Turmeric Vegetable Fried Rice

We’re taking a spin on the traditional fried rice with this Turmeric Vegetable Fried Rice! 

We added turmeric for an extra anti-inflammatory kick. It also makes the rice look really pretty and yellow. Turmeric is a multi-purpose spice. It’s rich in curcumin, which has been shown to have anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial effects. Turmeric also has powerful antioxidant properties, which can help fight cancer-causing free radicals. In India, it is commonly used for treating a variety of skin ailments, including acne, eczema, and rosacea.This flavorful spice is incredibly affordable! It also lasts for long periods of time in the food pantry.

Let’s get this one going. When cooking your brown rice, add 1/2 tablespoon of turmeric and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the boiling water, and cook as per package instructions. Set aside once done. In a large pan, heat the sesame oil, and add the onions. Sauté for 1-2 minutes over medium heat. Add in the eggs, and scramble for 1-2 minutes. Then add in the mixed vegetables, cooked turmeric rice, cabbage, and the soy or tamari sauce

Cook over low heat for 4-5 minutes. Turn off the heat, and mix in the sprouts. Add salt, to taste, and top with scallions and toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy!
 
For the mixed vegetables, we got the frozen pack of green beans, carrots, corn, and peas. You can get any frozen vegetable mix you enjoy though! How do you spice up your fried rice? What do you think of our Turmeric Vegetable Fried Rice? Let us know in the comments below!
