I love cilantro and rice, so this is a match made in heaven.

I used 1 cup of rice and adjusted the remaining ingredients. I suggest you may want to be careful with the salt as I used 1/2 tsp. and a little too much with the saltiness of the chicken stock. I used cilantro which had been in fridge for a couple of weeks and I think it had lost some of its flavor. I'm not rating as I think this would have been much better with fresh cilantro.

  1. Combine the cilantro and stock in a blender and mix to a smooth puree. Heat the oil in a large heavy saucepan. Add the onion and cook voer medium heat for two minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon. Add the garlic and cook until the onion is soft but not brown, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes more. Add the rice and cook until the grains are shiny and aromatic. Add the cilantro stock mixture and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook until the rice is tender, 20 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat. Remove the lid, drape with a dish cloth over the rice and replace the lid. Let the rice stand for 5 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Fluff the rice with a fork and serve.
