- 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
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!
