1 c. packed fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 c. packed fresh parsley leaves
1/2 small onion, chopped
1 garlic clove
1 3/4 cups water
Salt & Pepper
1 tsp. olive oil
1 c. rice

In a blender, combine fresh cilantro leaves, fresh parsley leaves, onion, garlic clove, and water. Season with salt and ground pepper and blend until smooth, 15 seconds.

In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high. Add 1 cup rice and stir to coat. Add herb mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove pan from heat and stir in lentils or beans, let sit, covered, 5 minutes. Add lime juice and fluff with a fork.
