Turmeric is like the first cousin of my old pal ginger! Even if you’re not familiar with it, I guarantee you have probably eaten it, as it is one of the spices often used in curry powders. This vibrant root has a sort of mild peppery taste. It contains something called curcumin which is great at fighting inflammation, this is why turmeric has been used for thousands of years to fight disease.
- It comes in fresh or powdered form
- It is great in things like curries, soups, marinades (I love it with paprika on roast chicken and vegetables)
- You can even add a little to warm water and make a turmeric tea!
Let me know how you like your turmeric!
