easy stove-top turmeric rice #gluten-free #vegan

INGREDIENTS (2 – 3 servings):

  • 1 US cup long grain rice, I used jasmine rice
  • 1 US cup filtered water
  • 100g yellow onion, diced
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt


  1. Rinse rice in a medium sized sauce pan until water runs clear – approximately 3 to 4 rinses.
  2. Add turmeric powder and salt onto the rice. Mix until well incorporated.
  3. Add diced onion. Mix.
  4. Add 1 cup water. Mix. Bring water to a boil.
  5. Once water is boiling, simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  6. After 10 mins, turn heat off and let rice rest for another 5 mins.
  7. Use a fork to fluff the rice.
  8. Rice is now ready to serve.

Time saving tips:

  • You can freeze 1/2 or 1 cup portions of the cooled turmeric rice by placing it on cling wrap. The wrap it into a square. Be careful not to let the cling wrap go between the rice. Freeze it up to 3 months. Next time you feel like having turmeric rice, just unwrap the frozen rice and put it in a bowl. Cover with paper towel and microwave it for 1 minute
