Cilantro Lime Rice. A simple way to make your rice slightly less boring. Well, and a total Chipotle rip-off.. It just makes sense with black beans, red beans, any beans. You could pair this with indian or thai food just as easily.

CILANTRO LIME RICE

1 cup long-grain white rice

Coarse salt

1/2 cup fresh cilantro

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 garlic clove

In a medium saucepan bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil on high heat. Add rice and 1/4 tsp salt. Cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until water is absorbed and rice is tender, about 16-18 minutes.

Meanwhile in a blender combine cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, garlic and 2tbsp water, blend until smooth. Stir into cooked rice and fluff with fork.
