Turkey, Asparagus & Golden Rice Bowls
with Peas, Red Onion & Pistachio-Parsley Chimichurri
This loaded vegan rice bowl is one hearty flavor bomb of a meal! You’ll whip up a bed of fluffy golden turmeric rice with chewy golden raisins, then top it with a vibrant, garlicky mix of sautéed asparagus, red onion, and sweet peas. It’s all drizzled with a zingy, herbaceous homemade pistachio and parsley chimichurri that complements the whole dish beautifully.

• Wash and dry produce. • Mince garlic. • Heat a drizzle of oil in a small pot over medium-high heat. Add half the minced garlic and half the turmeric (all for 4 servings). Cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 30-60 seconds. • Add rice, stock concentrate, 1¼ cups water (2¼ cups for 4), and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil then reduce to a low simmer. Cover and cook until tender, 15-18 minutes. • Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.
• While rice cooks, mince parsley. Roughly chop pistachios. Trim and discard woody bottom ends from asparagus; cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Halve, peel, and thinly slice half the onion (whole onion for 4 servings). • In a small bowl, combine parsley, pistachios, garlic powder, 1 tsp vinegar (2 tsp for 4), 2½ TBSP olive oil (5 TBSP for 4) salt, and pepper. TIP: Add a little more vinegar if you prefer a tangier chimichurri.
