This rice, with its fragrant hint of lime and cilantro, makes a fine side dish.
|1 T||olive oil|
|1 c||basmati rice|
|1 1⁄2 c||vegetable broth|
|3 clv||garlic (minced)|
|1||lime (zest and juice )|
|1⁄2 c||cilantro (chopped)|
Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and rice. Increase the heat to medium-low and saute for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add the broth, salt, and lime juice, and bring to a boil. As soon as the liquid boils, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the rice is tender.
Once the rice is done, fluff with a fork. Stir in the lime zest and cilantro. Serve immediately.
