Here are the 5 most delicious gut health drink recipes from the book.

 

Simple Vegetable Broth

Make a simple vegetable soup with tasty ingredients for about 6 servings. And not forget vegetable soup is also ideal for cooking low-FODMAP grains, such as rice and quinoa.

Ingredients:
8 cups of water
1 ear of corn
½ cup scallions, green part only
½ cup leek, green part only
2 carrots, chopped roughly
2 parsnip, chopped roughly
1 medium celery stalk
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon garlic-infused oil

Preparation:
– Heat the garlic-infused oil over medium heat and sauté the scallion and leek greens. Add all the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Once the water is boiling, cover the pot and lower the heat to a low simmer. Cook for at least one hour, or until flavorful.

When the soup is finished, remove the vegetables. Pour the broth into a container to store if you are not using it right away. There will be no layer to remove as in the chicken and beef broths.
