As two out of the five in our family suffer from an autoimmune condition, there is usually some of this mixture skulking in the fridge to provide a fast, tasty snack, to top baked potatoes, stir through pasta and offer impromptu guests a show off bruschetta, casually sprinkled with freshly torn basil and flat leaf parsley.
I hesitate to use the term superfood as it’s really a marketing term…. all food in moderation is super. However, cooked tomatoes have amplified cancer busting health benefits. When mixed with the turmeric and black pepper they offer a great hit of flavour with an anti-inflammatory bullet.
Simply mix together some very ripe tomatoes, sliced garlic and a sliced yellow pepper with a good slug of olive oil, 2 x tsp of turmeric, sea salt and fresh black pepper and throw into a moderately hot (Gas 6/200) oven for 30-40 minutes. Cool and store in the fridge for when they are needed.
