Lime Cilantro Rice

2 cups water

1 tablespoon coconut oil

2 drops Lime essential oil

1 cup white rice

1/2 toothpick swirl Cilantro essential oil

1/2 cup green chili salsa

Fresh cilantro

Dash sea salt and ground pepper


Bring water to a boil, and add coconut oil, essential oils, and rice.  Cover and reduce to low heat.  Simmer until rice is tender, approximately 20 minutes.  Stir in salsa and chopped cilantro, and add salt and pepper to taste.

NOTE - I like to do this with brown rice.  Plan on doubling the cooking time with brown rice.  The zip of the lime with the nutty flavor of the brown rice is rich with depth.
