|Roasted veggies with chimichurri sauce
Making the additional eliminations on the AIP have helped me heal. Of course, I still avoid most fruit, with the exception of berries. Adding cultured veggies which are rich in good bacteria has aided my recovery as well. Here is a recipe I have been using to make sauerkraut. http://www.phoenixhelix.com/2013/05/08fail-no-pound-sauerkraut/
The bulk of my diet is veggies which offer tons of healing properties. Here is one of my favorite veggie-full recipes: Chimi-Chimi roasted veggies, AKA roasted veggies with chimichurri sauce.
Here's what you need for the roasted veggies:
1 carrot, peeled, cut in half lengthwise
2 zucchini, cut in half lengthwise
1 red or yellow onion, cut into large chunks
2 handfuls of mixed greens
Salt and pepper
parchment paper-lined baking sheet
Here's what you need for the chimichurri sauce:
1 cup fresh cilantro
1/4 cup + olive oil
1/4 tsp. garlic granules
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green onion
Here's what you do for the roasted veggies:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Set to roast setting, if available. Place cut veggies on a large parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for about 20+ minutes or until fork tender.
Here's what you do for the chimichurri sauce:
Put all your ingredients in your food processor and puree until blended.
To serve, cut veggies into bite-sized pieces and toss with chimichurri sauce in a bowl. Serve on a bed of greens.
