Tumeric Scramble

Today, I was reading an article on "The 11 Best Foods You Aren't Eating". Although, actually it turns out I'm eating a lot of them. Except beets. Beets are gross.

At any rate, one of them is tumeric, and as you may remember I am the new owner of half a pound of tumeric. I use it for curry-type dishes, but the article suggested mixing it into eggs. I love eggs on the weekend, so figured why not.

Basically, I browned a bit of onion in olive oil, tossed in some frozen spinach, and added eggs (well, really, part egg whites, and 1 whole egg), salt, pepper, and tumeric.

You can tell there is something in there because the eggs are a bit more yellow that you'd think, given that they're mostly egg whites. (one of my secret favorite things about tumeric? if you squirt it with cleaning fluid, if it gets on the counter, it changes from bright bright yellow to bright red). These were really good, the flavor was subtle, but it really added a little something extra to the eggs... this is the kind of thing secret recipes are made of! try it!
