“Tumeric is used along with dried apricots and cranberries giving this rice dish a slightly sweet taste. It was published in my local newspaper and is it's suggested that it be served with Asian Citrus Marinated Salmon and (steamed asparagus with) Citrus Sauce- I am also publishing those recipes.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan bring broth to a boil (use the amount of broth or water stated on the package of rice), stir in rice and tumeric; When mixture comes to a boil again, reduce heat and simmer about 10 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
  2. While rice is cooking, place dried fruits in a small bowl, add hot (but not boiling) water to cover; Let soak for 5-10 minutes or until soft; Drain well.
  3. Remove rice from heat and stir in dried fruits; Cover and let stand 2-5 minutes; Lightly fluff with a fork and serve.
  4. Note: Regular brown rice can also be used- To reduce the usual cooking time use an appropriate amount of rice and liquid; Cook at a low boil (not a simmer) until rice is tender, about 30 minutes; Drain away any remaining liquid.
