Coconut Turmeric Loaf

Updated: Jul 9, 2021

Sometimes you know what a dish will taste like before you even start cooking it. For me, this vegan coconut turmeric loaf was not one of those dishes. To say I was pleasantly surprised by the result would not be totally fair, because my expectations weren’t necessarily low. Still, I was floored by how spectacular the result was. This is not your average bread guys.



This is not your average bread guys. Flavoured with turmeric and coconut, it tastes like a tropical paradise. With its burnished orange, red-flecked crumb, this vegan quick bread is visually stunning. Yet its flavour is what won me over -- with coconut and turmeric. As well as grace notes from the tahini used to grease the pan. The tropical coconut flavour melded so well with the earthy turmeric, and the combination proved enticing and unusual enough to have me reaching for seconds, and even thirds.



Coating the baking pan with tahini was a new idea, too. It worked very well in terms of flavour, giving the loaf a kind of halvah crust on the outside, and release. I was able to turn the entire slab out of the pan with no sticking whatsoever. The loaf was also supremely moist, not to mention visually stunning. The burnished orange crumb flecked with red specks that result when turmeric interacts with baking powder, all topped with shredded coconut, which gave this bread major plate appeal.



Do you like turmeric? I used to dislike the taste of it and wouldn’t eat it until I found out about its benefits. Did you know that turmeric offers a long list of health benefits but is most known for its anti-inflammatory properties? Inflammation has long been connected to diseases like asthma, arthritis and chrone’s disease but chronic inflammation may contribute to alzheimer’s, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels.
