roughly -chopped epazote or cilantro Sea salt to taste Green Rice Put the rice into a bowl and pour very hot water over to cover; stir and set aside for 10 minutes. Drain in a strainer and rinse in cold water; drain again and set aside. Heat the oil in a heavy pan stir the rice into it and fry over fairly high heat stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan for about 5 minutes. Add the onion and chile strips and continue frying for 4 minutes or until the onion is translucent. Meanwhile put 1 cup of the broth into a blender jar; add the garlic parsley and epazote and blend until smooth. Add this to the frying rice and continue frying and reducing the puree over quite high heat stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan until the rice is dry. Stir in the rest of the broth add salt to taste and cook over fairly high heat uncovered until the liquid has been absorbed and there are air holes in the rice. Cover with a towel and lid and continue cooking over low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside still covered in a warm place for the rice to swell up. Before serving turn the rice over with a fork from the bottom where a lot of the flavor and oil will have settled. The Art of Mexican Cooking From the collection of Jim Vorheis
