How to Make Cilantro Lime Rice

Making this cilantro lime rice recipe couldn’t be simpler. Beyond cooking the rice, there are only a few extra steps:

  1. Start by cooking your rice on the stove or in a rice cooker (stovetop instructions are listed in the recipe below). Long-grain white jasmine or basmati rice are my top choices, but you could also use short grain white or brown rice if that’s what you have in your pantry. Just be sure to use an appropriate water:rice ratio for whatever variety you choose.
  2. When the rice is finished cooking, mix it with minced garlic, scallions, and lime zest while it’s hot.
  3. Allow it to cool slightly, and then add olive oil, sea salt, lime juice, cilantro, and jalapeño or red pepper flakes if you like your rice spicy.
  4. Serve it as a side dish or use it as a component in your favorite burrito bowl!

Cilantro Lime Rice Serving Suggestions

With its fresh, bright flavor, this green rice goes especially well with Asian and Mexican-inspired dishes. Serve it as a simple side dish with tacos or a protein of your choice or try stuffing it into peppers like these mini peppers or these poblanos! It would also be a great base for any of these bowl recipes:

  • Mango Black Bean Ginger Rice Bowl
  • Burrito Bowl with Cauliflower Rice (use this recipe instead of cauliflower rice, or use half cauliflower rice and half regular rice)
  • Loaded Portobello Burrito Bowl
  • Or make your own bowl with the rice, mango salsa, guacamole, black beans, your favorite veggies, and chipotle sauce or salsa for drizzling!
  • Make a falafel bowl with scoops of hummus and drizzles of green tahini sauce.
