Cilantro Brown Rice and Red Potatoes

Who else loves potatoes and rice together? Hey, that is really good! Because you have come to the right recipe! Cilantro Brown Rice and Red Potatoes are so easy to make, and they taste great...

I love rice and potatoes together. And this Cilantro Brown Rice with Red Potatoes side dish is delicious. It is also very easy, just throw everything into your InstaPot or Electric Pressure Cooker, press start, and that's it...The cilantro is added right before serving to add a delicate herb flavor that goes with almost everything. 

We have enjoyed Cilantro Brown Rice and Red Potatoes with  Three Ingredient Pineapple Thai Chicken, and Chicken Baked with Peaches Thyme and Dijon, but don't stop there! The flavors in this rice dish will complement any main dish you serve it alongside. While pineapple and rice are natural taste partners this side dish will complement any bold-flavored main dish. 

This is a side dish we will enjoy again and again.

  • brown rice
