In a nonstick pot, add the oil and adjust to medium heat. Once warm, add the minced garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant.
Add in the rice, coconut milk, vegetable broth, turmeric, onion powder, and sea salt. Increase heat and bring to a boil (uncovered).
Once boiling, reduce to a medium-low heat (simmering) and cover with a lid. Stir frequently to avoid sticking. Let cook for about 15-20 minutes or until all liquid is gone and rice is fluffy.
Fluff with a fork and garnish with fresh cilantro or parsley (optional). Enjoy!
