We Can’t Get Enough Of This Turmeric Rice

Are you looking for the perfect side dish that adds a huge pop of flavor (and color!) to basically any main dish you’re making?

If so, we have it for you today. (And, if not,  you should still read on because this recipe is AWESOME.)

Say hello to Turmeric Rice — your new SDBF.

(AKA: Side dish best friend.)

We’ve had this turmeric rice alongside pot roast. We’ve had it with curry (obviously). We’ve had it with stir-fry. We’ve had it with roasted chicken. We’ve had alongside veggies and fish. We’ve even had it in salads!

The only way we haven’t had it is as dessert, but now that we’re thinking about it, we could probably whip it into a rice pudding and still love it.

So, yeah. It does everything. And, it’s naturally gluten-free. Make a big pot of turmeric rice tonight, and enjoy it with all the foods, all week long!

      I think so! Just adjust the cooking times based on the package of your rice. 🙂
