- Add it to scrambles. Use a turmeric in scrambled eggs, or tofu scramble. If you or your family are new to turmeric, this is a great place to start because the color is familiar and the flavor subtle.
- Toss it with roasted vegetables. Turmeric’s slightly warm and peppery flavor works especially well with cauliflower, potatoes, and root vegetables.
- Add it to rice. A dash of turmeric brings color and chili for extra flavor to a bowl of plain rice.
Try it with greens. Sprinkle turmeric chili sauce into sauteed or braised greens like kale, collards, and cabbage.
- Use it in soups. A bowl of vegetable or chicken soup feels even more warming when it’s tinged with golden turmeric.
Many spices common in cooking have also been used medicinally by various cultures throughout history.

Regularly preparing food with these two spices may provide a major line of defense against digestive problems.
