Tumeric Rice Custard in the Thermomix

3 Aug

It seems like everywhere I look lately someone is espousing the health benefits of Tumeric, after reading so many articles on why we should be eating Tumeric I thought I had better find a way to get it into Miss Three’s diet.

Easier said than done!

Miss Three is partial to a curry so I have been sneaking a dash into our curries, but I wanted to come up with something that highlighted its great flavour and would get Miss Three excited about eating Tumeric.

Remembering that my Mum always made our custard yellow with a dash of Tumeric, I decided to adapt that idea & create a yummy rice pudding that had a nice amount of Tumeric in it to ensure we are getting all of the health benefits of this amazing spice.

 

What health benefits you ask?

  • anti-inflammatory
  • increases the antioxidant capabilities of the body
  • lowers risk of heart disease
  • helpful in the prevention & treatment of cancer
  • helpful in the prevention of Alzheimers disease
  • found to be beneficial against depression

  • linked to improved brain function & lower risk of brain disease

Then get into your kitchen & whip up some Tumeric Rice Custard for your family. Its great served hot straight from your Thermomix or cold from the fridge for a snack.

This recipe is super easy to make, actually you really do nothing, your Thermomix does all the work, how good is that?

Tumeric Rice Custard a’la Mama Going Natural in the Thermomix

  • 60 gm butter
  • 1 c arborio rice
  • 4 c milk of your choice
  • 2 t vanilla essence
  • 1 t ground tumeric
  • 4 t coconut sugar
  • 1/4 c sultana’s

Place butter & rice in your Thermomix bowl with the butterfly/stirring attachment & stirring blades in place for 3 minutes at level 3 to brown off your rice.

Add all other ingredients & cook for 30 minutes at 90 degrees, level 1. Check your rice from time to time to see if it has cooked. My family like it a little squishy so you may want to check it at 25 minutes to ensure the rice is cooked to the way your family likes it.

Enjoy it hot or serve it cold, either way your family will love it & they will be getting a dose of goodness at the same time. Now thats a mummy win:win.

Enjoy
