Chimichurri sauce, a blend of fresh herbs and citrus, makes a great base for this rice dish. Make this Chimichurri Rice recipe to serve with grilled meats, Mexican night, and Mediterranean foods, too!
1 bunch of cilantro
1 bunch of parsley
juice from 2 limes
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. smoked paprika
3 cups jasmine rice
- To start, you just need to throw a bunch of fresh cilantro and parsley into a blender along with lime juice, olive oil, onion, garlic, salt and smoked(!!) paprika. Give it a whirl until smooth.
- If you have a rice cooker, that's the easiest way to go. There was a time that I thought this was an unnecessary appliance. That was also the time that I never cooked rice because it either came out mushy or hard. Now, I just throw in the right ration of rice and water and press start. Perfect. Every. Time.
- Once the rice is done, open the rice cooker and let the steam escape for a few minutes. Pour in the chimichurri sauce and give it a good stir. Serve with your favorite grilled meats and a slice of lime! Delish!
