There are a lot of ways to have breakfast. On special occasions we might opt for the extra labor-intensive spreads, or order breakfast platters for doorstep delivery. For our everyday breakfast, we usually settle into a routine. We opt for the quick fix that requires little effort and usually doesn’t taste great, but you don’t need to stay stuck in that everyday breakfast rut! What I love about this Vegan Pumpkin Oatmeal with Turmeric is how easy it is to make and how good it is for you at the same time. It also happens to taste incredible.
The Best Pumpkin Breakfast Recipe
Pumpkin is going to be making the rounds again as autumn is quickly approaching. We’re going to see it in everything, but this recipe is the best way to incorporate this fall favorite into your morning meal. There is nothing that says autumn better than a hot bowl of oatmeal, and the sweet-spicy mix of seasoned pumpkin is just the thing to start a crisp and chilly fall morning. It’s so easy to make, which is ideal for those late, sleep-in days when you don’t want to crawl out of the covers.
Why You Should Use Turmeric in This Oatmeal
Turmeric is the backbone for this oatmeal, providing deep earthy notes and complimentary spice to the cinnamon and nutmeg. Beyond the enhanced flavor profile this turmeric recipe gives to the oatmeal, there are extraordinary health benefits to the spice which you’ll typically find in curry. Turmeric is high in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. In addition to potentially preventing cancer, heart disease, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease, turmeric may also help battle depression.
Turmeric is the perfect additive to recipes that include pumpkin, and you can incorporate it along with other spices that compliment pumpkin too. If you ever have the chance to use this flavorful and healthy spice to enhance your food, you should take it.
