Yellow rice... staple in Mexican restaurants. I love it but it is so not healthy. So I tweaked the recipe. Made it with brown rice and my own spices. And honestly.. It even better than the real things. Make it and no one will know its brown rice.

1tbsp of olive oil
1 medium onion - chopped very finely
2 cloves of garlic - chopped very finely
1 cup of brown rice. I like Uncle Ben's Whole grain brown rice that cooks in 10 minutes
1 3/4 cups of chicken stock
1 1/2 tsp of Adobo
2/3 tsp of tumeric
salt and pepper to taste

In a sauce pan, add olive oil, onions and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes, adding salt and pepper while it is cooking. Add brown rice to the pan, Stir to incorporate. Add chicken stock, Adobo and tumeric. Bring to a boil. Turn the heat down and let simmer for about 15 minutes.

Serves 3-4
