Golden Turmeric Ginger Coconut Rice

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups water
  • 4 Tadin Organic Turmeric Ginger tea bags
  • 1 ¾ cups long-grain white rice
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp Tadin ground turmeric
  • 1 ½ tbsp unrefined coconut oil
  • fresh herbs

Instructions:

  1. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add 4 Tadin Organic Turmeric Ginger tea bags to large mug, pour boiling water, cover and steep for 5 min. While tea steeps, place rice in a fine mesh strainer and wash it for several minutes until water runs mostly clear.
  2. Add rice to medium saucepan. Once tea has finished steeping, remove bags and pour brewed tea into pot. Stir in ground turmeric and salt. Bring to a boil, and stir for 2 min. Cover, turn the heat to low, and cook for 10 min (brew yourself a cup of tea while you wait).
  3. Turn off heat (but don’t remove it from the stove), and let rice sit for 10 min. Afterwards, add coconut oil, and fluff with a fork to mix it in. Cover the pot, and let it sit for a final 10 min. Fluff the rice a final time, taste for salt, spoon into a serving bowl and top with your favorite fresh herbs. Serve while warm.

Note: Try topping your rice with cilantro, basil, or chives!
