Snotty noses everywhere I look. Especially at school. I’m seeing so many kids who are sick still being fed dairy and wheat. One of the best things to do if your child has a virus is to remove dairy and wheat from their diets.
So I’m going in STRONG. Trying to build my kids immune systems every time I cook.
Did you know 70% of our immune system is in our gut? What we eat literally builds our immune cells into super warrior fighters or weakens our entire immune system.
Love this mash for winter or when kids need an extra boost. High protein, super nourishing and an immune powerhouse. Enjoy! Alisa 🙂[ingredients title=”Ingredients”]
- 1 large sweet potato
- 2 tbs Magic Sprinkles
- 1 can organic butter beans
- 1 small onion
- 3 cloves garlic (avoid cheap white chinese garlic at all costs as is highly toxic and sprayed with some horrible fungicides. Australian purple garlic or Spanish garlic is best!)
- 3 tbs olive oil
- 1/2 tsp nourish me stock (or salt)
- 1 tbs butter or cream (optional)
There are 2 ways to make this: I will try to detail both:
- Peel and cut up sweet potato into cubes and place in a pot of boiling water (I actually don’t peel as my boys are used to a more gritty mash and I love the taste of the skins but peeling with give you a smoother mash if that is what you are used to) add onion and garlic and boil with lid on until sweet potato tender
- Second way to make is to roast sweet potato, onion & garlic in the oven on a tray at 180 degrees until soft
- Remove and drain sweet potato, onion and garlic if boiling and if baking remove from oven
- Open butter beans, drain all liquid and wash with running water. Make sure they are rinsed well
- In a pan lighly cook beans in olive oil with stock or salt
- Put all ingredients in food processor or thermomix and blend until smooth. If too thick add a little cream, butter or some liquid stock.
- Serve and enjoy!
