Cilantro Lime Rice with Vegan Tzatziki

Cilantro lime rice is an easy, budget-friendly recipe anyone can make. The cilantro adds vibrant color, while the lime gives the rice some zest.

This recipe reminds me of summer, probably because it is super light and fresh.

You can enjoy this dish as a side to balance heavy dishes or to have alongside other Mediterranean foods.
