Ingredients

  • 2 tsp coconut oil (or garlic infused oil if you can tolerate it)
  • 1 inch chunk ginger, peeled
  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 1 broccoli
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 cup spinach (omit or replace with string beans for low histamine)

  • 1/2 tsp lime, juice (omit for low histamine)
  • Handful of cashews (omit or replace with pine nuts for low FODMAP)
  • Fresh cilantro (optional)

Instructions

  1. Heat up the coconut oil in a large saucepan on medium heat. 

  2. Peel and chop the ginger and add to the pan together with the turmeric and cumin, before stirring and cooking for a few minutes until the ginger is soft. 

  3. Meanwhile, peel and cut the potato in 1 inch cubes before adding to the pan and letting sauté for a few minutes. You can add a splash of water or more oil if the spices/potato starts to stick to the bottom of the pan.

Recipe Notes

Tofu or cubed chicken breast can be added to this recipe for additional protein. Just cook these separate in sesame or coconut oil and add them to the broth when cooked.

Tip of the Day

Often times we read the label and aren’t sure what we are looking at or what numbers are “good.” The best way to read a label is to first look at the serving size, which tells us the amount we would need to eat to equal the rest of the nutrients on the label. It is important to be aware of the serving size listed, because they range from 1.5 ounces for a favorite cookie to one-tenth of a pound for raw kale. Next read the Percent Daily Value on the label’s right side. The percentages in that column tell you what percentage of the recommended daily nutrients you get after eating one serving size. For example, if a serving size of your favorite snack is a whopping one pretzel, and the percent daily value for sodium is 41%, then each pretzel you eat gives you 41% of the recommended daily intake for sodium. Two pretzels gives you 82%. Three pretzels gives you 123% and so on.

A convenient way to look at percent daily values is to follow the 5-20 rule; 5% or less is considered low, while 20% or more is considered high.
