Quick & Easy Cilantro-Lime Rice-1

Essentials Needed For This Cilantro-Lime Rice Recipe:

  • Long grain white rice – make sure to rinse it first so the finished product isn’t so sticky. You could also use brown rice in this recipe.
  • Hot water – just ensures a faster boil.
  • Himalayan Pink Salt – I use a good pinch but adjust to your liking.
  • Fresh lime juice – for the absolute best flavor, only use fresh juice in this recipe.
  • Cilantro – use only fresh cilantro, because dried will give this an entirely different flavor.
