Turmeric Tropical Smoothie

I love a simple combination where all the ingredients are balanced and the flavors blend perfectly. This tropical smoothie with turmeric is a great example. Any number of ingredients would make a great add-in, from coconut and vanilla to ginger and cayenne- but if you really want to taste the turmeric, keep it simple! Everyone is raving about the super-spice these days and touting the health benefits of turmeric, so pop some into your morning smoothie and enjoy the flavors too!

Crunchy Coriander Granola

This crunchy coriander granola IS a breakfast champion. The mellow flavor of coriander seeds is complemented by orange zest and coconut oil in every bite, and it is perfectly toasted to give a satisfying crunch to your breakfast bowl. This sublime cereal can also serve as a base for crusts, crumbles and bars, or as a nutty topping for an ice cream sundae.

Crunchy Coriander Granola

Ingredients

  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup sliced or slivered almonds
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin or sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup Indian coriander seeds
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 navel orange

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  3. In a medium saucepan, melt the coconut oil over low heat. Remove from heat and add the maple syrup and honey. Stir well.
  4. Pour the coconut oil mixture over the dry ingredients and stir to coat.
  5. Line a large sheet pan with parchment and spread the granola out in an even layer on the pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and stir the granola, returning it to an even layer. Put the pan back in the oven and cook 20 minutes more. Stir again and continue cooking until the granola is toasted and golden, about 10-15 minutes more.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven and zest the orange over the warm granola. Allow the granola to cool on the sheet pan and it will crisp up even more. Store in an airtight container.
