 turmeric root - philosophie mama recipe with turmeric - superfoods, antioxidants

side note... a little about turmeric: 

In any time of year, one of my favorite herbs to use in cooking is fresh turmeric root. While we may be familiar with this herb as a powder (bright yellow), an ingredient in South Asian dishes (providing the characteristic yellow color of curry) or even as the spice that gives the condiment mustard its golden hue, turmeric can be increasingly found in its raw form at markets, as a root. Related to the more familiar + ubiquitous ginger root, turmeric is smaller in size + darker in color, but equally potent in taste + medicinal power.

It’s potent, slightly bitter, flavor makes it a bit more of an acquired taste than the familiar ginger, but it provides an earthy depth, especially for fall dishes.

Turmeric is more than simply a culinary herb. It is one of the most beloved medicinal plants in the Ayurvedic tradition. Traditionally, it is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent (and modern research studies confirm its efficacy). Its other medicinal uses include helping to regulate blood sugar levels, improving the skin + complexion, encouraging the release of excess heat from the body, strengthening the immune system, and even serving as a cancer preventative. It is also a potent natural antihistamine. Eating turmeric every day in some form would not be too often.. try adding a sprinkle or two in your smoothie! {trust me on this one!}

 

now back to the recipe...!

Do this: 

 

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. On a baking sheet, roast the spices (except cinnamon + Green Dream) in the oven for approx 6 min, until fragrant. Grind the roasted spices in a mortar pestle + then add in the cinnamon + Green Dream. 

 

In a pot on medium low heat, gently sauté the onion, garlic + ginger in coconut oil. Once softened, add the spices _ tomato paste, cook for another 2-3 minutes on low heat, stirring frequently, then add the coconut milk. 

 

Fill the empty coconut milk can with water, give it a stir, then add to the curry. Add the vegetables + mushrooms, except spinach, and let the curry simmer for 15-20 mins, or until the sweet potato is soft.

 

Taste to see if it has enough chili for your preference, if not add a few more flakes. Season with salt and pepper.

 

Take off the heat, and stir through spinach. Serve topped with fresh coriander leaves over a bed of quinoa, brown rice or spinach.
