Simple Cilantro-Lime Rice

This is so basic but such a good addition to any Mexican or Tex-Mex dish.  I made it with basic minute rice because I was short on time, but feel free to use your favorite brand or type of rice.  Quinoa would probably even be a good base.

Serves 2-4.
1 1/2 C white minute rice
1 1/2 C water
1/4 C cilantro, finely chopped
1-2 TBSP lime juice (about 1 1/2 fresh limes)
zest of 1 lime
1 TBSP olive oil

Bring the water and 1/2-1 TBSP lime juice to a boil.
Add the rice and cover for 5 minutes.
(-OR- Prepare the rice according to the preparation directions)
Add cilantro, lime zest, and remaining lime juice (to taste) and mix completely.
Serve warm as a side or in a taco or burrito.
