Instructions
  1. For this recipe you will need a large bowl and a microwave. If you do not like microwaves you can always cook this rice on your stove or in a rice cooker.
  2. First pour the rice into your bowl and wash repeatedly until most of the starch is removed.
  3. Now pour the vegetable stock over the top and add the tumeric powder.
  4. Mix up the turmeric with the stock and then place the bowl in your microwave for approximately 12 minutes. My microwave is 1100W, so you may have to adjust your time if your microwave has more or less power.
  5. After 12 minutes all the stock should be absorbed into the rice leaving puffy grains. If it is not quite there try giving it a stir then let it sit for a few minutes.
  6. Serve and sprinkle with sumac, herbs and pinenuts.

      A spice.The sumac bush, native to the Middle East, produces deep red berries, which are dried and ground into coarse powder. … While it’s less common, the berries may also be sold whole. Ground sumac is a versatile spice with a tangy lemony flavor, although more balanced and less tart than lemon juice.
