Turmeric Dressing

Antonia MagorComment

If, like me, you have seen these knobbly little tubars at farmers markets and wondered what do to with them this dressing is a fresh zingy addition to your fridge and salads. Turmeric is potently anti-inflammatory with a host of health benefits. Usually dried and ground into a spice the whole plants are becoming more widely available and add spice and warmth to dishes. Toss through steamed veg, drizzle on salad or noodles.

I would advise wearing gloves and being careful not to let turmeric sit on pale surfaces as it has a tendency to stain.

Free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar. Vegan.
