Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1-2 cups chicken broth*
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • In a blender add chicken broth*, parsley, cilantro, jalapeno, minced garlic, onion powder, and lime juice and blend until fully combined.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a medium sauce pan over medium heat.
  • Add the rice and stir to coat completely in oil. Cook, stirring occasionally for 2-3 minutes, until rice is lightly toasted.
  • Add the chicken broth mixture and stir to combine.
  • Turn the heat up to high, and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Once the mixture is boiling, put the lid on the sauce pan and reduce heat to low. Cook for about 20 minutes*, or until liquid is absorbed and rice is fully cooked.
  • While rice is cooking, mash avocado in a small bowl, using a fork, until totally smooth. Add salt and stir to combine.
  • Once rice is done cooking, remove from heat and allow it to rest for about 5 minutes.
  • Using a fork, fluff the rice. Add the avocado mixture and stir until combined.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

*The amount of chicken broth you use and the cook time for your rice depend on the instructions for the brand of rice you are using. If the instructions say to use 1 cup of water per cup of rice and cook for 20 minutes, then for this recipe use 1 cup of chicken broth and cook for 20 minutes.
