I've been reading a lot about the benefits of turmeric lately and have been adding little bits to my diet here and there. It's used a lot in Indian cooking and known to be anti-inflammatory and also to help with brain function and possibly depression.
I make this super simple homemade recipe when I want a quick and warming lunch.
400g frozen peas
1 tsp ground turmeric
500ml vegetable stock (I use Kallo vegetable stock)
Chop the leek into pieces and pop all the ingredients in a saucepan. Simmer for approximately 10 minutes or until the leek is tender. Remove from the heat and blitz with a hand-blender. Serve with chunks of bread or rice cakes with hummus also go surprisingly well.
Serves 2 - 3
