Rice is one of those things that can be made in a million different ways. Sometimes, I get tired of plain old white rice and am looking for something a little more interesting. That’s when Latin Yellow Rice comes into play! With just a few basic ingredients, it’s easy to make this flavorful side dish with yellow rice, green onions, and more. The best part? It takes less than an hour from start to finish!
Latin Yellow Rice
- 1 tbsp salt
- 1 tbsp ground turmeric
- 2 cups uncooked long-grain rice
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 3 cloves garlic
- 4 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
Salt is a flavor enhancer. It adds savoriness and complexity to food, and it’s also necessary to cure meat (like ham), preserve food, make bread dough rise, etc.
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
Turmeric is a yellow spice that has a mild taste. It’s often used in Indian cooking, but it’s also used to make curry powder. Turmeric contains the active ingredient curcumin, which is thought to have anti-inflammatory properties and may help protect against cancer and heart disease.
Turmeric is a good source of vitamin B6 and manganese.
2 cups uncooked long-grain rice
2 cups uncooked long-grain rice
- To measure uncooked rice, use a dry measuring cup to scoop the desired amount into a separate bowl.
- Rice will cook in about 20 minutes, but it’s important to check the doneness of your rice at 15 minutes to prevent overcooking. When you think your rice is done cooking (it should be fluffy and soft), remove it from heat and let it sit for about 5 minutes before serving. This resting period allows excess moisture to evaporate off so that when you fluff with a fork or spoons, your grains are separate rather than clumpy or wet.
1 cup chopped onion (about 1 medium)
Chop your onion. Make sure you’ve got a good knife and strong cutting board, or else you might cry.
What size of onion do I use?
I like to use about 1/2 cup chopped onion because it’s enough to add flavor without overpowering the dish, but if you’re making this for an army (and who isn’t?), double the recipe! The beauty of cooking is that it’s as simple or as complicated as you want it to be.
Why are onions good for me?
Onions have been shown in studies to have antibacterial properties, which means they can help fight off infections and illness caused by bacteria such as colds or stomach bugs! They also contain folate so they are great sources of antioxidants too—keep those free radicals away from our cells with some tasty yellow rice today!
3 cloves garlic, minced
Mincing garlic is easy to do. First, you need to peel the clove of garlic. I like to use a garlic press (I’m sure there are other ways), but if you don’t have one, just use your knife to chop the clove into small pieces instead.
You can also mince them on their own and then stir it in with everything else, but it’s more time-consuming than using a press or knife directly into whatever dish you’re making—and pressing makes them easier for people at the table who might not want as much garlic in their food!
For example: If I am making 3 cloves of minced garlic for Asian Sweet Chili Chicken Wings, I will dice up 3 cloves using my press first and then add them directly into my frying pan with oil and other ingredients so they are cooked thoroughly without burning while being cooked evenly throughout without having any burnt bits remaining afterwards which could stain clothing or ruin dishes if not cleaned properly before serving again later on down down under!
4 cups chicken broth
Chicken broth is also a great way to add flavor to rice. It’s basically liquid that you make from boiling chicken or other meats, and it is super healthy for you.
- Broth is made by simmering meat, fish or vegetables in water with herbs and spices. The resulting liquid can be used as a soup base or poured over rice.* Broth contains protein and minerals like calcium, which are important for healthy bones and teeth.* The salt content in broth helps balance blood sugar levels so your body doesn’t have spikes after eating.* Broth may help prevent inflammation in those who have heart disease or diabetes
Even though it’s not as popular as plain rice or rice pilaf, Latin Yellow Rice is a delicious side dish.
Latin Yellow Rice is a delicious side dish that pairs well with chicken and fish. It also goes great with black beans or pinto beans, and can be served with a salad or steamed vegetables.
