Cilantro Rice
30 mins (prep 5, cooking 25)
11 ingredients
5-6 servings
'Top Shelf' according to my son. I originally found this on, but I guess that site is no longer available. So I wanted to post it on Zaar for safe keeping. I usually omit the carrot unless I just have some on hand. I don't think it adds that much to the recipe, other than color. While the recipe calls for 2 1/2 cups of vegetable broth, I usually just use one can and then add enough water to make 2 1/2 cups. We sometimes squirt a little lime juice on the rice as well ... really adds to the flavor.
