Cilantro Lime Rice

I mentioned before how much I love the lemon parsley rice.  Well, I love it even more now, because it's just. so. versatile!  I made enchiladas with the homemade red sauce and thought, how about switching out the flavors in the rice for a Mexican flavored dish?

It works.  And it's good. 

Cilantro Lime Rice

1 cup uncooked brown basmati rice
2 1/4 cup chicken stock

Juice and zest of one lime
1/4 cup (loosely packed) cilantro, finely chopped

In a medium saucepan, bring chicken stock to a boil.  Stir in rice and bring back to a boil.  Immediately turn down heat to a low simmer and cover saucepan.  Simmer for 45 minutes to one hour, or until all the moisture is absorbed.  Fluff rice with a fork and stir in juice and zest of one lime and chopped cilantro.   Serve along with enchiladas (white or red) or any other Mexican inspired dish.

That looks like a neat way to cook brown rice, I'm sure it tastes delish with the chicken stock, lime and cillantro!

This recipe includes some of my favorite flavors! Your rice looks delicious and would be wonderful paired with a variety of dishes. Thanks for sharing the recipe with the Hearth and Soul Hop.

BTW, Alex is no longer hosting the Hearth and Soul Hop. Some time when you get a chance would you mind changing the link to one of the current hosts?

I'm always looking for new rice recipes and we are huge cilantro fans (I think I use it in every other recipe I make).

I have a cilantro lime rice recipe on my blog too, but it's different from your recipe. The flavor combo IS pretty tasty :), Miriam@Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters

I just pinned something similar to this on Pinterest not long ago, and I can't wait to try it. Do you think quick cooking rice would work?
