Joanna Gaines Cilantro Lime Rice

by 👩‍🍳 Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA 👩‍🍳, April 04, 2022

Oh, this is a good one.  It's fresh, zingy, deliciously wonderful rice and this is coming from a girl who doesn't care for cilantro.  But in this dish, it just brings it all together.  I made her entire meal from an episode on Magnolia Table and it was delicious.  I'll be doing this again soon, for sure.


4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup basmati or long-grain white rice ~ I used basmati
1 3/4 cups chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


In a medium saucepan, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium-high heat. Add the rice and sauté until the rice begins to brown a little, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the broth and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork.

Meanwhile, in a small glass bowl, melt the remaining 3 tablespoons butter in the microwave, about 30 seconds. Stir in the lime zest and juice.

Pour the lime butter over the hot rice, add the cilantro, and stir until combined. Season with the salt and pepper.
