Roasted Broccoli and Turmeric Goat Cheese Crostini

This blog post was sponsored by MegaFood as part of my participation in their Ambassador program. I am a strong believer in their farm to tablet philosophy. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


... I find turmeric has a taste that is best eased into, kind of like whiskey... frequently hearing “I tried turmeric in a golden milk latte (or curry), but didn’t care for it. Too strong and bitter, for me.” Which it certainly can be if your tastebuds aren’t used to that profile.

So my thought was to tame down the turmeric flavor without using less. I’d combine it with goat cheese, which is tart and tangy, thus absorbing some of the bitterness.

I like using a combination of MegaFood Daily Turmeric Nutrient Booster Powder™ because it has even more components like holy basil leaf, as well as their harvest fruit and fresh fruit blends, plus a little more ground turmeric for a deeper orange color. And because black pepper must be used in conjunction for turmeric to release its full health benefits,* that would be the forward flavor punch of the spread.
