Superfood Turmeric Rice

The rice is right! (I couldn’t resist!) For Turmeric Tuesday, I made this dish using Jasmine rice. Make sure to choose brown or whole-grain basmati and jasmine rice when possible. They have more protein and fiber than white rice. Give them a try! Although if you truly love white rice that’s ok too when using proper portions. Fun fact: make sure you add black pepper to your dishes made with turmeric: it aids in improved absorption of turmeric, thus more antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits! Pair this dish with a lean protein and some veggies and you’ve got a complete meal! Plus this seasoning and flavor combo is so fun and different.


  • 1 cup of jasmine rice
  • 1 1/2 cups of vegetable stock or water
  • 2 teaspoons of powdered turmeric
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
  • Fresh herbs. I use parsley, basil, oregano and dill
  • 1/4 cup of roughly chopped almonds
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Combine the rice, turmeric, salt, pepper, cumin and vegetable stock/ water in a pot. Bring to a boil. Cook rice as directed on package (cooking time will vary based on what rice is used).
  2. Once rice is cooked, mixed in fresh chopped herbs and stir in lime juice and chopped almonds.
  3. Top with almonds, fresh herbs and salt/pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy!
