This delicious recipe combines the powerful flavor of tofu with the original flavor of turmeric, which in turn has properties that make it a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
Although turmeric is a much less used and perhaps less valued spice than saffron, it is a true treasure for the kitchen that adds color and great flavor to many dishes. Also cheaper.
It is an ingredient that must be used with caution, since an excess would give a touch too bitter. Its use is characteristic of Indian cuisine, where it is used mixed with other spices to achieve different flavors when seasoning.
For its part, tofu or soy cheese, gains in flavor when we mix it with turmeric, either in fillings, sautéed or on skewers.
