Annatto Rice Premium PD Recipe

Annato Rice - ©

Annatto is a popular spice used in Central and South America. It complements dishes with its beautiful rich deep orange color, mild flavor and protective carotenoids specifically called Bixins. These powerful antioxidants protect eyes from cataracts and blindness, defending the body from free radicals. This spice is also commonly used by natural cosmetic companies. I used it to add body and richness to this Caribbean and South American inspired rice dish that is complete with stovetop or pressure-cooking instructions. Enjoy it as a main dish or serve it on the side with Protective Diet Chorizo Tacos.

    I’m assuming that I set my IP to “sauté” where it says to set it to brown?

    i just love the annatto rice, it reminds me of the Spanish rice in the Near East box i used to eat all the time. this dish will become a staple for me.

    Can I just omit the annatto seed or substitute something else? Thanks

      You can, but it won’t have the flavor or texture that ground annatto offers. If you can’t be bothered with adding a new spice to your kitchen try the Spanish Rice recipe.

      The cook time and liquid will be much less. Quinoa takes much less time and liquid to cook.
