Healthy Mediterranean Yellow Rice (Vegan, Gluten Free)

Transform your leftover rice with a burst of flavor from turmeric, fresh herbs and vegetables, and cashews for texture. 15 minutes, easy, vegan, and gluten-free!

I feel like I always have leftover rice lurking around in the fridge. Like EVERY single day! We eat a ton of rice on our homestead (basmati, jasmine, brown, arborio, wild, forbidden rice, sushi rice, etc) and eat it probably 3x times a week – usually along side our Perfect Crispy Baked Tofu!

I always like to make a little extra rice while I cook it as leftovers are easy to store and I don’t want to get stuck with notenough rice. I have a few other go-to recipes for leftover rice, including my Amazing Vegan Stuffed Pepper Soup!

This rice is great because it comes together really quickly and includes ingredients I always keep on hand. I love the color (and the health benefits) from the turmeric. Its such a beautiful ingredient to add that really boosts the flavor.

I love serving this rice along side our favorite Vegan Tofu Shwarma Pitas which pairs really nicely! It would also be great with Vegan BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Sandwiches 🙂
