2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves

1/4 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

1/2 teaspoon lime zest

1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat your broiler to high.
  2. Heat the rice in your microwave until it's warmed through.
