"This is my husband's favorite rice. It took me awhile to finally come up with this version. One can add chicken, tuna, ham, etc., to make it a one dish meal. It is also great for rice patties. The vinegar is traditional in rice in Spain; it keeps the rice fluffy."

apple cider vinegar
long grain white rice
frozen peas and carrots, thawed
I am the author of this recipe. The only thing I ever measure is the water and rice so I had to more or less guess on the quantities to get this recipe on paper. I was using white vinegar and then switched to apple cider vinegar because it was on the counter. They are both good. I suggest you bring the peas and carrots to room temperature.
The combination of turmeric and apple cider vinegar made this very sour and bitter. I added shredded monterey jack which helped a little, but I wouldn't make this again.
This rice was fluffy as promised. Here is what I discovered after I made this. Turmeric although good for you is very bitter. Too bitter for us in fact. I looked up how to counteract that and ended up adding an equal amount of chili powder to the rice. I'm giving it 4 stars because it is a nice rice and not the submitter's fault that we ended up not being turmeric lovers. I do think with my change I would give it 5 stars. I only had frozen peas so that's what we used. I will make this one again. Thanks for sharing Mariposa
This is our new favorite way to prepare rice! It's so easy and flavorful! I prepared this recipe with a few changes: 1. I used brown rice instead of white, so I cooked it for 45 minutes; 2. I used champagne vinegar (because that's all I had on hand) instead of apple cider vinegar; 3. I didn't add the peas/carrots.
Used vegetable broth instead of water
Otherwise made it as is and enjoyed it
Turmeric is a new spice to me that I was interested in using for our everyday cooking - this rice has been a hit with my family and the color is amazing. I took the advise of other reviews and only used 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and 1 teaspoon of turmeric and it was perfect for our tastes - enjoy !!
