of rice:

2/3 cup cilantro, loosely packed
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped scalions
1 jalapeno (or to taste)
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp olive oil

Puree the above in a blender, add to the cooked rice, stir well.

  1. I do a variation on this that calls for the rice to be mixed with toasted coconut and/or coconut milk. Yum.

          1. Robert,

            I tried your recipe last night and came out fantastic. Didn't have Jalapeno on hand so just used some dried chilli flakes. Ate it with simple grilled ribeye.

            Thanks for the recipe.
