Spinach and Spices

The secret of today’s Health-e-Recipe for Tandoori Spinach is in the thick, Greek-style yogurt used to bind the spinach and the spices into an irresistible dish. A healthy replacement for butter or cream, the yogurt is a perfect base for turmeric and ginger – two main spices in Indian cuisine that both show health-protective properties.

Ginger contains a variety of antioxidants, including gingerol, which may help destroy cancer cells and block cancer-related inflammation. Ginger’s cousin turmeric tastes milder and gives off-the-shelf curry powder its yellow color. It contains curcumin, a substance that also fights inflammation.

Adding garlic heightens the cancer-fighting potency of this dish. Along with the spinach itself, a leafy green vegetable that offers many health benefits, you’ve got a wealth of health protectors that also taste awesome. Click here to subscribe to weekly Health-e-Recipes from AICR.
