Mexican Cilantro and Parsley Rice

Coriander Rice


Are you looking for a quick, easy, healthy lunch, which can eat ‘n’ times. This is just about the easiest flavourful rice. It begins with brown rice and loaded with cilantro and parsley for brilliant color and unique taste. I added jalapeno for a spicy kick as an optional ingredient.

Enjoy with Coco beans curry (Recipe link). Like more toppings to your meal add Mexican Salsa (Recipe link) and sour cream.
