Saffron Turmeric Rice

Serves 4-6
by Tenina Holder

Well hello yellow. Rice that is. A beautiful side dish with all the vibrancy of turmeric and of course some of the benefits as well, go and read all about the wonders of turmeric here. Add the saffron threads and it’s more than beautiful, you can be transported to Sri Lanka or somewhere equally exotic. Am I right? (I know...it’s just rice for crying out loud, but give me a break, I’m trying to make it exciting for you.)

This is the perfect accompaniment for any of my amazing curries. Go do a search and find one or three that screams your name and add this. Happy Happy days. Enjoy.
