Simple every day basics always have a place in my home. Served here with oatcakes, just as happily alongside a plate of beautiful chopped carrots, fresh baby radishes + sliced cucumbers with the skins left on.
I do have a recipe for homemade hummus here on the website, if you wish to make your own please search in the menu. This turmeric hummus is for fast and furious days when only shop-bought will do; shop-bought with a boost!
Turmeric is well studied in the literature; thousands of research papers extoll the anti-inflammatory properties of its' active ingredient curcumin. (Head over to the blog to read more about Curcumin and Inflammation). Here I wish simply to highlight the fact that whole foods are 'synergistic'; they work best in synergy with other whole foods. As Batman is to Robin and Bonnie is to Clyde, so Black Pepper is to Turmeric... or more accurately, so Piperine is to Curcumin... increasing the bioavailibility of the curcumin by more than 2000 fold ensuring that the body is targeted with all the anti-inflammatory protection on offer.
