We have now been forever spoiled by Turmeric Rice. This is a great side dish to your main dish, plus you can make it year round! Once you go Turmeric you never go back. We have also subbed rice with cauliflower rice and it is just as delicious if you are not a grain eater!
Author Ralph Lazaro ∙ Prepare 15 mins ∙ Cook 18 mins ∙ Servings 3-5
- 4 TBSP Olive Oil
- 2 TBSP Grass-fed Butter
- 1/2 Yellow Onion
- 1 Garlic Clove minced
- 1 TBSP Turmeric
- 1 Cup Organic Non-GMO rice or Cauliflower Rice
- 1 Bay Leaf
- 2 Cups of Water
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- In a large saucepan heat up 2-3 tbsp of olive oil and 1 tbsp of butter on Medium heat.
- Add 1/2 onion and let it cook until translucent (3-5 minutes) then add minced garlic and cook 2-3 more minutes
- Add in Turmeric, Rice, 2 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp butter, and 1/2 tsp salt. Blend all of these ingredients together until rice is covered with turmeric (yellow)
- Add 2 cups of water and 1 Bay Leaf and stir again, turn the heat up to high and bring rice to a boil. Once it begins to boil, stir it, turn the heat to low, and cover it with a lid and let it continue to cook on low for 18 minutes. Check on your rice during this time and stir it every few minutes to make sure it is not sticking to the bottom of the pan. If it looks dry and you still have time left for it to cook, add a little water and a drizzle of olive oil to keep it moist (worst word ever).
- Serve and MANGIA!
- IF you are subbing regular rice with cauliflower rice you will obviously omit the water and double the amount of rice you put into the sauce pan. You will not need to cook it as long, it will be more of a saute.

We have been playing around with some type of healthy energy/snack bar for a while, but it was important for us to find something that didn't have any sugar added...most importantly that the berries/fruit didn't have sugar...it took a friend sharing a Paleo cookie recipe with us that inspired us to tweak and make it into bars and next thing you know the "nuts and bolts" bar was born. This is a great bar to eat pre-workout, as a healthy snack during the day or even as a dessert. Enjoy!Read More
If you know us, you know we love Cappellos and everything they create. We especially love their lasagna sheets...and have been known to cut them into chip size pieces and bake them (to dip in stuff). One day we thought to ourselves, "what else could we take these sheets of joy and turn them into?"...then it hit us - "MINI PIES"! Thus was born our wee peach pie recipe. Enjoy!Read More

Turmeric also helps fight body wide infection, supports joint and heart health.. the list goes on and on.

We love ranch dressing...I repeat WE LOVE RANCH DRESSING! But, the ranch dressing found in stores, on salad bars and served in restaurants is filled with junk oils, preservatives and other random ingredients...remember, if you aren't sure what an ingredient actually is you shouldn't eat it. As you can see below this recipe is a small number of whole/simple ingredients. We use this with our Paleo Buffalo Wings, as a dip for veggies and more. And you can store it in the fridge for up to 2 weeks...that is if you don't use it all before then ;) Enjoy!Read More

Beth Anne woke up this morning demanding a dill aioli, because we got fresh dill in our weekly CSA bag. And of course, by the end of the day we were enjoying a delicious garlic and dill aioli on a grass fed short rib burger (pic below). The recipe was so simple and uses our paleo mayo as the base. Try this aioli on salmon or fish, burgers, for dipping veggies, with sweet potato or yuka fries...it is pretty much good on everything.Read More
