I looked up a few recipes and took the ingredients from 3 to get what we had last night. By the time I was done blending everything to stir into the rice, I tasted it and was a bit worried; but once it was stirred into the rice it was really good. This isn’t an exact recipe, and you really can’t ruin it. It was SO good. My 2 year old, who eats dinner about once a week, devoured hers, and everyone went back for seconds.
I cooked just over 1 cup of dry rice in chicken broth with a bit of salt and about half of a (small) finely chopped onion thrown into the dry rice and broth mix.
While that was doing its thing I blended over a cup of cilantro, about 2 t of minced garlic, 2 green onions (green and white) chopped, a bit of lemon juice (2 teaspoons-ish), and some olive oil – maybe 2 T. I had to add a small bit of water just to make everything blend together really well.
When the rice is done, stir the green mixture into the rice and serve hot. Delish.
Next time I think I’ll add a seeded, chopped jalapeno to the green mixture.
