If you’re now wondering how to enjoy turmeric, it’s quite easy. As a culinary spice with a history spanning thousands of years, turmeric has been used in all kinds of recipes. An example of this is in a simple but delicious vegetable curry, which makes use of the following ingredients:

Pour in the tomatoes and stir until the tomato water evaporates, leaving behind a thick sauce. Garnish with cilantro then add salt and black pepper to taste. Serve with rice or plain yogurt. Note that black pepper is essential to this recipe since it increases the bioavailability of turmeric, and helps the body absorb its nutrients better.
