Common Foods That Use Turmeric Recipes

Foods that use turmeric to increase flavour

If you want to try getting some of the many health benefits of turmeric and increase the flavor of your food at the same time, there are a lot of ways to do that. There are actually many different ways you can add more turmeric to your dishes, from using it in your vegetables to adding it to soups and chili recipes. Here are some different foods that make use of turmeric.

Add Turmeric to Your Vegetables

An excellent way to add more turmeric into your diet through food is to add it to your vegetable dishes. This is an easy way to add the powdered for of turmeric without having to overthink it. Just think about turmeric like any other spice, sprinkling it on your vegetables along with your salt, pepper, and garlic salt. After the vegetables are cooked, they will have a little kick to them, but it isn’t going to be so strong they are hard to get down. Roasted vegetables are the perfect way to add more turmeric, especially with root vegetables and cauliflower. Try adding both ginger and turmeric to your roasted cauliflower and you won’t be sorry. Another way to add turmeric to vegetables is with sautéed greens, such as spinach or kale.

Use it in Soup or Chili

Another easy way to get more turmeric into your foods is by adding it to your soup or chili. This works whether you have ground turmeric that is in fine powder form or you freshly grate it at home when preparing your dish. It absorbs easily into the soup or chili as you are cooking it, and all of the other flavors easily overpower it. The flavor of turmeric won’t be any stronger than the salt and pepper you are adding thanks to the complex flavors used. It works better in a broth-based soup instead of a cream-based one, so add it to your vegetable soup or chicken noodle soup. It also works great in any type of chili.


While it may not seem like it, turmeric can also be used in a variety of beverages. One way is to make yourself a pot of turmeric tea. You will boil water with freshly grated turmeric and a little bit of ginger as well. Once the tea is done brewing, it is strained, and then flavored with lemon juice or honey. You can also juice fruits and veggies and add some turmeric to that, or add turmeric to any type of fruit smoothie that you prefer.

  1. Your recipe seems tasty and delicious. Like you, I also put some on my sauteed greens just for a mysterious taste. I would also like to share that I put a few sprinkles of turmeric powder along with All spice on my pumpkin pie. When I make beef stew, I would also pinch some and just add it in the pot. I am not really good on how to incorporate turmeric on my dishes that’s why I just add it in small quantity because I’m afraid that it will over power the taste. 

    I hope you don’t laugh but my sister who only often cook noodles would sprinkle it just so it’s incorporated. She said she likes to benefit from turmeric and other healthy food. Please share more recipes that we can make at home so we don’t have to just sprinkle it on our dish! More power to you!

      Thanks for you input here Missusb and absolutely I won’t laugh…But i did have a little giggle. not because I found it silly. But I too am a bit weird! When I first began discovering all the powerful ways turmeric helps with my health, I began to add it everywhere. The weirdest was on some toast with pickle and a pinch of salt, and I too often add it to noodle’s, mash potatoe, and even rice.

      All the best Rob

  3. Hi,

    No, I’m sorry I don’t have any Turmeric Recipes to share. I actually arrived here because I was looking for Turmeric benefits. I hear so many great things about how Turmeric is good for your health and supposedly great for the hair.

    So, I was searching online and found this article, which I’m glad that I did I learned a lot about the many ways, that I can use Turmeric now. I would have never imagined that Turmeric could be used in beverages. I might try this and see how it turns out.

    When I try sprinkling the Turmeric on my veggies, is it safe for small children to eat? Turmeric always looks so spicy. I don’t know I’ll have to try your recipes. Anyhow, I have bookmarked your site.

      Wow Lakisha. 

      I am so pleased you have gained encouragement to use more turmeric. Thank you for the lovely compliments. I really want to make this the go to all round turmericpedia lol.

      This spice is one that is more flavorsome rather that spicy hot. so you should feel safe that it won’t tickle ant tonsils. As for small children and sprinkling on your veggie’s “Wow” 🙂 what a great idea. And Yes it is a naural root vegetble after all and is perfectly safe for them to consume.

      Catch you again soon

      Regards Rob
