Turmeric paste is all the rage right now, and for good reason!

It's touted to boost your health thanks to its high content of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, most notably one called curcumin.

This means that turmeric paste may reduce inflammation, improve brain function, lower heart disease risk, improve symptoms of arthritis, and more!

Turmeric is bright yellow, and is a main ingredient in curry powder mixes. By itself, the flavour is much milder than that of curry, and thus, it works a treat in both sweet and savoury drinks and meals.

We've added a Perth-made turmeric power boost paste from Total Tonic Co to the Dinner Twist Marketplace, made in small batches by a family business (just like ours!)

Here are 3 tasty ways to enjoy turmeric paste — so grab a jar of turmeric paste on the Dinner Twist Marketplace and get cooking!

Turmeric Omelette with Fried Veggies

What you need (serves 2):
  • 1 tsp turmeric paste
  • 3 eggs
  • 60 mL (1/4 cup) milk/cream (of choice)
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 small onion
  • Lettuce
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin or curry powder
  • salt & pepper
  • oil/butter for cooking
Method:
  1. Heat a non-stick frypan with a little oil/butter over medium-high heat. Dice zucchini, slice onion, and add to frypan with cumin or curry powder. Fry for 5-6 minutes until tender. Season with salt and pepper. Remove to a bowl and keep frypan.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and turmeric paste.
  3. Add egg mixture to frypan (make 1 large or 2 smaller omelettes) and fry for 1-3 minutes, until almost set.
  4. Add the veggies to one half of the omelette(s) in the frypan, then flip other half over to cover.
  5. Remove to a plate and serve with lettuce and sliced tomato.
Tips:
You can replace zucchini & onion with any veggies you have on hand. Our favourite suggestions include mushrooms, spring onions, eggplant or capsicum.
