Why a Butternut Squash and Spinach Korma? Turmeric is the reason

This week I wanted to use the Turmeric Powder I was supplied with from Indigo Herbs, As I love Indian Cooking I want to make a Korma.

  • Known as the “Spice of Life” and “Queen of the Spices”, Turmeric is perhaps the most famous of Indian Superfoods. Whilst Turmeric widely used in cooking – no curry is complete without the inclusion of this golden wonder spice! There is not a system in the body that isn’t supported by the powerful antioxidant qualities of Turmeric.

  • Immune Booster
  • Powerful Antioxidant
  • Brain Boosting
  • Heart Disease
  • Arthritis Pain Relief

Turmeric benefits don’t stop there!  Antibacterial properties can help to heal wounds and skin abrasions. Turmeric can increases liver function and moderates insulin response. Tumeric is also especially rich in B vitamins, vitamin C and a wide spectrum of essential minerals.
