2 cups short grain rice preferably Morelos type
1 bunch cilantro reserve a few sprigs for garnish
½ medium white onion
cloves garlic
1 tsp. salt
4 to 5 cups of water

  • Add the cilantro, onion, garlic and ½ cup of water to your blender jar
  • Blend until smooth about 1 minute
  • RICE
  • Preheat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pot over medium heat
  • Pour the uncooked rice into the hot oil
  • Stir to coat the rice with oil and cook for about 30 seconds until the rice is just starting to brown and become fragrant
  • Add the pureed cilantro mixture to the rice
  • Add 4 cups of water to the rice

  • Reduce the heat to low (do not cover)
