Cooking with Aubrey

Cilantro Lime Rice

Publishing this recipe, feels a little like I’m cheating. It’s just a few basic ingredients combined together. However I’ve served this to company twice in the last two weeks and each time someone has asked for the recipe, so I decided to share this with you; dear readers. I only measure the rice and water because the correct ratios are important. Otherwise ingredients are simply mixed together.

It’s such a yummy side dish. Next time I need to make a larger batch so I’ll have a bowl for lunch the next day. It’s so good with lemony shrimp & broccoli, chili, burrito bowls, and other Mexican dishes.


  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • Water
  • Sea salt
  • Lime
  • Handful of cilantro, chopped (~3 Tbsp)
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil


  1. Cook basmati rice according to the directions on the package. (Should only need about 12-15 minutes of cooking time). Remove from heat and keep covered for 5 minutes.
  2. While the rice cooks, combine sea salt, juice of 1 lime and cilantro to a serving bowl.
  3. Add coconut oil to the pan. Stir and add the rice to the cilantro lime mixture and serve warm.
