We love eating a seasonal rainbow of foods. This time of year, it's all about dark, leafy greens, crisp, red apples. It's time to let it all glow with some vibrant golden turmeric.
You've struck gold
Botanically speaking, turmeric's the close cousin of ginger, which packs a healthy punch of its own. Some use turmeric root for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. We get our fresh, organic roots from La Grama, a Peruvian collective that work with local communities from the Amazon rainforest, the Andes highlands and the desert.
We love a pinch or two grated over roasted cauliflower. And for an easy, fast meal grab six eggs, a head of cauliflower, one onion, a clove of garlic and feta cheese. Fry up the garlic and onion, while gently boiling the cauliflower florets. Whisk together the eggs and cheese and pour them over the garlic and onion. Add the cauliflower and season with turmeric, cumin and paprika.
Fresh turmeric stains easily, so can turn your hands and kitchen yellow,
although with a little squeeze and rub of lemon juice, it should come off like magic.
