In this recipe, simply adding some cilantro and lime can transform a mundane frozen package of Trader Joe’s white rice into a fancy-tasting side dish. Try this with Tequila Shrimp or substitute it in for normal rice in your favorite burrito recipe.
You will need…
2-3 tablespoons of chopped Cilantro
2 tablespoons Lime Juice
Lime Zest from one small Lime
1 pouch of frozen Trader Joe’s White Rice
Place the Cilantro, Lime Juice and Lime Zest in a serving bowl. Cook the packet of rice according to the package instructions (for TJ’s white rice, microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes). Add cooked rice to serving bowl and stir to combine.
