Turmeric Rice

I don’t know about you but color make me happy. I love “eating my colors” and this vibrant yellow rice makes me giddy – not just because of its beautiful hue but because I know that adding antioxidant packed turmeric make this rice more nutritious for us. I served this along side some green beans and barbecued shredded pork which made for a colorful culinary palette.
