Garlic Cilantro Brown Rice

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of water
  • 6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tsps of salt
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon  olive oil or other oil
  • zest of 1/2 a lime juice from 2-4 limes
  • 1 bunch of cilantro 
  • 4 green onions

Instructions:

Bring water to a boil with garlic, salt, bay leaves, oil, and lime zest.

When water starts boiling, add the rice, stir it and close with the lid.

Start a timer for 45 minutes.

Halfway through cooking, water will have mostly evaporated, open lid, and give the rice a quick stir and close back up until cooking is complete.

Once the timer goes off, add the remainder of ingredients; lime juice, green onions, and cilantro.

Mix all ingredients in and enjoy!
