Green Coriander Rice

"A tasty side for simple grilled chicken or meat. Being gluten-free I tend to eat a lot of rice and this makes for a great change. I love the peppery flavour of coriander. Use a gluten-free stock to make this recipe suitable to a gluten-free diet (I like to use Massell brand )"

Ready In:




  • Place the capsicum, onion, garlic, coriander and parsley in a food processor. Blend to a fine paste. If you dont have a processor- chop ingredients as finely as possible or use a mortar and pestle. Set aside.
  • In a saucepan, heat the butter and oil. Add the rice and fry gently for 2 to 3 minutes- until the grains become translucent.
  • Quickly stir the herb paste into the rice. Continue to cook over heat for another 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Pour in the boiling stock and season with pepper. Bring to the boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook 10- 15 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the stock has been absorbed. Watch closely after the 10 minute mark and add some extra water if more liquid is required.
  • Remove from the heat and leave to stand , with the lid covered for a few minutes.
  • Fluff the rice with a fork to seperate the grains and serve garnished with chopped coriander leaves or sprigs.

    Made this for dinner tonight. The rice had a very nice flavor and went well with the chicken I fixed in the crock pot. It is so would go wonderful with a Mexican meal as well as with beef, chicken, or pork. I will definitely be making this recipe again soon. Thanks for posting Jubes. Made and reviewed for the 49th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.

    This was very tasty and super simple to make. I added a green chilli to the paste as I had one lonely one sitting in the vegie crisper.

    Very nice flavor, I served this with roasted chicken and the family enjoyed. Made for Aussie/NZ RS#32.

    Ooh, we loved this, and very easy to prepare. I really liked the idea of making the herb paste, I thought that was clever, and the flavours are fresh and fragrant. I would have liked to use macadamia nut oil, but didn't have, so stuck with the olive oil. Another time. And I used the vegetarian stock. i would serve this with any dish, and in the event, served it with Galley Wenchs Recipe #319470, which gave us a superb supper. Thank you Jubes!

    A very tasty way to "fancy up" rice. Went great with my grilled chicken. Flavors were great and it added some color to the plate.
