Caramelised Onion Sauce

Onions are a great prebiotic source and when they’ve been gently heated for quite a while, like in this recipe, they are very easy to digest. I use this sauce in stead of tomato sauce on pizza among other things. It’s a great alternative for those who can’t tolerate tomatoes and lectins. But it’s just as great with meats, cheese, sausages, or even just a piece of crispy bread with goat cheese.

Kimchi

This recipe is inspired by attending a fermentation workshop with Trish Dent. Fermenting foods is a way of preserving foods but also a way of converting starches and sugars into lactic acid by Lactobacilli bacteria (good bacteria) and inhibiting bad bacteria. This helps promote a healthy intestinal flora.

Chicken, sweet potato & coconut curry

This is enough for dinner for 3-4 people, is quick to prepare and looks after itself in the oven.
Serve it with basmati rice or noodles of your choice. The red split lentils go mushy and make for a thicker, creamier sauce.
