Have you ever had yellow rice?
Not only is it delicious, but kids like to eat it because the colour is so incredibly vibrant. I love to serve a rainbow of foods to my kids and this certainly pops right off the plate.
What makes it yellow? Well, in many different cultures, there are herbs and spices that can make rice yellow. It can also be turned yellow by chemical food colourings or powders added to the rice.
My version is all natural and you can use any type of rice. I always recommend brown rice, as it is a whole grain, but you can use any leftover rice you have-a great option once you’ve ordered in and don’t know what to do with all the rice sitting in your fridge.
This rice is a big hit with everyone! It’s so vibrant in colour and tastes great. Feel free to spice it up with some chili flakes if you like some heat.
Over medium heat, cook onions, squash and pepper until soft
Add tumeric, curry powder, and chili flakes (if using). Stir, and cook another minute
Add rice, broth, corn, and saffron. Stir and simmer until broth is absorbed
Taste. Add salt and pepper to your liking.
Serve with other brightly coloured foods to make a rainbow dinner! My favourites are stuffed red peppers or a bright green spinach salad. Enjoy!
