Sweet potato turmeric miso soup (4 servings)
As I mentioned, turmeric is used to make a variety of turmeric weight loss recipes. It’s often mixed with potatoes since they are often used in diets to control your appetite.
It’s not only a healthy antioxidant recipe but will also reduce the amount of food your body requires, making you feel full faster, but in a healthy way.
The ingredients needed for this meal are:
- 1 small sweet potato
- 1 3×5-inch piece kombu
- ¾ ounce bonito flakes (about 1½ packed cups)
- 1 5.5-ounce can unsweetened coconut milk
- ¼ cup white miso
- 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh turmeric or 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Preheat your oven to 450° and roast potato on a rimmed baking sheet for 35–45 minutes. Let them cool, then scoop out flesh and discard their skin.
Meanwhile, combine kombu and 4 cups water in a large pot. Let them rest until kombu softens, for around 25–30 minutes.
Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add the bonito flakes and stir once to submerge them. Return to a gentle boil, reduce heat, and simmer about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and let steep 15 minutes (so you get the most flavorful broth). Strain dashi through a fine-mesh strainer into a medium bowl. Discard the solids and wipe out your pot.
Transfer the broth to a blender. Add the sweet potato, coconut milk, miso, and turmeric. Blend them until smooth.
Return to pot and bring to a very gentle simmer. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice.
Divide soup among bowls. Top with coconut flakes, peanuts or other nuts by choice then drizzle with chili oil.
It’s one of the best turmeric weight loss recipes that will make you feel full faster and help your body process the food more efficiently.
Making golden milk is as easy as making turmeric green tea. It’s one of the most used turmeric recipes for arthritis, because of the high levels of calcium in milk.
Calcium, as we all know, is good for your bones, and the turmeric can provide pain relief and aid with bone inflammation.
So, if you use a combination of these two, you will be able to reduce the pain caused by arthritis or other similar inflammation.
All you need to do is pour a bit of your milk of choice (cow, almond, coconut, or other) and add turmeric to taste. I personally like coconut milk since it helps me with my skin, but you can choose whatever milk you want.
It’s called golden milk because of the color the turmeric will give to the milk. You will notice some amazing results after just a few doses.
