Long revered for its antioxidant goodness and versatility in the kitchen, turmeric is one of this year’s biggest food trends. Inspired by its gorgeous golden color and our fondness for this healthy, delicious ingredient, we’d like to introduce this lovely exotic spice—and share five of our favorite ways to bring turmeric to your table.
A Taste of Sunshine
If cooking makes your heart sing, chances are you’re probably already familiar with turmeric and all the wonderful ways it can enhance your favorite recipes. If you’re brand new to this sunny spice, however, you might be wondering exactly how turmeric tastes.
Known for its aromatic earthy flavor, Sari Foods Organic Turmeric is made from high quality hand selected raw turmeric rhizomes. It has a mellow, ever so slightly pungent taste that compliments many savory dishes—as well as some sweet ones! The way our turmeric is grown and handled produces a fuller, richer taste than many other brands. Grown organically in the bright sunshine of India, it is then hand-picked, sun-dried, and gently ground in its entirety to preserve all of its precious nutrients and full-bodied flavor.
And now, without further adieu, here are five of our all time favorite turmeric recipes!
