Everyone is talking about turmeric lately…and with good reason! This golden spice originally used in Ayurveda, has become a worldwide superfood phenomenon! Whilst it has just become widespread, turmeric is a plant of the ginger family that has existed in Asia for thousands of years and has been used for its widespread medicinal properties.

Science has been backing up all the benefits that turmeric provides, making it an extremely sought after superfood. But, whilst everyone is learning about its amazing properties, not many people know how they can use this spice in everyday cooking.

There are many ways to use it turmeric and it’s also important to distinguish that you can either get it in powdered form or fresh. The powdered form is naturally easier to add to all kinds of dishes, like teas, turmeric lattes, smoothies, soups, sauces, curries, or marinades. You can equally add fresh turmeric to all these dishes, but you would have to grate it or chop it finely.
