Cilantro Rice TNT!!

Cilantro Rice


1 cup fresh cilantro
2 cloves garlic
1 fresh jalepeno stemmed
2 1/2 cups vegetable broth (can use chicken)
2 tsp olive oil
1 1/2 cups long grain rice
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/3 cup grated carrot
salt to taste

In a blender whirl 1cup cilantro, garlic, jalepeno, and 1 cup broth until smooth.

In a 3-4 quart pan over medium heat stir oil, rice, onion powder, and cumin until rice is pale golden, 5-8 mins. Stir in cilantro mixture, remaining broth and carrot. Cover, bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat and simmer until liquid is absorbed, about 18 mins. Season with salt and pepper to taste, garnish with fresh cilantro.

I forgot to mention that this is NOT a spicy dish as is....but you could always add in more jalepeno than it calls for if you do want it spicy! The jalepeno that is in the recipe really just adds flavor but no heat.

What a delicious recipe. I think I'll try it this week with a poblano pepper I have in the refrigerator.

mmmm This I'm definitely going to try!

I use a similar base (Rotel tomatoes with green chilies, an onion, garlic, a serrano pepper and cilantro whirled in a blender) when making Tortilla soup and it's fabulous. I just may have to try that when making rice sometime now too.

Oh, that does sound delicious. I think maybe it will be part of dinner tomorrow, seeing I will have to go to the grocery for cilantro. That would go well with the chicken breasts I had planned on having. Thanks for sharing, Dee.

Hi deelady, if you want to experiment here is a slightly different recipe and it also works out very well. Give it a shot sometime.

- Cilantro 1 bunch washed roughly chopped
- 1 green chili (yes you want the spice), jalapeno works fine
- juice of 1 lime
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 can of coconut milk
- salt to taste

Blend all of this together and reserve.

Wash basmati rice several times and drain.

In a pan add the oil when it's hot add the cumin seeds, veggies ( I use match stick carrots, red and green bellpeppers and peas) and cooked and diced chicken of your choice. Add the drained rice and the cilantro coconut sauce. Add a tiny bit of water if needed. Cover and cook as you would any rice.

sounds great! I'll have to remember to pick up coconut milk!!
Do you dice the jalepeno? or does all the ingredients go in a blender like my recipe?? and how much cumin do you usually use? about a teaspoon I would guess?


Thank you Yakuta! :)
