Lime and Cilantro Rice

This is an easy meal for when I want something with a lot of flavor and don’t have enough time to cook a big meal. It surprises me because friends request this rice. Sometimes the simplest things make the best meals, I guess. When I don’t have green onions, I use yellow onion. I also don’t always have cilantro on hand, so then it just becomes Quick and Easy Lime Rice. It’s still good, and I’m sure you’ll find lost of ways to modify this recipe.

Ingredients: 

2 cups cooked rice (if I’m in a pinch, I use a bag of frozen brown rice from Trader Joe’s).

1 squeezed lime (add more or less to taste)

1/4 cup fresh cilantro *not pictured 😉

1/4 cup chopped green onions

1 clove finely chopped garlic

salt and pepper to taste

Optional: 

Half an avocado

3 chopped artichoke hearts

a pinch of red pepper flakes

Directions: 

Squeeze the lime into the rice. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
