Cilantro Rice with a Fried Egg


While I love fried eggs with anything, I love them with rice. I make this cilantro rice. Can be made for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Cilantro Rice

  • 1 cup rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp butter or oil (optional)
  1. Bring the water to boil in a pot, I like to use a bigger pot to ensure that it doesn’t boil over. A 2-quart saucepan for one to two cups of uncooked rice is a good size.
  2. When the water has come to a boil, stir in the rice, salt, and butter (if using), and bring it back to a gentle simmer.
  3.  Cover the pot and turn the heat down to low. Don’t take off the lid while the rice is cooking — this lets the steam out and affects the cooking time. Total 15-18 minutes.
  4. Add in Cilantro Sauce while stirring the fluffy rice.

Cilantro Sauce

  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp Cracked Salt
  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor until fully pureed. This will produce a very flavorful cilantro sauce. Store up to a week.
