Chipotle Cilantro-Lime Rice

Steamed white rice tossed with freshly chopped cilantro, a dash of citrus juice and a little salt.

1 teaspoon olive oil
2 teaspoons fresh cilantro
2/3 cup white basmati rice
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Lime

In a 2-quart heavy saucepan, heat oil over low heat. Add rice and the juice from half of one fresh lime, stir for 1 minute. Add water and salt, bring to a full rolling boil. Once boiling, cover, turn down to simmer over low heat until rice is tender and the water is absorbed, about 25 minutes. Add the chopped cilantro and the juice from the other half of the lime. Fluff rice with a fork.
