Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 2
  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • ¾ cup cilantro (leaves and tender stalks)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • pinch of kosher salt
  1. Add the rice to a small pot and add 1½ cups water to the pot. Bring to a boil then cover and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 12-15 minutes or until the water has all absorbed.
  2. Remove from heat and fluff rice.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to a blender and blitz until everything is in small pieces. You may need to scoop the ingredients around a couple of times when doing this because there's not a large quantity of stuff in the blender. You could also finely chop the ingredients by hand if you like.
  4. Stir into rice and serve.
