7 Easy Ways To Eat (And Drink) Turmeric

If you follow the wacky and wonderful world of wellness bloggers and Instagrammers — or even if you've been to Starbucks lately — you've probably noticed that turmeric is suddenly everywhere. Long a staple in Indian curries and foods like mustard (if provides that golden yellow color!), the spice-rack staple has gone from languishing in the back of the rack, to sitting pretty right up front.
Maybe you've been curious and you've read up on recent studies indicating its health-promoting and disease-preventing properties? Perhaps you're curious to incorporate into your diet, but not sure how? As it turns out, there are lots of ways to eat and drink this spice.
 

1. Add it to scrambles and frittatas.

Use a pinch of turmeric in scrambled eggs, a frittata, or tofu scramble. If you or your family are new to turmeric, this is a great place to start because the color is familiar and the flavor subtle.

2. Toss it with roasted vegetables.

Turmeric's slightly warm and peppery flavor works especially well with cauliflower, potatoes, and root vegetables.

3. Add it to rice.

A dash of turmeric brings color and mild flavor to a pot of plain rice or a fancier pilaf.

4. Try it with greens.

Sprinkle turmeric into sautéed or braised greens like kale, collards, and cabbage.

5. Use it in soups.

A bowl of vegetable or chicken soup feels even more warming when it's tinged with golden turmeric.

6. Blend it into a smoothie.

While fresh turmeric root is especially great in juices and smoothies, a pinch of ground spice is good, too. The slightly pungent flavor is usually well masked in smoothies.

7. Make tea.

Simmer turmeric with coconut milk and honey to make an earthy and comforting beverage. aka the pervasive and wildly popular "Golden Milk."
