Turmeric (42)

    Turmeric can be used fresh as a root, much like ginger, or more commonly in its dried, powdered form. A staple in curries and rice dishes, turmeric is finding its way into more and more recipes, in part thanks to its status as having anti-inflammatory and health benefits.

    Fresh turmeric root, grated ginger and almond milk create a soothing golden milk that's better for you than a cup of hot chocolate! It's not as spicy as the traditional turmeric milk known as Haldi Ka Doodh but it's still a great way to introduce more turmeric into your diet. Any milk or milk alternative will do here. Agave nectar can be used in place of honey for a vegan drink.
