The best recipe
This turmeric cabbage recipe is the best because it’s from my Mumma. My mum’s cooking is totally amazing and she knows how to cook Asian food. She makes this turmeric cabbage recipe every time we have a curry and it such an easy, tasty, healthy side dish.
All you need is a few ingredients and it’s really cheap to make too!
Why you should include it in your diet
Research already shows turmeric has many benefits and cancer researcher Ralph W. Moss says turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory, it inhibits the growth of new blood vessels in tumours and it’s a powerful antioxidant.
The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin and by adding some black pepper with your meal it increases your absorption and the healthy benefits of turmeric.
Curcumin s amazing as it stimulates the gallbladder which helps you produce bile. Bile has a really important role in your body as it helps you digest fat, which experts believe this improves digestion. If your digestion is working properly you won’t have any issue with excess weight, your hormones and body will be balanced and so will you.
- 1-2 cups organic chopped cabbage
- 1 TBSP coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1/4 tsp mustard seeds
- 1-2 TBSP coconut cream

How else to take turmeric?
Nutrition Australia says turmeric can easily be added to your diet. “We encourage people to use a range of herbs and spices as they’re good sources of antioxidants, which may have protective effects for health,” says Hourigan.
You can also grate it like ginger or take a supplement (powdered capsules, fluid extract or drops). Adults can take about one to three grams of the dried powdered root per day. You can add slices to a make a tea or add some turmeric powder to make a latte. Enjoy!
