This is the recipe my costarricence husband cooks for me. Es muy rico!
- 2 -4 sprigs fresh cilantro, coriander leaf, not dried
- 1⁄2 medium onion
- 1⁄2 small sweet red pepper (optional)
- 3 cups chicken broth or 3 cups water
- 2 cups white rice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Add 1 Tablespoon oil to a large pan and sauté the dry rice for 2 minutes over medium high flame then add the chopped onion, sweet pepper and cilantro and sauté another 2 minutes. Add water or chicken broth, bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to simmer until rice is tender (20-35 minutes). This is also the recipe for Tico rice used in favorites like tamales and Gallo Pinto.
