Hello all– I had a couple pork loin chops for dinner tonight, but no plan for what to serve alongside them. So I poked around in the fridge and found the end of some cilantro, a couple green onions and a red pepper– good enough for a lovely little bowl of rice. It turned out just fine–
1 cup white (or brown) rice
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups water
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup red pepper, chopped finely
Cook the rice with the salt and water– just ten minutes after it starts to simmer (but 15 to 20 minutes longer for brown rice). When you’re ready to serve it, stir in the cilantro, green onions and red pepper and then turn it out into a pretty bowl to set on the table. Isn’t that easy? and nice.
