Green Rice

This rice was a great side dish for fish tacos. It is basically straight from the following link, with the addition of coconut milk:
Below are my notes and modifications.

2/3 + cup cilantro, loosely packed, plus extra for garnish
1/2 small chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped scalions, plus 1-2 extra scallions for garnish
2 jalapenos 
2 tbsp lime juice
1-2 tsp olive oil

All above ingredients are pureed in a blender. This can be done in advance.

(1 cup of uncooked Basmati rice was cooked the usual way. I should have added salt.)

Add the puree to the cooked rice. Fold in about 1/4 to 1/2 can of coconut milk.
Garnish with chopped scallion and cilantro. 

I read in the comments from the above link that adding the puree earlier allows for more flavors to seep in. Adding the puree later (like right before serving) allows for a brighter more dramatic color.
