My cilantro is growing like crazy so I HAD to make something really quick. I don't know how much quicker you can get than this. Great side dish for any summer meal. There are so many other fabulous cilantro rice dishes, some add lime, some add chiles. I just needed something quick so this is very simple!
3 1/2 cups packed cilantro leaves (about 3 ounces)
3 medium garlic cloves
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup minced yellow onion
2 cups long-grain white rice (or brown rice)
1 tablespoon kosher salt
Combine two cups of rice with chicken broth and chopped garlic cloves and yellow onion. Bring to boil and turn to simmer for about 30 minutes or until liquid is absorbed completely. Fluff rice when done and add chopped cilantro and a dash of kosher salt. Mix well. Rice will begin to take on flavor of cilantro while it's still hot.
I had my cilantro rice with organic turkey ham and yes, that is mayonnaise on the side. I love dipping my ham in mayonnaise. Is that strange? My, look at all that ham on my plate. I must have been really hungry, lol!
Hope you are all having a wonderful holiday weekend. I also hope you were all able to take a moment to thank all our brave soldiers who made a huge sacrifice for all of us and the freedom that we have today. xoxo
