If you can get hold of fresh turmeric I would definitely recommend using it instead of the powdered, the flavour is amazing and so different to what comes out of the spice jar. I have only recently used fresh turmeric thanks to a friend who grows it giving me a whole bag of it, to which I replied, I have no idea what to do with this?(thanks Liz) This experiment turned out very tasty and so good for you! Turmeric contains curcumin, a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, stomach-soothing, and liver-and heart-protecting effects. It has been shown to reduce joint pain and inflammation and assist in protecting our liver agains toxins like alcohol.
4 tbsp coriander roots, cleaned and chopped (or 1 tbs ground coriander seeds)
2 tsp fresh turmeric, peeled and roughly chopped (or 1 tsp turmeric powder)
6-8 cloves crushed garlic
1 tsp black peppercorns
1 tsp honey
2cm piece fresh ginger
1 tbs salt-reduced soy sauce (use Tamari if you are gluten-free)
4 chicken breasts, halved
Place all ingredients except chicken into mini food processor and whizz to form a paste (you can use a mortar and pestle too) Place the chicken in the paste and marinate for at least and hour (the longer the better). Cook on the BBQ until cooked.
2 capsicum, sliced
1 eggplant, sliced
Pesto, homemade or organic store bought.
Chargrill eggplant and capsicum on the BBQ. Spread a blob of pesto on the eggplant, place a piece of capsicum on the eggplant and roll up to look like a mini hotdog. Great for nibbles when you have people over, a lunch box snack or to accompany dinner.0
