This fragrant turmeric rice bowl topped with leftover spiced roasted root vegetables and chickpeas is inspired by flavors from India for an easy, vegetarian dinner.

Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare rice: Combine water, rice, raisins, olive oil, onion powder (or garlic powder), turmeric, cinnamon, pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook until the liquid is absorbed, 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, to prepare vegetables & chickpeas: Heat coconut oil (or ghee) in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add chickpeas and cook, stirring, until crispy, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in garam masala (or curry powder) and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add roasted root vegetables, sugar (or honey), salt and pepper; cook, stirring often, until heated through, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in lemon juice.

  • Serve the vegetable mixture over the rice, topped with yogurt (or tahini). Garnish with herbs, if desired.

This was delicious. The (teen) children thought it needed more moisture or more heat. If you like it spicy, certainly add more spice than called for. For the sheet pan veggies we used parsnip, carrot, red onion, sweet potato. Adding a green veggie (like green beans) would be visually appealing. Read More

This dish was seriously good! The rice was absolutely perfectly flavored and the root vegetables were very good. Note: The root vegetable recipe makes about 3 cups of vegetables while this recipe requires 1 cup. I ended up making half a recipe of the root vegetables and a single recipe of this dish so the ratio of root vegetables was very slightly higher but still not a bad ratio. Read More

We did not enjoy this recipe at all. We found it very dry and, even with adding some extra spices it was very bland. Sorry, we love veggies but this one recipe, no thanks. Read More
