This is a simple suggestion, and really, doesn't even require a recipe. I love to pass on quick suggestions for sprucing up an ordinary side dish, though! I served this rice, flavored with cilantro and lime juice, with seasoned black beans and chunky salsa last night for dinner.
To make this dish, all you need is a pot of freshly cooked rice, some chopped cilantro, and several lime wedges. I cooked my rice in the rice cooker, flipped open the top, and then squeezed in the juice of about 1/2 a lime and stirred in the cilantro. Season with salt, and you're ready to go!
I hope you'll give this a try--or even use it as inspiration for another flavor combination. Rice can be boring, but I was thrilled with how much FLAVOR this version gives.
