Adapted from my good friend Brooke‘s recipe.

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 2/3 cup rice
  • 2 Tbsp. onion, minced or 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Bring water, salt, and butter to a boil in a medium-sized saucepan. In a separate bowl, combine the rice and all spices. Once the water is boiling, pour in the rice and spices, stirring constantly until it returns to a boil. Once in boils, turn down heat to very low, cover, and simmer for about 20 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit for 5 minutes, and serve.

This makes one dinner and one leftover lunch for our family, two adults and two preschool children. I suppose it probably serves 4 adults.
