Summary

There’s more to turmeric than its bright, cheery color! Research shows that the compound that gives turmeric its color, curcumin, may have the potential to fight inflammation, depression, and heart disease. This sauce is super versatile (see Chef’s Notes below for ideas!) and is the perfect vehicle to get in a dose of turmeric to help maintain overall health.
