Cilantro Lime Rice

I love this easy Cilantro Lime Rice that you can enjoy at home with all your Mexican favorites.  A restaurant classic, making it at home means no chance of cross contact with gluten!

Just about everyone will love this mild flavored rice and it pairs nicely with spicier foods.  The ingredients are naturally gluten free and it’s ready in 20 minutes.

4 Servings


  • 1/2 cup white rice
  • 1-1/4 cups water
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. butter
  • 1/4 cup frozen corn, defrosted
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Cook 1/2 cup of white rice in 1 cup water, with salt and butter, 15 minutes.  Stir in an additional 1/4 cup of water along with the corn, half of the cilantro and the lime juice, cook 5 minutes longer.

Finish with the rest of the cilantro and a slice of lime.

Here I’ve paired it with a simple meal of grilled chicken and veggies.  Absolutely delicious!
