Baobab & Turmeric Rice recipe

Updated: Oct 24, 2020

You might think that baobab powder only tastes delicious in smoothies, juices, porridge desserts... Wrong! Its citrusy flavour is perfect for savoury dishes too.


In West African cuisine, baobab powder is commonly used for its healing properties, but also as a spice to add a lovely zingy flavour to dishes.


We sometimes add it to rice together with turmeric for a tasty, colourful and nutritious meal.


Here is a delicious recipe for you to enjoy with the rest of the family.


Baobab & Turmeric Rice served with vegetable stew and plantains
