- 6 litres of cold, filtered water or enough to cover the chicken (I recommend using a very large pot so you get lots of broth).
- 2- 3 FRESH organic chicken carcasses and skin-less chicken meat (1kg of chicken in total). (skinless chicken is necessary to reduce histamines)
- 2 onions, quartered (if salicylate intolerant, use leeks and spring onions)
- 1-2 carrot, quartered (if salicylate intolerant, use swede)
- 3 sticks of celery
- Several sprigs of fresh thyme (omit if salicylate intolerant)
- A bunch of parsley
- A generous pinch of celtic, rock, Himalayan or sea salt
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (omit if salicylate intolerant)
- Place the meat, water and vinegar in a large saucepan, cover with a lid and let stand for 30 minutes. This will give time to the vinegar to start drawing minerals from the bones into the water.
- Bring to the boil.
- Over the next half hour, a foam-like scum will rise to the surface. Skim it several times.
- When no more foam is surfacing, add the vegetables, thyme and and salt and reduce heat to simmer.
- Cook for 2-4 hours.
- Ten minutes before the end add the parsley. This will increase the mineral content of the broth.
- After cooking, remove carcasses and veggies with slotted spoon and strain into a container.
- The broth can then be stored in pint-sized glass containers in the fridge. Chill well before freezing.
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice (from 1/2 a lemon) or apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1 medium clove garlic, minced
- Fresh dill (omit for regular mayo)
- 1 cup olive oil or for those with sensitivities use rice-bran oil
- Salt to taste
- Place egg yolk, lemon juice, and mustard in the bottom of container or jar that just fits the head of your stick blender. It is important that the egg/lemon juice mixture reaches the blades for this to work. If the mixture does not reach the blades, double the recipe before attempting.
- Add garlic and dill if using. Pour oil on top and allow to settle for 15 seconds. Place head of stick blender at the bottom of the container or jar and turn it on high speed. Do not pulse or move the head. As mayonnaise forms, slowly lift the head of the stick blender until all the oil has emulsified. Season mayonnaise to taste with salt. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

- 8 large cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 5-6 cups cauliflower florets
- 6-7 cups vegetable broth or water
- 1 teaspoon salt (more to taste)
- ½ teaspoon pepper (more to taste)
- ½ cup milk (more to taste). You can use any kind of milk including almond, rice or oat milk.
- Saute the minced garlic with the butter in a large frypan over a low heat. Cook for several minutes or until the garlic is soft and fragrant but not browned (browned or burnt garlic will taste bitter). Remove from heat and set aside.
- Bring the water or vegetable broth to a boil in a large pot. Add the cauliflower and cook, covered, for 7-10 minutes or until cauliflower is fork tender. Do not drain.
- Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cauliflower pieces to the blender. Add 1 cup vegetable broth or cooking liquid, sauteed garlic/butter, salt, pepper, and milk. Blend or puree for several minutes until the sauce is very smooth, adding more broth or milk depending on how thick you want the sauce. You may have to do this in batches depending on the size of your blender. Serve hot! If the sauce starts to look dry, add a few drops of water, milk, or olive oil.
- 1 head cauliflower, riced
- 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella or a hard Goat’s or Sheep’s milk cheese
- 1/2 cup shaved Parmesan cheese
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 tablespoon freshly minced garlic
- 1/2 tablespoon freshly chopped basil
- 1/2 tablespoon freshly chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 3/4 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese (or grated Goat’s or Sheep’s milk cheese)
- Preheat oven to 220C
- Chop the cauliflower florets into chunks and steam them in a steamer or on the stove until slightly soft for 15 minutes. Grate or process in a blender to resemble rice. Alternatively, grate cauliflower or process cauliflower and cook as cauliflower rice. See recipe here; https://equilibriumnaturalhealth.com/2017/04/04/cauliflower-rice-paleo-g-f-low-carb/
- One large head should produce approximately 3 cups of riced cauliflower.
To Make the Bread:
- Place baking paper over a baking tray or pizza stone
- Wring out as much water from the cauliflower rice as possible
- In a medium bowl, stir together the cauliflower, Parmesan, Mozzarella (or Goats or Sheep’s milk cheese) and egg. Add basil, parsley, oregano, crushed garlic and salt & pepper and mix together to combine.
- Transfer to the baking tray or pizza stone, and using your hands, pat out into a large rectangle
- Bake at 220C for 15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and turned golden.
Remove from oven.
- Slice and serve!
- 2 medium to large beetroots, scrubbed and cut into chunks
- 1 small onion
- cloves garlic, peeled and quartered
- 1/4 lemon, juiced
- 1/2 tsp Garam masala powder* (optional)
- 1 tsp paprika
- Salt & Pepper
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- Olive oil
- (1/2 hot chilli, halved long ways)
(* If you don’t have garam masala, you can replace it with 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/8 teaspoon ground coriander, 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon & 1/8 teaspoon paprika)
- Pre-heat oven to 180C
- Place a piece of foil (long enough to wrap your ingredients in, so probably a bit longer than a roasting dish) on the table ready for your beetroot.
- Cut the stems off and scrub the beets carefully to remove dirt and most of the skin. Cut beetroot into chunks and place on the piece of foil.
- Peel onion and garlic, cut into chunks and place on the beetroot. (If you want your dip to have a bit of heat to it, cut a hot chilli in half long ways and add in.)
- Season with salt & pepper, drizzle with olive oil and squeeze on a bit of lemon juice.
- Wrap the foil carefully into a long parcel, place parcel in a roasting dish and roast until done (roughly 90 mins, check with a fork).
- When the beetroot is roasted soft, blend the ingredients until smooth. (I used a wand mixer, but blender would work just as well.)
- Add in olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, garam masala, paprika and blend together.
- Season with salt & pepper and adjust spices until right.
- Refrigerate overnight and serve cold!
