In less than the amount of time it takes to even scan a takeout menu, you could have an anti-inflammatory feast on your plate. The first of our new video series Food With Benefits, this dinner comes together in five minutes flat, courtesy of the frozen cauliflower rice base, canned chickpeas, and a few key flavor-boosting spices. "Turmeric has been used in ayurvedic medicine for centuries; the active ingredient is curcumin, which is a powerful healer," explains Charlotte Press, the registered dietitian who developed the recipe. "Turmeric has been found to reduce inflammation in numerous studies. Turmeric can also help relieve pain, as shown in many studies, including one that showed it was as powerful as Advil in certain instances."
With a savory, umami flavor, plenty of satisfying texture, and just the right hint of spice, this is a dinner you'll find yourself reaching for over and over. Do note that we always recommend using high-quality, organic spices, which have a stronger flavor, which is so important when you're relying on just a few ingredients to make a delicious meal (we love Simply Organic spices). Feel free to switch up the fresh vegetables based on what you have on hand for an easy custom take.
