The perfect side dish does exist!

I swear I make this rice dish a few times a month as it has easily become a favourite in my household! My toddler always asks for the “green rice” - he’s a cilantro lover just like his mom!

This dish is perfect for grilled chicken, curry dishes or served alongside stir fry. It’s quick and flavourful and uses basic ingredients you just might have on hand!

I like to use jasmine rice in this recipe but I’m sure you could sub in what you have - you may need to adjust the liquid ratio however 😊 Enjoy!
