    How often do you use Turmeric in your cooking?

    A common household spice turmeric has many medicinal benefits attached to it. How often and in which ways do you use turmeric in your diet?

    I use Turmeric quite frequently. I like the color it adds to dishes and the earthy tones it brings to the palette. I particularly enjoy adding turmeric to Jasmine rice or quinoa.  It also is a wonderful addition to mushrooms with galic and onions, corriander is nice with this combination as well.
    I only discovered turmeric last year and began using it because I had to reduce salt intake and the more spices I add, the less salt I consume. I have also heard it helps to lessen your appetite. Love this stuff!

    I grate turmeric into soups and stews.  It really adds a nice flavour and colour.  I also use sliced turmeric with sliced ginger and lemongrass for a refreshing tea that helps quell nausea, open breathing passages and reduce congestion.

    Frequently. Quinoa with chives, tumeric, garlic and cinamon, agave and rasins served cold.

    Frequently; it tastes good, and adds to the colour of foods.  It is also supposed to greatly reduce the chances of developing cancer.

    I always add turmeric, along with garlic and black pepper, to vegetable or meat recipes that I first cook in the crockpot and then puree in the blender. Pureeing really brings out all the flavors.

    I add it to as many dishes as possible because of its anti-inflammatory properties. The taste blends well in Indian and Mexican dishes, and it is particularly good in meatless recipes that are legume based.
