Mung Bean, Carrot and Broccoli Pancakes

My daughter remarked immediately after tasting these how much they reminded her of Asian street food. I agree. The best part is they are SIBO friendly, very filling and loaded with protein and goodness for your digestive system. Sprouting beans is easy. Rinse beans in cold water and then soak overnight. Rinse in the morning…

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…

Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m borrowing this recipe from the lovely ladies at Nourishing Club  here in Sydney. I’ve made these cookies several times now and they consistently turn out excellent. Perfect when you’re craving a sweet and perhaps a buttery pastry…it does the trick. They firm up when cooled but are still soft and chewy. I can’t recommend them…

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…
