There is loads of new research on tumeric, and it's becoming known as a true anti-inflammatory super power!
If you're not familiar with this spice, it is bright orange in color and is an ingredient in curry. It has a mild, nutty flavor.
Some studies are showing that tumeric may help to prevent some cancers (in epidemiological studies) and may reduce cancer cell growth in already existing tumors. That's big news for a spice!
Over the next two weeks I will give you two new tumeric recipes to help you to increase your intake!
Tumeric Coconut Rice
1 1/3 cups vegetable broth, low sodium
2/3 cup lite canned coconut milk
4 tsp ground numeric
1 1/2 cups brown jasmine rice, rinsed
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for ~30 minutes, or until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed.
Serve as a side to grilled tofu, vegetables, or chicken!
