This rice is so delicious,whether eaten in combination as a side dish or frankly on its own. My son loves this rice wrapped in a Burrito and I like this to accompany my Tapas, your choice,but it is delicious and very versatile to have around.
1 tbps good Spanish olive oil
1 cup long grain rice ( I used Basmati )
1 1/2 cups vegetable stock
salt to taste
4 tbps finely chopped fresh cilantro
Juice of one lime
1 to 2 serrano chilis, sliced lengthwise
2 cloves garlic,finely chopped
1 Bay leaf
Heat oil,stir in garlic and chilis, stir briefly.
Stir in rice and salt. Toss to coat each grain well. Pour in stock and bay leaf . Allow rice to cook and come to a full rolling boil,stirring occasionally.
Lowe heat and cover till all the liquid is absorbed. Off heat and allow rice to sit, covered for 10 minutes.
Remove lid and pour in lime juice and cilantro,stir gently. Serve.
