Skin beautiful prawn oatmeal curry with turmeric

It’s Day 6 of Oat Week at The Curious Giraffe!

When you think of oats, savoury dishes don’t immediately come to mind. Most people think of pairing them with sweet things like apples and cinnamon however they are much more versatile. If you think of replacing rice with oats in certain recipes, it opens up a whole new ballgame! I don’t eat a lot of rice, however I love many of the seasonings that come in rice dishes. So I use oats with italian flavourings in risotto-like dishes, or with Thai and Indian spices. It’s a great neutral base that picks up whatever flavour you throw at it! I’ve even used oats in a successful version of Spanish paella! Today I’m doing a delicious curry using Indian seasonings which is full of heart-healthy, and skin friendly, Turmeric.

Turmeric and it’s active ingredient curcumin has been hailed as a superfood by many health gurus. There is a great roundup by Dr. Andrew Weil, of the key benefits of turmeric, here. Dr. Randy J. Horwitz the medical director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine and assistant professor of clinical medicine at the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Tucson wrote a paper in the American Academy of Pain Management discussing the health benefits of turmeric, and he stated that:

“Turmeric is one of the most potent natural anti-inflammatories available.”

Besides being excellent for your heart, this flavourful curry is full of the skin friendly ingredients turmeric, oats, and prawns.
