This warm turmeric rice is not only delicious and vibrant, but will fill your house with an amazing aroma. The color will be brighter if you use ground turmeric in this recipe and lighter in color if you use fresh turmeric root. Both ways are equally delicious! Along with it’s bright, golden aesthetic, turmeric also has anti-inflammatory properties.


I recently started the Fast Tract Diet to reduce my chronic acid reflux symptoms and have given up almost all grains and am currently sticking with foods that are easy to digest and that have little fermentation in the stomach. Since jasmine rice is an option with low fermentability, I like to cook it in a variety of ways to change up the flavor. And this variation did not disappoint. I would love to hear from you if give this recipe a try! Be sure to leave a comment below to let me know what you think and use the hashtag #thegerdchef if you share it on Instagram!
