This was a hit with my picky eaters. I added a pound of ground turkey and served it as a main course.

This is a great change from plain old rice and so easy to make. The colour is wonderful, as is the flavour. I used a little more broth for softer, almost saucy, rice. Thank you, Jezebel

I made this when I wanted a colorful rice to go with chicken, and it did not disappoint. Very good flavor from the Italian seasoning and turmeric. The peas are a good addition; we really enjoyed this.
