HOW TO MAKE TURMERIC EGGS
I love how easy scrambled eggs are to make.
First, you whisk the eggs and turmeric. Then, melt the butter in a frypan over moderate heat. Then you add the spinach and mix it through the butter until it has wilted, then you add the whisked turmeric eggs and cook until you get your preferred egg consistency.
I highly recommend that you keep moving the eggs to the centre with a spatula or wooden spoon every 30 seconds while they are cooking.
