“Hello good people!” I work with a guy who starts his emails and his Zoom calls with that refrain. I appreciate the optimism, the assumption, the expectation, the positivity, and the consistency that everyone receives (and deserves) the same welcome. We need more of that these days. I look forward to his greeting and the feeling that it creates.
Travis has approached cooking this summer with that same optimism. He has tried numerous recipes – some achieved his expectations, others not so much. This is one that should receive a “hello good recipe!” refrain.
- 2 cups jasmine rice
- 3 cups water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4-5 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
- 1 lime, juiced
Put water, rice, salt, olive oil and bay leaf in a medium-sized pot and then stir. Cover the pot with a lid and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for 12-15 minutes until the water is absorbed.
Transfer cooked rice to a mixing bowl. Stir in the chopped cilantro and lime juice. Stir and enjoy, good people!
