                                        Turmeric Rice
                                            (posted 10/2)

 

Ingredients:
- 1 1/2 cups organic rice
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 small yellow onion, finely diced
- 1 tsp. turmeric powder
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil or ghee
- 2 cups vegetable or mushroom broth
- Deep cooking pan or pot

 

Directions:
1. Heat the oil/ghee and once it's warm add the onion and saute until transparent, next add garlic and saute for another 4 minutes. Stire in the rice to the mixture, then stire in the Turmeric. Pour the vegetable broth into the deep pan or pot.
2. Cover and over medium high heat, bring the rice to a boil. Once the rice has boiled turn the heat to low heat. Leaving the pot partially covered, allow a small crack for a little of the heat to escape. Continue cooking until rice is soft and cooked through and all of the broth has been absorbed. This should take about 15-20 minutes.
3. You should check on the rice to make sure that it is softening and if all of the broth has been absorbed but if the rice is still raw you can add a little more broth at a time and continue to cook until softened.
