This savory basmati rice recipe makes a nutritious and delicious base for any meal, warming you up and nourishing your body at the same time!



1 Tbsp olive oil

1 small onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 1/2 c basmati rice

1 tsp turmeric

3/4 tsp salt

2 c broth (I use chicken bone broth but vegetable will work well here, too)

1/4 c water


In a skillet, heat 1 Tbsp of oil over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 3-5 minutes until soft and translucent. Add the garlic and sauté for another minute until fragrant.

While the onion cooks, rinse the rice once or twice to remove excess surface starch.

In the rice cooker, add the onion and garlic, rinsed rice, turmeric, salt, broth, and water. Give it a good stir.

Set the rice cooker to “rice” setting and hit go. Mine takes about 25 minutes to fully cook.

Once done, adjust salt seasoning as needed and enjoy!
