Cafe Rio Cilantro Lime Rice

I love this rice.  I normally eat a bunch plain and put a bunch in my burrito!  This would be a great side for just about anything. (2-7-12 update – Baa! Isn’t this picture horrible! I’m in the process of updating) 
Cilantro Lime Rice
1 cup uncooked rice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 to 2 teaspoon lime zest ( I do at least 2 and sometimes a little more… I love zest)
1 cube chicken bullion
1 cup water
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
3 teaspoons granulated sugar
4 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro

Add rice, water, garlic, lime zest, and bullion to rice cooker.  Cook until it’s done… In a small bowl combine lime juice, sugar and cilantro.  Fluff your rice with a fork.  Pour lime juice mixture over hot cooked rice.

I don’t have the gift of cooking stove top rice.. . if you do, then make it on the stove top how you might normally make rice.  I always double this amount, but I also eat a lot more than most people 🙂
