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.
Local, organic, non-gmo corn is a crowd favorite at our house, it is the perfect side to any barbecue dinners. All of the spices and ingredients that make this corn so delicious are probably already in your spice cabinet. You are really going to like this!Read More
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
This recipe is so easy a baby could do it... legit, can't mess it up. We just love the flavor combinations and any time we have an excuse to use Turmeric we are IN! Do you know the benefits of turmeric?! It is anti-inflammatory brain medicine that has been said to keep alzheimer's at away. Turmeric also helps fight body wide infection, supports joint and heart health.. the list goes on and on. Do yourself a favor and sprinkle a little turmeric in on and around everything you eat today!Read More
We French Press our coffee every morning and we usually do 8 cups, so this recipe is enough for 2 buttered almond LA LA latte's. If you are making this for one, just half everything!Read More
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
For the longest time I just cut out mayo all together as even all of the "healthy" options in the store were processed with crap ingerdients. Enter this paleo mayo recipe. It is so easy to make and takes about 5 mins...all you need is a wide mouth ball jar and an immersion blender. Use this mayo as the base for dipping sauces, aioli, on burgers (lettuce bun of course) and so much more. Enjoy!Read More
We love sharing what inspires us with you! A friend of ours is a ridiculous cook who is always experimenting and trying new things to keep her fit family on track. Our core values align on all fronts, and Leezah has so much yumminess to share with all of you, this is only the beginning. You are welcome! Here is a creamsicle recipe that she created using amazing ingredients.Read More
This is honestly a fun way to get your protein and lunch in. I love plantains and the texture they have, not matter how we cook them. Here is yet another way you can cook them.Read More
Need something new to bring to a get together? Sick of spending $8 on a jar of salsa you don't even really like? This is our favorite salsa, it keeps well in the freezer so you can save some and have it again in a few weeks.Read More
Want to add a little sweet and spice to your life? Here ya go! We love sweet potatoes in this house and decided to add a little something extra... BACON. Try it, you will thank us later!Read More
Have you ever made something and brought it to a party and everyone says "how did you make that"...this guacamole is "that" guacamole. So now you can say, you got it from this website and send them here (shameless plug). This guac is so simple and easy to make and so fresh and yummy...we put this on just about everything and sometimes even eat it straight up. Enjoy!Read More
Cauliflower rice has become a staple in our house...why have we not always done cauliflower like this?? We use many variations of this rice recipe...once you get the hang of cooking it you can season it to match whatever you are serving it with...or use it for other recipes like with a stir fry, under a fried egg with avocado on top, pour soup over top of it or just trick your kids into slamming down some cauliflower (they will think it is rice)!Read More
A lot of people think about eating clean as a "burden" or something that takes away all the good stuff. This recipe directly defies that notion...it has all the taste of those dirty foods, but is a clean and healthy snack. Something about football being on TV that causes us to make these...and we generally deliver on the urge. The interesting thing about them is how simple they are and how few the ingredients are...we have tried making buffalo wings with all kinds of crazy recipes and complicated ingredients, but good old Frank's Red Hot sauce seems to be the one that delivers best (and the ingredients are good to go)...we keep it Paleo by using Coconut oil. Thanks to Dianne "Meme" Morgan for inspiring this recipe!Read More
We've gotten really into plantains lately so this is the first of a few great recipes with them. A close friend of ours, Brittany Gonzalez, who owns La Banana Frita has inspired us with her amazing uses of plantains...if you live anywhere near CLE make sure to check her out. One of our favorite plantain dishes is hash browns...they are so quick and easy to make and you can serve with breakfast, lunch or dinner (or as a snack). For this recipe we kept it super simple, but feel free to try different spice/flavor combos to your liking.Read More
These biscuits are called "buttery" because a) they taste like butter and b) they have a lot of butter in them...both of which is a good thing. Obviously, like all things RALABALA, they are gluten-free.
A close friend of ours, Leezah Pratt, shared a version of this recipe with me a while back...I have been tweaking it to get it just the way I like and it's time now to share this with you...and now it's your turn to enjoy and share with your friends!Read More
Sweet potatoes are full of vitamins and minerals, they are a great source of energy, and a carbohydrate that your body uses! Sweet potatoes aid in recovery and cell reproduction, these are the good potatoes, they are good carbs. They also go with everything... breakfast lunch and dinner wise. When we eat them for dinner one night, we will most likely heat them up in a skillet the following day with eggs. They are delicious no matter what... this is the way we LOVE our sweet potatoes!Read More
