Indian-style Veggie Brown Rice

Jeanne Collins


Turmeric is an amazing ingredient. It is an excellent anti-inflammatory, a natural antiseptic, liver cleanse, and many more uses. I asked my Indian friend at work for some Turmeric recipes and her answer was "everything I cook"! She then gave me this easy recipe for rice. I've listed the recipe with the veggies I used, but you can use whatever you like! When I make it, I'll use whatever I have in the fridge that needs using up.
