As rice goes, there is nothing tastier than cilantro rice. It adds a beautiful flavor to otherwise plain rice, and is also a good use of Brewers Organics produce! This recipe calls for use of the entire bunch of cilantro, stems and all! You only have to remove the leaves from a small handful of the cilantro to save as a topping for the rice and tacos.
1 tbsp olive oil
1 large bunch of fresh cilantro
2 cups white rice
3 3/4 cups water
In a medium size pot, olive oil on high. Add rice and stir, coating rice entirely. Cook until rice becomes opaque, just a few minutes, then reduce heat to medium.
Add water and all but 1 handful cilantro (stems included) to blender. Set the other small handful aside. Blend thoroughly. In pot, turn heat back up to high and add blended cilantro water to rice ~ 4 cups. Bring to a boil and then cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until done, about 20 minutes. Remove cover and fluff with a fork.
Remove stems from remaining handful of cilantro and use leaves to garnish rice and tacos. Enjoy!
