(Servings 4)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Lenten Season and a Happy Easter! I know I’ve been MIA for quite a while now but I just came back from a long vacation home to visit family. You know how that goes; lots of activities, fun and of course food!

For those of you who know me, you know I am a rice lover! I just need my carbs. This recipe is a fast and easy way to give rice a new twist without having to do much work. Just throw everything into the rice cooker and press start! As I’ve probably already mentioned before, I enjoy lime and lemon flavors a tad bit more intense than most so I’ve decreased the amount used in this recipe. However, feel free to give your rice an extra dose of lime juice if you’re like me. This Cilantro-Lime Rice was a perfect side to my Honey-Lime-Mustard Slow Cooker Pork, another fast an easy recipe for a busy day.

2/3 cup Basmati Rice

1. Rinse until the water runs clear.

1 cup chicken stock

2. Add the rice to the cooker along with all the seasoning and start the cooker.

3. Once the rice is cooked, fluff with a rice paddle.

1 tbsp lime juice

1 tbsp butter

1/2 tsp salt

2 tbsps cilantro, chopped

4. Mix the cilantro into the rice and serve hot.
