1 c white rice
2 c water
1 TBSP olive oil
pinch of salt
Juice of 1 lime
2 TBSP cilantro, finely chopped

Rinse and drain rice in a strainer
Put water in a pot and place on stove on high until it begins to boil
Add the oil and salt to boiling water and stir
Add rice to the pot
Once the water reaches a boil again, cover and reduce to low
Let simmer for about 15 minutes until all of the water is absorbed
I stir my rice only once while it cooks, usually after about 10 minutes or so
Once the water is absorbed, remove the rice from heat
Add in the chopped cilantro and lime juice, stir just until it's mixed 

Just in case you are getting bored of the coconut rice, this is another great, simple rice recipe that goes well with a lot of different proteins. I would highly recommend it in a bowl with taco season flavored ground meat and some guac, YUM!
