Lime Cilantro Rice

I am always looking for ways to make plain, boring white rice into not so boring white rice!

I also got me a new gadget for my kitchen! A Microplane! I have wanted one of these for SO LONG! Just go to Bed Bath and Beyond and they have a whole wall of them! It makes zesting a whole lot easier!
