“This is a very simple dish, great for treating arthritis,” Jim Duke says. “The black pepper is important because it increases the uptake and activity of curcumin, one major active ingredient in curry and mustard.” Serve it as a side dish with any meal; it’s especially nice with roasted chicken and braised spinach.
