Ingredients

    1.5 cup dry brown basmati rice - or about 4.5 cups cooked rice
    3 cups water
    2 tbsp Butter, salted
    50 grams fresh cilantro, chopped (about 1-1/5 c before chopping)
    1 tsp Mrs. Dash (R) Original Blend
    .5 large onion, small dice
    4 tbsp Lime Juice, juice of 1 lime
    2 clove Garlic, pressed or chopped fine
    1 serving cooking spray 4 second spray
    1 tsp Salt
    .5 tsp freshly cracked black pepper or to taste

Directions

Cook rice according to package instructions, use pre-cooked leftover rice, or...
Place dry rice, water, 1/2 tsp salt, and Mrs. Dash blend in pot. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and cover, allowing to lightly simmer and steam (without peeking or removing lid!) for 20 minutes or until water is fully absorbed. Uncover, squeeze in the juice of 2 fresh limes, stir, and recover. Allow to sit for about 5-10 minutes.

(If using left-over plain rice, add lime juice, salt, and spices in the next step.)

Spray a light coat of cooking spray (or small spritz of oil) into a large fry-pan (non-stick). Add chopped onion and garlic and cook on low heat until onions are soft and translucent. Add chopped cilantro and butter, stirring until butter is just melted. Add cooked rice, the rest of the salt, and black pepper to taste. Stir until veggies are fully incorporated and fully heated (if using cold-rice).
