Put the Lime in the Rice...

We like rice in our family, but we like to change it up a lot...

I have lots of tricks to change the flavor you just need to always remember the 1x2 ratio of dry rice to liquid...and all will usually turn out great.

The recipe that I threw together last night had a hint of lime, I'll put more in next I'll write my recipe to how I should have made it and not how I actually did...

Lime Infused Rice
1 Tbl butter
1 cup rice
2-3 garlic cloves, finely grated
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
zest of 1-2 limes
1 tsp salt
1 Tbs fresh parsley chopped

Melt butter in sauce pan, add rice & garlic and sauté until the rice turns white.  Add the rest of the ingredients, stir once, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
