TURMERIC PUMPKIN SEEDS FORTIFIED RICE

TURMERIC PUMPKIN SEEDS FORTIFIED RICE

This is a very simple and colorful version of rice. It makes a perfect companion to a nice protein of your choice. What I like about making simple dishes colorful and rich in tastes and textures is the variety. If your food is boring then eating so called healthy, home-cooked meals might pose a challenge. This recipe may be inspiration for making simple foods more interesting and taste-buds appealing. Let’s get changing Foodies!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Jasmine or Basmati rice
  • 1/2 cup vegetable stock
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, cut into smaller bites
  • 2 tablespoons raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Pinch of ground red paprika
  • Jug of olive oil
  • Salt

Prep Instructions

  1. In a skillet heat up a jug of olive oil then add the rice, pumpkin seeds, turmeric powder and a pinch of salt. Fry for 2-3 minutes on high heat mixing frequently. Make sure you do not burn it hence the mixing is very important.
  2. Add vegetable stock and mix well with the fried rice, cover with a lid and lower heat to low. Cook for 5 minutes without uncovering the lid.
  3. After initial 5 minutes uncover the lid, add chopped bell pepper and mix well. Cover for additional 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer the cooked rice to a separate bowl to make sure it does not overcook.
  5. Serve with your preferred lean protein on the side. Sprinkle it with ground red paprika. Makes a perfect post-workout meal.
