Turmeric recipes

After Davs experiments with Turmeric, I wanted to start a post about ways of taking high doses of Turmeric in natural foods.
 
Personally, I'd rather take natural Turmeric rather than in a pill, but hitting the high doses that Dav has been experimenting with (upward of 4g per day), this can have quite an overpowering taste...
 
So, I thought it may be useful to list some food prep tips on turmeric, where to get it, etc...

    You can but turmeric from any supermarket, but it's often much cheaper to get it from the ethnic aisle, where they tend to sell the bulk Indian spices, rice, etc.
     
    Personally, I get mine from a market stall, which sell loose organic spices (plus Ceylon cinnamon, ginger, galangal, cumin, etc).
     
    Current research suggest turmeric to be most effective when taken with black pepper and some sort of fat, so recipes which include both would be useful...

    My usual prepped work lunch is a bag of micro rice, white fish and some veg, so I usually add turmeric to this, but there's little to no fat in there.
     
    Today I'll be breaking my fast with a typical favourite of half a dozen eggs, half an avocado and some spinach, which seems like the perfect place for turmeric and pepper.  Not sure what it will do to the taste though, but I'll let you know later...

    One of my favourite winter comfort foods is a smoked haddock kedgeree

    Fry a chopped onion in 2tbs butter, add a teaspoon (or 2) of turmeric, a bay leaf, a few cardamom pods and a stick of cinnamon. Cook for a minute the add 500g basmati and a litre of fish stock (chicken or veg would do too) with a bit of salt

    Poach some domed haddock fillets about 4-5min and hard boil some eggs.. flake fish, chop eggs, fold into the rice, sprinkle of parsley and a squeeze of lemon! Foook yes!

    I have no problem just downing it in water but I gather that citrus fruits mask the flavour/taste somewhat so adding it to orange juice or adding lemon and honey is another way of making a simple yet palatable drink. Also apparently it mixes very well with hummus if you like it.

    Never thought of mixing it with hummus, going to give that a go.
     
    I make vegan mayo (not because I'm vegan, I just hate mayo but really like the vegan stuff) using silken tofu blended with salt, pepper and mustard.  I tried adding turmeric, but my partner hated it...

    Morrocon hummus

    http://www.picklesnhoney....occan-inspired-hummus/

    INGREDIENTS
    3 C. Cooked Chickpeas
    ⅓ C. Olive Oil
    2 Large Cloves Garlic, Roughly Chopped
    Juice of 2 Lemons
    1 tsp. Cumin
    ½ tsp. Turmeric
    ½ tsp. Paprika
    ½ tsp. Salt
    Pinch of Pepper
    ¼ C. Water

    INSTRUCTIONS
    Begin by infusing the oil with garlic. Heat olive oil in a small frying pan over medium-low heat. Once oil is hot, add garlic and allow to cook until garlic turns a warm, golden brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
    Into your food processor, add cooked chickpeas, lemon juice, cumin, turmeric, paprika, salt and pepper, and garlic-infused olive oil. Blend for 30 seconds. Add water and blend until hummus reaches your desired consistency (I used ¼ C. water for a more thick and dry hummus).
    Serve with a sprinkle of paprika and some pita chips, as a spread on a sandwich, or simply grab a spoon and dig in!

    So many things to try


    Sweet Potato–Turmeric Miso Soup

    Ingredients

    1 small sweet potato
    1 3x5-inch piece kombu
    ¾ ounce bonito flakes (about 1½ packed cups)
    1 5.5-ounce can unsweetened coconut milk
    ¼ cup white miso
    1 tablespoon finely grated fresh turmeric or 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    Toasted coconut flakes, crushed salted, roasted peanuts, and chili oil (for serving)
    Preparation

    Preheat oven to 450°. Pierce potato several times with a fork or sharp knife. Roast potato on a rimmed baking sheet until tender, 35–45 minutes. Let cool, then scoop out flesh; discard skin.
    Meanwhile, combine kombu and 4 cups water in a large pot. Let sit until kombu softens, 25–30 minutes. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Immediately remove from heat once water starts simmering; fish out kombu and discard. Add bonito flakes and stir once to submerge them. Return to a gentle boil, reduce heat, and simmer about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let steep 15 minutes (this ensures you get the most flavorful broth, or dashi, possible). Strain dashi through a fine-mesh strainer into a medium bowl. Discard solids; wipe out pot.
    Transfer dashi to a blender. Add sweet potato, coconut milk, miso, and turmeric. Blend until smooth. Return to pot and bring to a very gentle simmer. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice.
    Divide soup among bowls. Top with coconut flakes and peanuts, then drizzle with chili oil.

    The humous idea sounds spot on.
     
    Infact mixing it with any dip is probably the easiest method thinking about it. Full fat mayo, mustard, piri piri sound like winners already.

    Look for Moroccan Tagine recipes they have a healthy dose of turmeric along with black pepper. 
     
    A lot of Indian dishes have turmeric as well; they tend to eat a lot of turmeric and the western world is slowly waking up to the fact that their diet is amazingly healthy.

    Asian food shops usually have large bags of turmeric at reasonable prices. 
    One brand that`s popular here in the Midlands is "East End"
