Sfouf (Lebanese Turmeric Cake)

Rating: Unrated
This Lebanese cake flavored with anise seeds was one of my favorite treats growing up. It's a beautiful bright yellow thanks to turmeric powder. My grandmother shared her recipe with me so I can finally make it for myself!

Instant Pot® Chicken Biryani

Rating: Unrated
Traditional chicken biryani made in an Instant Pot® cuts down on time but not flavor. The rice comes out fluffy and the chicken comes out tender. You can't ask for more. Serve with yogurt raita to complement the spices.

Golden Milk Nice Cream

Coconut milk and coconut cream are mixed with fresh turmeric, fresh ginger, honey, and toasted spices and churned into a cold and creamy summer treat. Use a plant-based syrup instead of honey to make it vegan.

Potato, Leek, Carrot and Turmeric Soup

A flavorful and hearty vegetable soup cooked with ginger and turmeric.

Turmeric Eggs and Cheese

Rating: Unrated
Looking for ways to get turmeric into your diet in a way that makes it available to your body? Try this simple yet bold recipe to flavor your morning eggs! Simply turmeric, oil, eggs, cheese, and lots of ketchup if that is your thing like it is for me!

Authentic Saag Paneer

Rating: Unrated
Saag paneer is a classic Indian dish of cooked spinach studded with cubes of fried paneer cheese. Thickened with cream or coconut milk, it's a hearty and filling vegetarian meal.

Ginger-Turmeric Herbal Tea

Rating: Unrated
If you are having trouble including these anti-inflammatory spices in your diet, here is an alternative to supplements. Actually quite tasty! I believe this tea is popular in Okinawa, Japan. Just remember turmeric stains. I make mine in an old mason jar, wrapped in an old tea towel! Turmeric is used for medicinal purposes in India.

Slow Cooker Mediterranean Stew

Rating: Unrated
A nice hearty stew that is wicked easy.

Lamb Tagine

Rating: Unrated
When I made this dish I left the kitchen window open. The smell attracted several male neighbors, and when my husband came in, he said that it smelled so good, he hoped it was coming from our house and not from someone else's! Serve with my Moroccan Couscous and Cucumber Raita on this site.
