5 Easy Ways to Add Turmeric to Your Diet

Turmeric is everywhere these days, but do you really know how to use it.
We all love a good Pesto and this one is no exception. It works well with crudites, pizza, meat and fried rice recipes. My favourite is to spread it on a slice of fresh, crusty sourdough or this Almond & Chia Bread by Sunshine Coast Cook, Tania Hubbard.
This is a quick no fuss turmeric hummus that you can whip up at the last minute or keep it stored in your refrigerator for one or two days. A great working lunch or afternoon snack with a selection of raw veges, flat bread or healthy sourdough.
This marinade is delicious with chicken and also works well with pork and fish. The longer you marinate it the better the flavour of course. A minimum of two hours is recommended but prepping it the night before and storing it in the fridge will give your chosen meat the best flavour.
Alternate this with pumpkin soup to help keep the dinner menu interesting. If you prefer a vegan option you can replace the butter with a good quality oil of your choice. You might like to consider macadamia, coconut or avocado oil.
A gluten-free glaze that is heavenly! It can also be used with seared chicken or pan-fried tofu. Garnishing with sesame seeds, finely sliced red pepper and spring onions gives it its spectacular appearance.
