Hi guys!

Back in the day I used to buy all those packaged rice boxes.  My Mom always did and I didn’t know any better.

As I learned to cook more and wanted to make more homemade food with natural ingredients I started to add my own flavors to rice.  I’m all about taking shortcuts in the kitchen, but sometimes it’s nice to create whole foods from scratch.  I started getting creative and stopped buying those boxes.  I was pleasantly surprised at just how easy it was and how much better it tasted!

One of my favorites is my Cilantro Lime Brown Rice recipe… it’s simple, healthy and oh so delicious.  And oh yeah… it tastes like that fabulous burrito chain I love so much.

The best part about this Cilantro Lime Brown Rice recipe is how versatile it is.  You can use it as a side dish or base for a homemade burrito or burrito bowl.  It also goes great with my black beans recipe which I’m sharing Thursday.

The possibilities are endless!

I’m all about kitchen shortcuts but when a recipe is this easy, no shortcut is needed.

I double dog dare ya to give it a try and ditch that boxed rice for this every once in awhile!  I would not steer you wrong.

It may be simple, but sometimes simple really is best because it really lets the flavor shine!  I hope you enjoy my cilantro lime brown rice recipe. Make sure to come back Thursday for my favorite simple black beans.

    This is the perfect simple side dish! I’m not much of a cilantro fan, however, my Mum is and I know she’d love this recipe! Passing it onto her now! xo

    Mmmm I love cilantro rice! So good! It’s a great way to give rice a zing. I especially like to serve it with black beans.

    Yup, me too. Live and learn though, right?

    This looks so easy and tasty Julie! I actually *just* photographed my own cilantro brown rice that will be on the blog soon. It’s a little different but I just didn’t want you to think I stole your idea! Excited to try yours too!
