Coconut Lime Cilantro Rice

coconutlimerice1

I've been making this rice for some time. It's super simple, yet packed full of flavor which in our house is a winner. I use this as side for most any meal. It pairs well with tacos, adds a punch to a chicken dish and is a show stopper in a rice bowl. I love making rice bowls for dinner. Everyone gets a bit of what they like and I feel good serving a dish packed full of veggies.

This isn't a dish that one waxes on about for thousands and thousands of words but it is a dish that will quickly become a staple in your meal rotation. One can always leave out the cilantro if they find it soapy tasting but just know I feel sad for you because cilantro is one of the best herbs around.
