Turmeric is a yellow spice, which is also in curry powder. In fact, it gives curry powder its yellow taste. It is also very healthy.
Turmeric is a popular spice in Indian cooking. If you ever buy yellow rice, you will often see turmeric on the list of ingredients. Turmeric isn’t just great for its taste, it’s also an extremely powerful spice. Many studies show that turmeric can prevent cancer ¹, ². The books by David Serban-Schreiber, Joel Furhman, David Khayat and Richard Béliveau praise turmeric in their books and write about its powerful anti-cancer effect. David Khayat writes that turmeric can make cancer cells commit suicide and can make certain cancer treatments more effective. How much turmeric a day is best? Richard Béliveau recommends we add one teaspoon of turmeric powder to our meals each day.
There are many ways to use turmeric. You can stir it through a soup, use it in a salad dressing or a pasta sauce. You can even make turmeric milk! I love to add it to oven-baked potatoes, along with bell pepper powder, garlic powder and onion powder. I also like mixing turmeric through cooked rice or sautéed broccoli. A while ago I posed a recipe for mashed cauliflower, which also tastes great with some turmeric. The possibilities are endless! I highly recommend it, seeing as the health benefits are believed to be significant. It surely can’t hurt. I make sure I always have some turmeric powder in my kitchen cupboard.
