Author Notes

This recipe is derived from an old Persian tradition of adding turmeric to your eggs. Back in the day, Turmeric was presumably used for medicinal purposes. Although today, there is much debate about the specific health benefits of turmeric, it is still an excellent spice to utilize in the kitchen. I often use it in sautes and in this case on scrambeled eggs! When the turmeric is exposed to the hot olive oil, it turns into an absolutely gorgeous crimson color. It's really beautiful and adds a nice subtle flavor to otherwise simple eggs. —Basil and Roses
