We were all very excited to meet at Jodi's newly re-modeled townhome for January's Gourmet Group on January 8, 2008. Andrea brought a yummy "Bread Dip Appetizer"; Lynley created each of us our own "Fabulous Wedge Salads"; Jodi baked a delicious "Chicken Elizabeth"; Bridget's side dish was "Cilantro Lime Rice", and Lara's Desert was "Apple Crostata" (pictured). Unfortunately L.S. provided our very first "Recipe Disaster" with her rolls/donuts/dough. :) As always we enjoyed catching up as friends and shared a wonderful meal.
Cilantro Lime Rice
4 TBS butter
2 TBS cilantro, minced
2 green onions chopped
4 cups (2 cans) chicken broth, hot
2 cups jasmine rice
grated zest of 2 limes
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter in pan and saute the onions until tender. Add the rice and cook until coated with butter. Stir in the lime, cilantro and the broth. Cover and place in oven. Bake until the liquid is absorbed and rice is tender, about 20-25 min. Serves 6-8.
