The Nutrition Bit:

Not only is this tasty but it provides a fantastic balance of plant-based protein with the added benefit of seasonal watercress. Watercress is rich in vitamin A (from beta-carotene) and vitamin C, and is a source of folate, calcium, iron and vitamin E. It also contains useful amounts of vitamin K, thiamin, vitamin B6, potassium and iodine and is naturally low in sodium. Due to its high-water content (93%) it is low in calories.

The addition of turmeric is one of my go to foody nutrition favorites. Curcumin is the compound in turmeric that gives it its distinctive yellow colour. Turmeric has a long history of medicinal use in India and throughout Asia dating back over 4000 years. More recently the Western World has started to look at the potential health benefits with over 3000 publications in the last 25 years. Curcumin is thought to help inflammation, help reduce pain and is a potent antioxidant.
