Oxheart Cabbage, Curry & Wheat Grains

Did you knew that wheat berries are completely sustainable, healthy & unrefined? Delicious in salads, stews or dishes like this one!

Anyway, the key for thís dish is to use the best curry powder available. Personally, my favorite is the curry powder (Masala) of Arva Spices, a company located in Paramaribo (Surinam). Happily we have these so-called “Toko’s” in the Netherlands, where you can buy this curry powder. Even when you are not located in the Netherlands, I am sure you do have a great supplier near you as well. Luckily all spices are available everywhere these days!
