Turmeric Fusion Pasta
This recipe came to me while I was driving home today and listening to CBC radio discussions on the rise of attacks on Asians across the world. For me food is a way that I show love to people. So here is my love served up on a plate. Be nice to each other.
Turmeric Pasta Fusion
Boil pasta in water with 1tsp truly turmeric added and boil until en dente. Strain
(Save 1/2 cup of the boiled pasta water for later)
In a skillet: add over medium heat
3 cloves garlic sliced
a small pinch of grated ginger
1 tbps olive oil
saute until lightly browned
4-5 shiitake mushrooms sliced
1 tsp sesame oil
1tsp Truly Turmeric with black pepper
1 tbsp soy sauce (or soy cause alternative)
a sprinkle of black pepper
Saute until tender and sauce is well absorbed.
Add in the pasta and the reserved pasta water, cook for a few minutes and stir everything together.
Serve and garnish with chilli flakes, parsley and green onion (I didn't have sesame seeds, but I think that would work soooo well).
