Green Rice


In food processor fitted with chopping blade, combine 2 cups cilantro leaves (usually 1 bunch), 1 large onion-quartered, 2 cloves garlic-minced, 1 tsp salt: process until very finely chopped and well blended. In a large heavy saucepan, heat 3-4 Tbs. olive oil over medium heat. Add cilantro mixture and cook for 5 min. Stir in 4 Cups Brown rice (I like Trader Joes Jasmine brown rice the best) (or plain white rice) and cook for 1 min. Add 8 Cups water; heat to boiling and simmer for 45 min. (or 15-20 Min. if white rice). The cilantro mix will rise to the top. Do not stir the rice while cooking. Only check to see if the water is absorbed. Then stir in the cilantro mix that has risen to the top when done. Shake in some garlic salt to taste.
