One herb I plant every year without fail is cilantro…I know it’s a love or hate it one but it does add a lot of flavor to dishes, especially quick and easy one like this rice side dish. The cilantro is already in abundance in my garden so I thought I’d share this recipe with you. Serve it with just about anything from beef to fish, and it even gives vegetarian dishes an extra boost of flavor too.
