Plain white rice is not going to get the gang sprinting to the dinner table. If you expect to elicit any enthusiasm from your crew, your meal needs a base or side dish that deserves it – like cilantro lime rice. With better-for-you brown rice, zesty citrus and flavorful cilantro, this recipe will grab the group’s attention—and their appetites.
