Lime-Cilantro Rice

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Reefbubbles

This is a really good, simple side. I once accidentally mixed all the ingredients in the water, before cooking the rice and it was great too. I added more fresh cilantro after. This is a must to be served with my AWESOME, IMPRESS my friends dinner combination. Serve with Tequila-Orange Grilled Shrimp and Avocado Salad posted by me. The more the juices of each dish mixes with one another the better it tastes! This is a Martha Stewart recipe.

We love the flavors of lime and cilantro so this was any easy choice. It is excellent rice and very easy to do. Will make this again. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup.
