  • arroz verde
    Arroz verde, or cilantro rice, is a common accompaniment in Peruvian cuisine. It goes perfectly with a rotisserie chicken or grilled fish and your favorite veggies. I brought this to the PBNC office for a potluck lunch to thank and say farewell to a couple of awesome Summer volunteers! Unfortunately, it turned out that one of those lovely volunteers didn't like cilantro! Thank goodness there was pleny of other deliciousness at the table. Rest assured, the entire large bowl of cilantro rice was devoured by the rest of us. =) cilantrochicken stockmedium or long-grain white riceolive oilchick stock
