This rich, gold and green Pistachio Turmeric Rice Power Bowl is vegan, and gluten-free—plus it’s bursting with flavor and nutrition.


  1. To Prepare Turmeric Rice: Heat olive oil in a medium pot. Add rice, ginger, garlic, turmeric, and black pepper and sauté for 2 minutes. Add water, vegetable bullion, and agave syrup. Stir well, cover, and cook over medium heat—stirring occasionally to prevent from sticking—for about 40 minutes, until just tender, but not mushy. Stir in lemon juice and remove from heat.
  2. To prepare 4 large bowls (about 3 cups size): Divide turmeric rice into each bowl (about 1/2 cup per serving). Divide and arrange the toppings among the bowls, as follows: 2 cups spinach, 1/3 cup chickpeas, 1/4 avocado, sliced, 2 tablespoons pistachios, and 2 tablespoons cranberries. Drizzle each bowl with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil and 1 teaspoon lemon juice.
  3. Serve immediately.


You can make this recipe into one large family-sized (8 serving) salad by tossing together all ingredients in step 2 in a large bowl.
