My wife, Hortie, regularly cooks up a batch of homemade turmeric sauce to compliment cooked vegetables at dinner. Here’s the recipe:
1 level tsp arrowroot
4 level tsp turmeric
1 level tsp paprika
1/8 level tsp cayenne
1 level tbsp olive oil (optional)
3/4 cup water
Thoroughly mix all of the ingredients in a very small pot. Cook on medium heat for ten minutes or until sauce has thickened.
This amount of sauce will serve two to four diners depending on how much they like to spice up their food. I particularly enjoy Hortie’s turmeric sauce on Brussel sprouts and potatoes. Turmeric sauce also compliments beans, rice, broccoli, carrots, peas, winter squash and tomatoes.
*NOTE: Curcumin, turmeric’s yellow pigment, is a powerful cancer-fighter.
