Turmeric is the superpower-wielding cousin of the ginger plant. It is been widely used for ages in South Asian cuisine and traditional medicine for its anti-inflammatory properties and its earthy, mustard-like flavour. It is also used in India to cure sore throats, indigestion, and treat wounds and liver ailments. Just a small pinch adds a world of vibrancy to your food while giving your body a wealth of immunity-boosting curcumin. Consider turmeric the least boring addition to your spice cabinet.
