Turmeric Yellow Rice
This turmeric yellow rice is full of aromatic flavors and makes an elegant side dish! Simple to prep in a rice cooker or on the stove top.
- 1 cup basmati rice note 1
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil or unsalted butter
- ½ teaspoon turmeric note 2
- ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon onion powder note 3
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 cups stock chicken or vegetable
Before cooking, rinse the rice in a colander under the tap, or by covering with water, swirling, and carefully decanting (repeat 2-3 times until water becomes clear).
In a medium pot, combine the rinsed basmati rice with the coconut oil, turmeric, ground ginger, salt, onion powder, garlic powder and stock.
Cover and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer (covered) for 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and let sit for another 10 minutes before fluffing with a fork and serving.
Combine the basmati rice with the coconut oil, turmeric, ground ginger, salt, onion powder, garlic powder and stock.
Cook using the 'white rice' function (or regular function if there is not a white rice option).
Once the cook time is up, fluff with a fork and enjoy!
1- you may use any long grain or brown rice for this recipe; check the package and adjust the stock and cook time as needed; long grain brown rice will take a significantly longer amount of time to cook.
2- fresh turmeric will probably work in this recipe, but I have not tested; leave us a comment on the post if you give it a try!
3- if you'd like to swap the onion and garlic powder for fresh ingredients, try ½ an onion (finely diced) and 2 cloves of garlic. Sautee in the oil until softened before adding the other ingredients.
Get the cooked rice into the fridge within 2 hours of cooking and do not let it sit out at room temperature for extended periods of time.
- store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days
- freeze in a meal prep container or bag for up to 3 months
- heat until steaming hot in the microwave; do not reheat more than once
