Chipotle Lime Cilantro Rice



1 cup long grain rice

1 lime

2 cups water

1/2 cup freshly chopped cilantro

2 tsp vegetable oil


In a small pot add rice, water, and 1 tsp of the oil. Boil on high until most of the water has been absorbed. Once the water skims the top of the rice reduce the heat to a simmer and cover for around 15 minutes. In a container add 1/2 tsp of oil, half of the lime’s juice and half of the cilantro. After the rice has finished cooking pour the rice into the container and then add the renaming ingredients into the container along with some salt. Put the top on the still steaming rice and shake vigorously. I like to leave the rice in the covered container for around 5 minutes to ensure that the rice absorbs as much of the flavor as it can.

The best part about the recipe is 1/2 a cup is only a little over 100 calories!

Note: I use a lot less vegetable oil than other recipes call for because when I did use 3tsp I felt the rice was way too greasy.
