  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Add rice and mix until clumps form.
  2. Stir water, cilantro, salt, and lemon juice into the saucepan. Simmer uncovered until most of the water has been absorbed, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute lime juice for the lemon juice if desired.

I've never seen any Brazilians put cilantro in their rice. Thats more of a Mexican thing, and not a Portuguese thing. I didn't like the flavor... That is just MY opinion

Wonderful flavour and I'm not sure if cooking it with the lid off changed the texture but it came out perfectly fluffy for me as 10 mins (no lid) and 15 mins (closed lid.) I will definitely mak...

This rice is fabulous! So easy to make and very flavorful. I paired it with Brazilian Chicken with coconut milk recipe. It was perfect!

I liked this rice. It really kept its texture similar to a brown rice. The cook time was perfect. Though, I did soften the onion and garlic on medium and simmered at the temperature before cover...

Made this exactly as the recipe suggested and it was wonderful. It tastes almost identical to the rice I love at Chipotle.

This is the best technique for rice! Thanks for a great recipe.
