Coconut Curried Mung Beans

I sprouted these mung beans to adhere with the SIBO diet that I follow. It’s easier on your digestion and full of wonderful nutrients. I’ve been having fun sprouting mung beans lately – creating new and tasty recipes. These have a rich coconut broth with amazing Indian flavour. It’s wonderful served with a side of…

Pumpkin Risotto

A warm and savoury meal your whole family will enjoy. As a very busy mom, I love it when mealtimes are easy. To adhere with the SIBO diet we are limited to 1/2 cup rice and 1/2 cup pumpkin so best not to have a huge portion. Fill your plate with a gorgeous green salad…

Mexican Lentil Soup

A really easy recipe despite the long list of ingredients. Most of us have these things on hand at any given time. If you don’t have capsicum or zucchini or both, it’s ok, leave them out. You could also sub in 1/2 cup diced celery. The carrots and green onions are the base along with…

Vegan Aubergine Burani

I love Sally Banks and her cookbook, Veggistan – vegetarian recipes from the Middle East. This dish is one of our family’s favourites but one that I haven’t been able to enjoy since my SIBO diagnosis. It originates from Afghanistan and is a warm eggplant dish layered with a yogurt sauce. I love to find…

Curried Sprouted Mung Beans

Sprouting beans is easy and you don’t need any special kitchen equipment. I soak mine in a bowl of water overnight. The next morning, I drain and rinse them and place them in a metal colander. Cover that with a light towel and leave it to sit for two days. I rinse the beans with…

Red and Yellow Lentil Dal

Although canned lentils are recommended for a SIBO restricted diet, I find that small 1/2 – 1 cup portions of this dal, work for me without any digestive issue. I didn’t reintroduce lentils until 3-4 months after a very strict SIBO bi-phasic diet protocol and at that time only 1/2 cup servings. I would recommend…

Greens and Avo Soup

I’ve been making this recipe from Dr Mark Hyman for many years now but stopped because it wasn’t SIBO friendly. The original recipe used spinach as the base and we are only allowed like 12 leaves at a time so this became impossible. I recently reinvented it in a way that’s nutritious, tasty and gut…

Rice Paper Spring Rolls

In our home, we love this colourful meal on a warm summer’s day. It’s so refreshing and so tasty. The time to prep all the veg is a bit time consuming but once you’ve done that, it comes together quite quickly. The ingredients I’ve listed here make 3-4 rolls each for 5 people. 1/2 cup…

Mediterranean Tofu Scramble

This is a perfect main for when you have a container of leftover roasted veg sitting in the fridge. The caramelised flavour of the veggies mixed with herbs, tofu and olives is a welcome treat for breakfast (or anytime.) You could also chop some vegetables and sauté them if you don’t have roasted on hand…
