Ginger & Cilantro Lime Rice


It's that time of the week when my husband is asking for rice again. This time, I decided to pair it up with the Lemon Curry Chicken I made for dinner. The chicken dish has amazing flavors of lemon, curry and sesame oil so to compliment that, I came up with the following recipe for Ginger Cilantro Lime Rice.

The freshly grated ginger makes the rice fragrant, while the chopped cilantro offers a burst of freshness. Finally the freshly squeezed lime juice brings it all together with a nice subtle tang. For additional flavor, I also added a pinch of garlic powder and salt to taste.

Ginger & Cilantro Lime Rice
original Joelen recipe

2 cups freshly prepared steamed jasmine rice
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1 teaspoon fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1 1/2 teapoons fresh lime juice
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
salt to taste

Prepare 2 cups of steamed jasmine rice. Once it's cooked, add the remaining ingredients and lightly fluff together to combine. Cover and allow it to sit for at least 5 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to meld.
