I like to sprinkle cinnamon on my porridge

and occasionally a little nutmeg.


Yes, that’s what I said. A reader of my blueberries blogpost advised that she liked to stir a teaspoon of turmeric into her porridge. And she said the flavour of turmeric really enhances the blueberries.

I sometimes add a little turmeric to the cooking water when boiling rice. This makes the rice slightly yellow, or orange if you’re over enthusiastic when shaking the jar. I didn’t think turmeric had much flavour and I’ve always thought it was a cheap substitute for saffron.

So, time for a re-assessment.

Looks like the jury is out!

On the one hand:

Why Turmeric is the New Superfood

And on the other:

Stop Calling Turmeric A Superfood.

But several foodie bloggers such as HeavenLynn Healthy are hugely enthusiastic about Turmeric Porridge.

The recipe doesn’t seem greatly different to mine so I think I’ll have to try adding turmeric to my daily porridge.

I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
