Tip of Stefano:

What is turmeric?

Turmeric is a spice that is extracted from the Curcuma longa plant. It is a standard ingredient in curry and adds to the taste and gives it its yellow colour. Turmeric tastes slightly bitter and peppery and is a very common spice in Oriental cuisine. Aside from recipes such as this one for curry marinade for seitan, turmeric is also great in sauces, salad dressings, salsa or in drinks. Turmeric tea, for example, is a healthy tea that is easy to make and tastes deliciously rich. Be sure to remember turmeric when barbecuing. It will make your outdoor meal more colourful, flavourful and healthy.

Turmeric has been used for thousands of years to combat a wide range of ailments in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine. Turmeric can be used both internally and externally. Its most important ingredient is curcumin, an antioxidant that acts as an anti-inflammatory agent.

At the age of 33 he was going with all guns blazing, but he didn't spare a thought for his own health - he smoked, drank a lot, worked up to 16 hours a day and drank around two litres of coffee daily. Then he developed two serious hernias, as well as being very overweight. He realised that he could not continue this way and decided on a complete turnaround. He quit drinking and smoking and slowly changed his diet, until he finally went almost completely vegan.Vegan, a step further than vegetarian Stefano's recipes are all vegan.

“I am just back from a week of cooking for a group of beginner yoga teachers. I had never cooked with fresh seitan before and when I was presented with this product I felt rather ill at ease about it. Then I read the simple description on the pack and after baking it on both sides for 2x 5min I ended up with a great looking product which a lot of the participants really enjoyed eating. We were surprised about the intense bite and flavour sensation. After a week of cooking for the participants there was still some seitan left over at the end, so I took a portion home with me. My partner has made delicious rice waffle burgers with curry, onion, salad, pepper and shoots from it. Much better than a lot of the veggie burgers that you find in the shops. It is a truly delicious treat!”
