One of my favorite parts of the burrito bowls that you get at Mexican restaurants is the rice. I’ve never been able to master the proper lime/cilantro proportions but I think that this recipe accomplishes the perfect flavor combination. This rice makes for a delicious side dish or is great for an at-home burrito bowl. The best part is that there are only 55 calories in a 1/2 cup serving. I also chose to replace white rice with a whole grain Jasmine for an extra nutritional benefit.
Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add in the oil and then swirl to coat and heat. Add in the onion and saute for about 5 minutes. Stir in rice, chicken broth and 1 tablespoon of lime juice.
Bring the rice mixture to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed. Remove the rice from the heat and add in the remaining 1 tablespoon of lime juice and cilantro. Fluff the rice with a fork and serve.
