Savory Yellow Rice

Savory Yellow Rice Recipe

This aromatic Jasmine rice dish gets its vibrant color from antioxidant-rich turmeric.


  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 cups Cajun Country Jasmine Rice, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 tsp salt, (more or less to taste)
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • Cilantro for garnish


  • Add butter to a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  • Once melted, add onion and sauté for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add rice, salt, turmeric, and garlic powder and cook for 1 additional minute, stirring occasionally.
  • Add chicken broth. Turn heat up and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to low, add lid and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit with the lid on for 8-10 minutes, or until rice is fully cooked. Fluff with a fork and serve.


For rice with a more al dente texture, use 2½ – 2¾ cups broth instead of 3.
