Turmeric Tips

Turmeric is one of the very healing foods on the planet.

Try using using fresh turmeric in one of these seven tasty ways:

    Like ginger, after peeling and grating turmeric, the pulp can be squeezed to produce juice (put it through a juicer for an easier time getting larger quantities). Use that liquid in salad dressings, bread dough, or your morning juice or smoothie.
    It can be thinly sliced or chopped into tiny matchsticks for a lively addition to green salads, potato salads, and slaws.
    Use fresh turmeric in lentil, rice, and other grain dishes.
    Sliced, it can be added to soups or pickled.
    Fresh turmeric pairs well with egg dishes: Try grating some into egg salads, scrambled eggs, or omelettes.
    Use grated turmeric in a marinade for chicken, fish, or vegetables.
    Make turmeric tea with grated turmeric, honey, and freshly grated black pepper. (You'll often see turmeric paired with black pepper, as it helps with the absorption of the turmeric.)
