Because turmeric has so many health benefits, I often get asked what you can use turmeric in. So today I’d like to share with you 10 turmeric recipes that will show you the range of things you can do with turmeric.
Health Benefits of Turmeric
Turmeric is a deep orange root from India that is used as a spice in a lot of eastern dishes. It has a wonderfully earthy and exotic flavor along with many health benefits:
Turmeric has strong anti-oxidant properties that may help prevent cancer (source 1, 2).
Turmeric is also one of the most potent natural anti-inflammatories (source)
It may help with sprains, strains and other issues related to inflammation (source 1, 2).

Make sure you’re using the RIGHT Turmeric
If you’re impressed with this miracle root, start using it in your everyday cooking! There are lots of turmeric recipes to choose from. I usually add a little bit to any dish that I’m sautéing on the stovetop like stir-frys, scrambles, lentils, etc.
To obtain all of the good benefits from turmeric, make sure you get non-irradiated, organic turmeric. Other brands may be so processed that they barely contain any healing properties. You can see an example of non-irradiated turmeric here. Be careful of where you put it though, it’s color is so strong that it can dye whatever in comes into contact with, like a dishtowel, white shirt or even a wooden spoon!
If you prefer not to use it in cooking, but you still want the benefits, buy it in capsule form.
