Turmeric Puffed Rice Bars - Right 4 All Blood Types

Used in cooking for thousands of years, turmeric is the root of a tropical plant in the same family as ginger. Though native to South Asia, particularly India, this spice is now cultivated throughout Asia and the Caribbean as well. It has an earthy, slightly bitter flavor and an intense yellow-orange color. Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant and a great addition to these simple puffed rice bars. Reminiscent of childhood treats, these puffed rice bars make for a fun snack that are still healthy and guilt-free!

[ Serves 4-6 people ]
