We like to eat this rice when we are having a "tropical" meal. This recipe comes from "Burt Wolf's Menu Cookbook". I usually just put all the ingredients in my rice cooker and just add a little extra water but it can be cooked on the stove as described below.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes. Remove garlic clove before serving.

Very good rice - I love the addition of lime. I made this with Recipe #222225 and Recipe #362340 for ZWT5 Jammin Java Jivers. Thanks!

This rice was really nice! I made this in my rice cooker and I doubled the recipe, following the liquid:rice ratio for my rice cooker instead just to make sure it would work. I didn't use lime zest and substituted garlic powder for the fresh garlic since my garlic press was in the dishwasher at the time ;) I served with beef chimichangas, homemade salsa and guacamole... yum! DH loved it too (but he put ketchup on it! ha ha, strange, I know!). Made for ZWT5.

Excellent flavor just as written! I served it with fish and it was a perfect combination. Made for ZWT5.
