Curicumin Power in Spicy Curried Chickpeas #HighFiber

 

 

Day three of the A-Z Challenge and I am still going strong . I am blogging  the letter C and writing about one of my favorite spices curicumin aka turmeric ! The power of this ancient yellow spice is becoming a trend. From Alziemrs to cancers curicumin seems to be the cure. I grew up on this yellow vibrant spice and find it very easy to incorporate it into my cooking . It has been touted for its high antioxidant power and is a powerful anti inflammatory and antiseptic. It has been found beneficial in the treatment of arthritis and pancreatic cancer.

Some ways to use curicumin/ turmeric

Use liberally in curries. It can be used in most Thai and Indian dishes. Check out my curicumin loaded lentil chili.

Use in egg salad, potato salad , chicken salad and Tuna salad. It adds flavor.

Use in soups, chili , and sauces. It adds flavor and a rich color to the dish.

You can also take the pill form, but using it in a dish is so much yummier.

I am sharing with you one my favorite recipes loaded with curicumin: Spicy Curried Chickpeas.

This dish is simple to make , high in fiber, heart healthy and Vegan. Eat with pita bread or Indian Nan or scoop over rice for a simply spicy relish meal.  You can also use it a healthy filling for a wrap. Be creative !!
