Explore Georgia: Tybee Island Tips No One Tells You About

BEST PLACE TO LAY DOWN YOUR TOWEL
Park near the Tybee Beach Beach and Pavilion (Tybrisa St, Tybee Island, GA 31328) use the bridge in front of the Tybee Island Marine Center turn right and walk towards the rock formation close to the sand dunes. This portion of the beach has a smoother sand, lots of shallow areas that are perfect for little kids to bathe safely, is less crowded, and because it's close to the sand dunes you will see a large variety of seaside birds.

Simple Meals: Tomato-Florentine Turmeric Rice



When you only have less than 20 minutes to make dinner what do you do? Rice and pork chops! 

Rice and pork chops is a popular dinner dish in Puerto Rico. They key to a 20 minute meal is to always try to make something ahead. In this case I had left-over rub that I saved and re-used it to season my pork chops. 

For the rice, really all is left to do is to sautee the onions, add the rest of the ingredients, then the broth and cover until the liquid is absorbed. Is really that simple ;)

Tomato-Florentine Turmeric Rice

11/2  Cups of rice (long grain)
2 Cups of Chopped Fresh Spinach
1/2 Cup Chopped Kalamata olives
1 Can of Diced Tomatoes (you can also use fresh tomatoes) 
1 Small Carrot ( coarsely grated)
1 Medium Onion diced
3 Minced Garlic cloves 
Chicken broth (don't ask me how much. I always eyeball it..)
2 Teaspoons Turmeric (if you want your rice less yellow use 1 teaspoon instead)
1 Teaspoon Red Chilli Powder (Optional)
1 Teaspoon Tomato paste 
1 Teaspoon Dried  oregano

In a sauté pan, heat 2 tbsp oil and sauté  onions until they turn translucent. Add a can of diced tomatoes, garlic, grated carrot, spinach, oregano, and tomato paste and cook on a medium flame for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add rice, turmeric, chili powder, salt and pepper, and sauté for a few more minutes until everything is blended. 

Add the chicken broth and reduce the heat, cover, and cook for 20-30 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed.

  1. The glaze on those chops looks delicious. Great, fast dinner! It's always nice to get in and out of the kitchen during the summer.

  2. Dominicans love pork chops and rice too and your take here looks awesome! I would have never thought to add Turmeric to color the rice. I bet it added some amazing flavor to it.
