Turmeric Tahini Rice Recipe

gluten free turmeric rice recipe

It’s pretty obvious now how obsessed I am with all Maya Kaimal products & their new rice packets are no exception. Whether you choose the plain or turmeric & cumin, you’re going to love these rices. As always with any Maya Kaimal product, their ingredients are super clean (only 6 ingredients in this rice!) & loaded with nutrients (this rice has 7% of your daily needs for fiber & 8% for iron). I paired this rice with some fresh produce, spinach, garlic & onion, as well as a simple tahini sauce to balance out the incredible spices. It’s such an easy meal & does really well prepped ahead of time.
