Instructions
  1. Zest half the lime, then juice it. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil over medium in a medium sized saucepan.
  3. Add onion and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to get tender, about 5 minutes. (You can cook it longer if you'd like the onion to be less present in the final product). Add the garlic and cook for a minute more.
  4. Reduce the heat to low, then add the rice. Stirring constantly, toast for 2 to 3 minutes, or until fragrant. Add the broth, lime zest, and raise the heat to medium high to bring the mix to a boil.
  5. Once it starts to boil, reduce heat to a simmer, then cover and cook until the rice is done, about 40 minutes.
  6. Once all the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is cooked, fluff it with a form. Stir in the cilantro and lime juice. Add more salt or lime juice as needed.
  7. Serve immediately as a tasty side dish or in a burrito, or chill and store for up to a week.
  8. This rice is surprisingly versatile, welcome in nearly everything from Mexican to Thai dishes, so make a big batch!
