Green Rice

So this is another that isn't really a veggie. But I don't care.

1 cup dry rice
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 pound spinach leaves, deveined and coarsely chopped
4 scallions, coarsely chopped
2 limes, zested, juiced

Heat 1 1/2 cups broth in a sauce pot with a bay leaf to boiling. Add rice, cover pot, reduce heat to low and simmer 18 minutes until tender.

Place the cilantro, spinach, scallions, lime zest, half a cup of stock and a tablespoon of oil in food processor and process into coarse green paste. Stir into the rice pot in the last 3 to 4 minutes of its cooking time.
