This is not a food blog, but . . .
My daughter just made some fabulous rice that I want to share with you. The recipe only, that is. The rice itself will be long gone before anyone has time to make it over to my house 😀
Here are the ingredients you need.
- 1.5 cups of basmati rice
- 3 cups of water
- One teaspoon of minced garlic
- One bunch cilantro, chopped
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- Salt, to taste
First of all, be sure to use basmati rice. It has a unique, nutty flavor, and you won’t get the same result if you use a different kind of rice.
Sauté the garlic in the olive oil in a medium saucepan. Add the rice, stir around in the oil (medium heat) for maybe five minutes. Add the water and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover, and cook for about 10-15 minutes until rice is fluffy. Keep heat low so rice does not burn. Stir now and then. When it looks like all the water is absorbed, stir in the lime juice. (You can add more lime juice if you prefer a more pronounced lime flavor.) Salt to taste. Stir in the cilantro immediately before serving.
That’s it! And OMG, it is delicious.
