Grilled Tofu with Turmeric Brown Rice

Sometimes I feel bore with plain white rice, so always trying to add flavors with my rice bowl recipe like addition of lemon juice for flavor, addition of mint leaves or jeera tadka. But this time I tried vegetable broth plus turmeric powder. You can use fresh turmeric root also to get fresh and good flavors.

Turmeric root is Indian spice which used in every Indian kitchen. It’s good for stomach ailments and helps in reducing inflammation.

This time i prepared grilled tofu with turmeric brown rice and broccoli. I used marinated tofu with ginger chili paste, seasoning and soya sauce and grilled in pan with some butter.

Sometimes we need simple, healthy and tasty to cook and digest too. Overall you can say it’s totally comforting food. I made stir fry broccoli, brown rice cooked in vegetable broth and grilled tofu, served in one bowl with lemon juice and chili sauce.
