Super Easy Yellow Rice Recipe

     This yellow rice is so easy to make and goes great with about any main dish.  It truly is one of my favorite side dishes.  Not only do I think it is pretty but it tastes every bit as good as it smells.  It is light, fluffy, and delicious.

Super Easy Yellow Rice

1 c. long grain rice
1/4 c. butter
1 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground ginger

     Heat up the butter in a pot over medium heat.  Stir in the rice, garlic powder, and onions.  Cook and stir until the rice becomes light brown.

  Stir in the turmeric and then pour in the chicken broth, salt, pepper, and ginger and turn the heat to medium-high.  Bring the mixture to a boil and then turn it down to low and cover.  Allow it to simmer for about 25-30 minutes or until the rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed.  Remove from heat and fluff it with a fork before serving.  

     This is perfect like this but sometimes I like to bolster the flavor and nutrients by adding in a cup of frozen peas or frozen carrots.  It also adds some color and makes it even prettier.

      Freezes well and reheats beautifully.


     A half cup of prepared rice is a serving and there are 40 carbs per serving.
