Asparagus & Garlic Scape Soup (AIP, SCD)

Curry Sweet Potato and Asparagus Salad (AIP)

This recipe is inspired by a Nepalese dish from a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Madison, Wisconsin called “tarkari,” which I’ve since learned actually refers generically to spicy vegetable curry originating in the Indian subcontinent (thank you Wikipedia!).

Broccoli and Butternut Squash Soup (AIP, SCD)

Lemongrass & Ginger Daikon Radish Salad (AIP, SCD)

A restricted diet, even one like AIP which doesn’t allow nightshades or seeds, doesn’t need to be bland… if you are creative with the foods you are able to eat! This innovative daikon radish coleslaw has a complex flavor that is equal parts refreshing, sweet, and intense.
