  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped white onions
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  • Place ½ cup of the chicken broth with the cilantro and cumin in the blender. Blend until well combined and set aside. Heat the butter over medium temperature in a medium pot.
  • Add the onions and garlic, and cook until the onions are soft for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the rice and stir it well, add the cilantro mixture and the rest of the broth and bring it to a boil.
  • Let the liquid reduce until it barely covers the rice, cover with a lid, reduce the temperature to low, and cook for about 20-25 min.
