The following receipe is from Closet Cooking on his blog and it is tweaked copycat/upgraded version of the rice in Chipotle's burritos.

As I use quick rice, I and have dried instead of fresh cilantro, I will be tweaking it further, but I love how this sounds.

Cilantro and Lime Rice by Closet Cooking(makes 4+ side dish servings)


  • 1 tablespoon oil

  • 1/2 onion (chopped)

  • 1 clove garlic (chopped)

  • 1 cup long grained rice (I like to use brown)

  • 2 cups water1 handful cilantro (chopped)

  • 1 lime (juice and zest)


1. Heat the oil in a pan.

2. Add the onion and saute until tender, about 5-7 minutes.

3. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about a minute.

4. Add the rice and toast in the oil for a few minutes.

5. Add the water, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered until tender, about 20 minutes for white rice or 40-50 minutes for brown.

6. Remove from the heat and mix in the cilantro, lime juice and zest.
