On Saturday morning I headed to my local market in Amsterdam North to get some wild caught shrimp (initially to make a different dish with) when - to my big surprise - I discovered a new food stand on the market, a BIOLOGICAL one! Hoorah! This stand looked so lush and beautiful with some amazing biological and bio-dynamic vegetables and fruits, that I just had to stop and chat with the owners. We didn't have a proper biological food stand on this market yet, so you can imagine my thrill when I discovered it. It saves me a trip across the water to get my ingredients. It so happened that he also sells some of his homegrown bio-dynamic greens and he had the most beautiful cauliflowers which were harvested that very morning. For only 2,50 for a great size I couldn't resist and decided I was going to have to honour this freshly plucked beauty with an amazing dish.
So there you have it, today I am so excited to share this delicious stew recipe with you.
This hearty and healthy stew is the perfect winter meal for family or friends. It's packed to the brim with healthy fibers, minerals and fats and brings you comfort and warmth on a cozy winters' evening or weekend lunch.
Enjoy and till next time!
For the stew:
Fort the shrimp:
For the rice:
Use two large full cups of organic brown rice. Soak overnight in a casserole or pan without lid in generous amount of water. Note: The soaking process overnight enables your gut to better digest the phytate from the rice. Drain the water in a sift the next day and cook 45 mins on low heat (or according to instructions on package).
