Recipe by RedWonder

This is a nice alternative to traditional paella for those who don’t like seafood. Very quick and simple with most ingredients likely to be on-hand.

Made this last night and we all really enjoyed it. I love the addition of turmeric, giving it a beautiful golden colour! I actually added a can of chopped tomatoes, because we do like tomato, and I didn't finish it off in the oven, I just covered it and allowed it to cook at a low heat on the stove top, until rice was cooked and liquid absorbed. otherwise, just as directed. A great one dish meal :) On the side, I served Recipe #126482, also by RedWonder, thank you for a lovely supper! made for PAC Fall 2008
