Turmeric paste is so easy to make. If you have it on its own it will not taste that great, but you can put it into your smoothies, almond milk, porridge and curries. I even put it on my oven baked fish.
Turmeric Paste Ingredients
- I/2 cup of organic ground turmeric
- 1 cup of water (you may need more)
- 1 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
- 1 teaspoon of ground ginger
- 70 ml of coconut oil
Place the turmeric and water in a pot on medium heat and stir until it becomes a paste. This should take about 8 minutes. It should not be too watery, so if it is, add more turmeric and if it is too dry add more water.
Once the paste is ready let it cool. Whilst still warm add the black pepper, coconut oil and ground ginger and mix well together.
Once it has cooled, place in a glass jar and store it in fridge. Use within two weeks.
Turmeric is so good for you. It’s anti-cancer! So enjoy adding turmeric paste to your meals in the knowledge that you really are doing your body a great favour.
