Inflammation? Auto-immunity? Allergies? This is a recipe that supports immune health across its many different potential manifestations.
Chicken broth is superbly nourishing for the gut, which is an absolutely essential foundation for immune health – over 70% of the immune system is located in the gut! We love this recipe for chicken broth.
Turmeric and ginger are superbly anti-inflammatory and help calm inappropriate immune actions. Cumin and coriander are excellent for digestion.
Not only that, but a good curry is so warming, comforting and soul-nourishing.Take-away versions often fall short of that, and can often leave your stomach feeling bloated and upset.
Make your own and enjoy a healing meal!

|Immune Toning Coconut Curry|
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 Onion diced
- 2 garlic cloves crushed
- 1 thumb size piece of ginger finely grated
- 1/2 tbsp Ground turmeric
- 1/2 tbsp ground cumin
- 1 tbsp ground coriander
- 1 stalk lemongrass lower third finely chopped (or you can just hit the stalk a few times with the back of a knife to release the essential oil and put it whole in your pot. Just remove it at the end of the cooking .)
- 1 Lime juice and zest
- 6 6 boneless chicken thighs or about 500grams white fish, cut in bite size pieces
- 1 sweet potato peeled, chopped into cubes
- 1 red capsicum thinly sliced
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 can full fat coconut milk or coconut cream
- 1 bunch coriander
- Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat.
- Add onion and cook until onions are translucent.
- Add garlic, ginger, turmeric, cumin, coriander, lemongrass, zest and lime juice and chicken and more oil, if needed. Mix to coat onions and chicken and then add sweet potatoes.
- Add 1 cup of chicken broth and a teaspoon of salt and bring to boil. Let cook until sweet potatoes are soft.
- Add capsicum and cook for a few minutes.
- Add coconut milk. Let simmer to mix flavours.

* If you do not react well to onions and garlic, omit those and use 1 tsp of garlic oil instead.
Nice. Right up my alley. Can’t wait to give it a try.
