For those of you in the northern hemisphere, do you like to eat these delicious Indian inspired bowls of magic in the summer? And for those of you heading into the winter solstice, do you LOVE to eat bowls like this day-in and day-out? I sure do!! Regardless of temperature I love nourishing bowls! Especially in the eve or during a rainy afternoon.
This absolutely decadent magic mushroom curry, with moringa chutney is ridiculously good!! @sculptedkitchen has done it again and nailed this magic to perfection. And not to brag, but our turmeric is SOOOO good, and it’s a game changer when you use really good spices in any kind of meal that you’re making.
I often see opaque turmeric taking over the shelves in many grocery stores, and it’s just not the same as using extremely vibrant and alive turmeric, and spices in general. Like Moringa. When it’s fresh it’s GOOD. Don’t you agree??
