You might be wondering why I’m posting a rice recipe when most our recipes are Paleo. Well, not everything I eat is paleo. This is one of those foods I like to occasionally add into my diet for the extra fiber and simply because I like rice. I made this with brown rice, but obviously it works just the same with white. When cooking at home I always use brown rice but I don’t stress when I go to a restaurant and they only offer white. Brown rice has only been stripped of it’s outermost layer, thus avoiding the loss of nutrients that occurs when making white rice.
This Cilantro-Lime Rice is great with chicken, beef, and my favorite…salmon. I prefer to use a rice cooker to cook my rice. With the click of a button the rice comes out perfect every time! Because of my current living situation, my rice cooker is one of those things I had to put in storage…boy do I miss it! I now take my bag of rice over to my parent’s house when we are visiting Sundays and cook it in their rice cooker just because it is so much easier than doing it on the stove at home. It can be done, I just can’t ever seem to get the brown rice soft enough when cooked on the stove. #brownriceproblems
