Yellow Jasmine Rice
While jasmine rice is a rich source of B vitamins, here it gets a huge nutritional upgrade by adding fresh garlic and fresh turmeric. The result is a vibrantly hued yellow dish that is flavorful and nutritious. Both turmeric and garlic have been used medicinally for centuries and we are lucky that these two powerful foods also taste wonderful.
