Valenciana/Mellow Yellow Monday


A bowl of Arroz ala Valenciana  my brother cooked.   The glutinous rice turned yellow from turmeric.  Looks good, right?  It tasted even better.:p

Arroz ala Valenciana is a Spanish dish popular in the Philippines.  The dish consists of glutinous rice cooked in turmeric; the rest of the ingredients such as chicken, Chorizo de Bilbao, pork, chicken liver, green peas or garbanzos are sauteed in garlic and onion.  Garnish with bell pepper and raisins.

That food looks delicious!! My daughter-in-law, Joy, is from the Philippines! I'm sure she knows this dish! I'm gonna ask her to make it for us! :)

We all love Joy. She and my son just had a baby boy less than a month ago!
He's precious and beautiful! (My 5th grandchild-but my other 4 are grown now- so this baby is something very special to us!)

Looks delicious. Turmeric is supposed to be very healthful.
