Flavored Rice Wraps
I use about 1/2 cup of cooked rice of one of the rice recipes below per wrap. Add your favorite veggies for something different in your lunch box.
Cilantro Lime Rice
1 cup rice
2 cups water
1 tsp chicken bouillon granules or soup base
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
salt to taste
Bring rice, water and bouillon to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20-25 minutes. Remove from heat, add juice, cilantro and salt. Stir to mix well.
Orange Ginger Rice (my favorite)
1 medium onion, diced
1 cup rice
1 tsp orange zest
1 tbsp fresh ginger
juice from the orange
chicken stock or broth - approximately 2 cups
Saute onion about 1 minute in a saucepan (I did not use any oil or fat - just the onion) until translucent.
Add rice and saute anohter minute.
Add orange zest and ginger - cook 1 minute more
Put orange juice in a 2 cup measuring cup. Fill to 2 cups with the broth.
Add to the rice mixture in the sauce pan. Bring to a boil.
Cover and cook on low for 20-25 minutes.
