Sample Recipe: Cilantro-Lime Chicken and Rice
Prep time: 10 minutes / Cook time: 5 to 7 hours on low / Serves 6
Cilantro is the leafy part of the same herb from which we get coriander. The little coriander seeds are actually the fruit of the plant. Fresh coriander leaves have a bright, citrusy flavor that you can’t get from parsley or any other leafy green herb. Because heat takes away the bright flavor, cilantro is usually added to a dish after it is cooked.
1. Spray the slow cooker generously with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In the slow cooker, combine the chicken, rice, water, tomatoes and their juices, beans, corn, garlic, lime juice, cumin, salt, pepper, and oregano. Stir to mix well.
3. Cook on low for 5 to 7 hours, or until the rice is tender.
4. Sprinkle with fresh cilantro before serving.
To make this meal vegan, leave out the chicken and add 1/2 pound dry black beans that have been soaked overnight.
