Turmeric - The Many Uses of It!!
Regarded as a potent herb in combating various disorders and diseases – ranging from Alzheimer’s to cancer, arthritis to inflammations – Turmeric is no stranger to Indian cooking.
Sprinkle turmeric powder on egg salads to lend it an even stronger yellow tinge.
Blend brown rice with raisins and toasted almonds or cashews and flavour with turmeric, cumin seed powder and fresh chopped coriander leaves.
Sprinkle turmeric on nutritious steamed cauliflower and/or string beans and shallots.
For a smooth, savoury-rich, low-calorie dressing, you can make a unique blend with a pinch of turmeric, dried onion powder, teaspoon of mayo, all whipped with salt and pepper. Serve with lightly steamed cauliflower, celery sticks, red and yellow capsicum, steamed yam and broccoli.
An easy to make salad/vegetable abundant in nutrients, chop cauliflower florets in half and add a teaspoon of turmeric. Sauté for five minutes, remove from heat and mix well with olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
