    Marina J.'s Note:

    I'm a lazy cook so when I had a craving for my grandmother's yellow rice, I figured out a recipe that would taste the same and be simple. Amounts and ingredients can be changed according to your tastes and it keeps well too! This is a kind of spanish rice that my Domincan grandmother makes, using tumeric instead of saffron to give the rice its color, with peas, shallot/onion, and garlic.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oil in a medium saucepan on medium-high heat.
    2. 2
      Add the shallots and garlic and cook until they start to brown, around 2-3 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add rice, broth, tumeric, and salt. Add frozen peas; I usually add enough to cover the surface of the broth (you can gauge this by adding them little by litte, they usually float to the top). Bring to a boil; this may take a few minutes.
    4. 4
      Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender and liquid is absorbed, this takes anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes depending on tastes and your stove!
    5. 5
      Sprinkle with fresh cilantro for a little extra flavor.

      Ok so you are looking for yellow rice recipes quit while you are ahead! This came out spot on perfect despite what my bag of rice told me how to cook it I did it this way and it was sublime. Made a few changes..... added extra onion, went with 1 garlic clove, a sprinkle of fresh cilantro and fresh dill weed, tiny bit of black pepper, 3 pinches of curry powder, sounds weird but a pinch of meat tenderizer powder and a pinch of Goya Ham flavored concentrate (makes it taste like meat while there is none).
