3 Turmeric Ghee Recipes for Golden Nourishment
Skip to the Recipes:
Turmeric is one of the most beloved spices in the Ayurvedic kitchen, as versatile and delicious as it is beneficial to the body. There’s almost no end to the ways this golden rhizome can be incorporated into meals and recipes, which is why we created our brand new delicately spiced Turmeric Ghee.
Turmeric Ghee starts with a creamy base of our rich, pure ghee that we hand make in small batches from the finest organic, cultured butter from grass-fed and pasture-raised cows. From there, we add a blend of earthy golden turmeric and a hint of warm spices, including ginger, pippali, and black pepper.
The result is a creamy, subtly spiced blend to enhance your kitchen creations and nourish your well-being.
How to Enjoy Turmeric Ghee
This healthy and flavorful alternative to butter and oil can be used for cooking, baking, or as a simple topping. As a natural source of high-quality fat, you can feel confident adding Turmeric Ghee to almost any sweet or savory beverage, meal, or recipe.
If you want to keep things simple, enjoy this spiced ghee on top of soups, stews, or kitchari, or spread a layer on top of toast or baked goods. It makes a delicious golden drizzle for popcorn, a tasty base for sauces and dressings, and a luscious addition to warm drinks.
With a high smoke point, ghee also makes a versatile cooking oil. Turmeric Ghee pairs perfectly with roasted veggies, grain dishes, soups, and curries. Anywhere you would typically use a fat or oil, feel free to substitute this brightly colored spiced ghee instead.
