Ways to Use Organic Turmeric in Your Cooking August 26 2015

How do you take your turmeric? If you have to ask what turmeric even is, then you are missing out. If you are a fan of Indian food, you are probably getting more turmeric in your diet than you were aware; and that's a good thing. The health benefits inherent to the turmeric root are just now getting attention from medical studies in the West, but other cultures have long been privy to its disease preventing properties for centuries.Tasty, savory and chock full of healthy benefits, organic turmeric can be added to your daily diet in a variety of ways. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • In a nice hot cup of tea. Added to warm tea with a bit of honey and a splash of milk, turmeric adds comfort to your evening cup.
  • Mixed in with a couple of eggs. Whether you prefer them scrambled, fried or in a frittata or skillet, turn up the interest and flavor with a dash or two of the golden season.
  • Instead of salt on your rice. As a blank slate, white rice is flavored up nicely when turmeric is added to the pot. It also looks so much prettier sitting colorfully on your dinner plate.
  • As veggie's best friend. Roasted veggies are complemented nicely by the warm, earthy tastes that turmeric delivers. Kale, cabbage, and collard greens also pair nicely when sauteed with turmeric.
  • Languishing in a bowl of soup. Mom's chicken noodle was never so flavorful or packed with nutritional goodness as it is when turmeric is added to the broth. No need to be sick to indulge in this comfort food.
