Are you looking to mix up your breakfast routine? If so, we highly recommend sprinkling some spice into your favourite breakfast recipes.
When it comes to experimenting with spices, turmeric is one that can’t be ignored. It has long been used to transform a whole range of dishes and is even used by Asian medical practitioners in various healing practices.
With so many spices out there to choose from, what makes turmeric stand out from the crowd? Well, firstly, it is favoured for its taste. Turmeric holds an earthy and almost bitter taste, making it a particularly popular addition to a whole range of curries.
But, the taste isn’t the only thing that makes turmeric so popular.
Incorporating turmeric into your diet has been linked to a whole range of health benefits. One of the most popular (and proven) benefits of turmeric is that it contributes to a normal healthy digestive system. Due to this, many people take turmeric tablets to support healthy digestion.
Tasty Turmeric Recipes
From taste benefits to health benefits; there are plenty of reasons to try turmeric. Read on to discover three of our favourite turmeric breakfast recipes. These recipes are easy to make and will leave you with a tasty dish in no more than 30 minutes.
1. Turmeric Scrambled Eggs
With very little effort, turmeric can successfully add a spicy kick to traditional scrambled eggs. The great part is that this meal will take no longer than 15 minutes to prepare!
For best results, lightly fry garlic and spinach leaves in a non-stick pan with coconut oil. While this is wilting, whisk your eggs together with coconut milk and turmeric until it reaches a smooth consistency. Once whisked, add the mixture to your pan and stir continuously for around 8 minutes (or until the mixture is at your desired consistency).
Once you are happy with the consistency of your scrambled eggs, serve on sourdough bread.
2. Turmeric Pancakes
Are you a fan of savoury pancakes? If so, you’re going to love turmeric pancakes.
To make turmeric pancakes, whisk together all of your usual pancake ingredients and add in a ½ teaspoon of turmeric. Once the mix is smooth and lump-free, add two tablespoons of batter to your pan and cook for 2-3 minutes before flipping over. The pancakes will be done once they reach a golden-brown colour.
Turmeric pancakes taste great on their own, but we recommend adding lemon curd and ginger on top for an unforgettable punch.
