Low FODMAP Cilantro Lime Rice is the perfect base for a burrito, stir-fry, or curry.
Based on my favorite Chipotle staple, this Low FODMAP Cilantro Lime Rice is not only great for building burrito bowls, but also served under curries or stir-fry.
Personally, I prefer to use white basmati rice in this recipe, which I’ve based the instructions on. However, if you’d like to use whole grain brown basmati rice (it is also low FODMAP), just increase the cooking time to the package’s recommendations (usually 35-45 minutes).

After making this recipe, my fiancé confessed to me that he previously hated quinoa… But this recipe made him change his mind! He loves it now!
I didn’t have limes so I substituted with lemon which worked as well.
Absolutely love making with the carnitas!
Yum! Carnitas & Cilantro Lime Rice … one of my favorite meals! Thanks for trying! 🙂
