Cilantro in Brown Rice
1 cup Brown Rice
2 cups Water
1 tablespoon Lime Juice
1 tablespoon Canola Oil
1/2 medium White Onion, diced
1 tablespoon Fresh Jalapeno, chopped fine
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Fresh Cilantro, chopped
In a medium saucepan, combine everything - except the chopped Fresh Cilantro. Simmer on low heat with a lid on, for approximately 50 minutes. When rice is done, stir in the Cilantro. Let sit, with the lid on, for 10 minutes. Toss the rice and enjoy.
*You can use long grain white rice in this recipe but cook it for 20 minutes.
*When you get to the final minutes of cooking rice, check to be sure there is still liquid in the saucepan. Add a tiny bit more if necessary.
*For a nice presentation, press rice into a small bowl. Turn it out onto a plate and top with salsa, and a little sour cream and chopped cilantro.
