Suggested Uses for Dr. Cowan's Garden Turmeric Powder:
- Melt on low heat a cup of grass-fed ghee, coconut oil or a mixture of both, then add 1 teaspoon to up to 2 tablespoons of Turmeric Powder (depending on taste) and about ½ teaspoon of fresh ground black pepper. Gently stir, then remove from heat. Right before the oil starts to harden, stir to thoroughly mix the turmeric and pepper into the oil. Store in a Miron jar and use for sautéeing.
- Sauté chopped garlic, shallots and grated ginger in a good amount of coconut oil till fragrant. Stir in 1 tablespoon Dr. Cowan's Garden Turmeric Powder. Add big handfuls of chopped greens (kale, Swiss chard, collards, whatever you have on hand) and stir to coat. Add a half can of coconut milk, and braise the greens till tender.
For a powerful anti-inflammatory morning tonic, squeeze a half lemon into a glass. Stir in ½ tsp Dr. Cowan’s Garden Turmeric Powder, ¼ cup full-fat coconut milk and ½ tsp raw honey. Add 1 or 1 ½ cups warm water to glass and stir. Sprinkle cinnamon on top, if desired. Continue to stir as you drink to keep the turmeric from sinking to the bottom.
Warm a can of drained black beans in a saucepan. Add Turmeric Powder to taste (1 or 2 teaspoons), along with a teaspoon each of Swiss Chard Powder and Leek Powder. Put a couple tablespoons of seasoned beans on a warmed tortilla and top with salsa and chopped avocado.
- Slather honey over buttered sourdough toast and sprinkle generously with Turmeric Powder.
