When it comes to healthy ingredients, turmeric takes the (ahem) gold. Doctors, nutritionists, and health experts alike routinely sing its anti-inflammatory, brain-boosting praises. Need easy ways to incorporate the all-star, rich yellow spice into your diet? The Little Beet culinary director Gabe Kennedy has not one, but three (vegan!) recipes.

Kennedy likes featuring the hard-working spice into to many of his recipes by pairing it with black pepper, which not only enhances the healing benefits, but the taste as well. “What’s great about turmeric is that is plays well with both sweet and savory combinations,” he says.

Here, Kennedy shares his recipes for a turmeric tahini dressing, turmeric almonds, and a golden milk latte—all of which take less than 15 minutes to make. Check out the following step-by-step breakdown for the recipes, including a video that shows exactly how it’s done.

Have 15 minutes to spare? Check out three quick-to-make recipes starring turmeric below.

1 cup coconut milk
1 cup almond milk
1-inch fresh turmeric
1/2 piece of sliced fresh ginger

Black peppercorn (4 peppercorns each)
