Ingredients

2 teaspoons coconut oil

1/2 cup finely diced onions 

1 cup short-grain brown rice 

1/4 cup golden raisins 

1 teaspoon grated fresh turmeric

2 cloves garlic, grated 

2 1/2 cups vegetable stock or water

Salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Heat a medium saucepan to medium heat. Once heated, add the oil and allow to heat up. Once the oil is heated, add the onions and saute until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the rice, raisins, turmeric and garlic. Toss to coat. Saute gently until you smell a nutty aroma, about 2 minutes, and then add the stock. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce the heat to low. Cook until the rice is tender, about 45 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to steam for 5 minutes prior to removing the lid. Season with salt and pepper, and fluff with a fork before serving.

Cook’s Note

If you can't find fresh turmeric use dried, but cut the amount back to 1/4 teaspoon.
