Coriander Rice

I never knew rice could be this good.  I never knew rice could be so beautiful, put a song on your lips and a zip in your do-da!  I mean I'm from New Orleans and I know all about rice and this is the deal plus a bag of doughnuts!

1/4 cup olive oil
3/4 cup minced shallots (about 4 shallots)
1-1/2 tablespoons ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
2-1/4 cups extra long grain white rice
4-1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley

Heat oil in a heavy pot over medium heat.  Add shallots ans saute until soft, about 4 to 5 minutes.  Add in coriander and turmeric   Stir to combine and cook for 1 more minute.  Add in rice and toss to coat.  Add broth and salt and bring to a boil.  Cover, reduce heat to low and cook for 20 minutes.  Transfer to a bowl and garnish with parsley and serve.

So simple.  Enjoy everyone!
