The buzz about Turmeric

Turmeric is trending, but we do love it too! Turmeric is a deep yellow colored root from the ginger family. The peppery flavor is a hit and compliments many dishes. It needs substantial rainfall to thrive and therefore grows well on the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia. There are so many ways to use turmeric, here are just a few ideas.

  1. Golden Milk - we drink before bed

  2. Add to meat and seafood dishes

  3. Make a dip for your veggies

  4. Use as a pickling spice

  5. Pumpkin-apple smoothies!

  6. Coconut squash soup

  7. Make a viniagrette

  8. Chili-lime popcorn

  9. Toss with roasted veggies

  10. Add to rice
