"This is a healthy dish I serve up often. I developed this recipe when our naturopath told me I should introduce turmeric and cumin to my husband to help relieve his gout symptoms. Turns out he really enjoyed it which I was happy about since he is not big on seasonings. The turmeric, cumin, ginger and avocado oil give this recipe many health benefits."
