Spinach & Pistachio Herb Rice (Gluten Free & Vegan)

I grew up with a Korean mom which translates to a 24-hour rice cooker on our kitchen counter throughout my childhood. Rice was a staple at EVERY meal. From Italian pasta to Texas bar-b-que, rice and kimchi would accompany all cuisines when dining with the Prikryls. Rice truly is comfort food to me, so it’s always fun to experiment with how to make it new and interesting. A friend of mine recently shared a Turkish Rice Pilaf with Spinach & Pistachio recipe with me that takes your tastebuds to a dream cloud. (click HERE for the link to that version) With so many family members and friends that have food allergies or are vegetarian, I’m always inspired to experiment with alternatives to traditional dishes that can fit every diet…a dish that everyone can dig into! My version of this Turkish side dish is gluten-free, vegan and uses brown rice. I like the extra texture and nuttiness that the brown rice adds to this crave-worthy dish. Enjoy!
