This is a favorite side dish on in my house on Taco Tuesdays! We love the zip of flavor that it brings to the plate. This recipe is made in the instant pot, but you can always prepare your rice on the stove top and just add in the other ingredients to make it without!
Instant Pot Cilantro Lime Rice
1 cup white rice
1 1/4 cups water or vegetable stock
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup lime juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (or 1 clove fresh chopped garlic)
zest from one lime (optional)
1/4 cup cilantro, fresh chopped
Place your rice, water, and salt into your pressure cooker. Seal the lid and cook on manual high pressure for 7 minutes. While the rice is cooking, whisk together the lime juice and garlic powder. When the time is up, use the quick release method to release the pressure. Carefully remove the lid and add in the lime juice.
