Here is our recipe for Green Protein. This dish is the most valuable recipe that we prescribe to our patients. It is very simple to make, but takes some practice to get it right. Also, we have a video that shows how to make it: Green Protein Super Food.
Serving Size For One Person
- Green leafy veggies chopped 10-12 oz (little more than a cup)
- Parsley 1/4 a bunch
- Your prescribed spice mixture 1/2 tsp
- Cooling Soma salt 2 pinch
- Pre biotic Ghee 1/2 tsp
- Olive oil 1/2 tsp
- Water 4 oz (1/2 cup)
- 2 oz of either homemade paneer, cooked chicken breast or cooked quinoa
To add even more flavor:
- Ginger chopped 1/2 tsp
- Curry leaves chopped 1 tsp
- Green chilly chopped (if you like spicy) 1/2 tsp
- Add these to the greens if you want to try different taste each time:
- Cilantro chopped 1 tsp
- Fresh basal chopped 1/2 tsp
- Celery chopped 1 tsp
- Mint leaves chopped 1/2 tsp
- In a large sauce pan add the ghee and olive oil, ginger, curry leaves, soma salt, toasted spice mix or mum's masala, and paneer (or alternative protein).
- Heat very lightly, do not fry (very important). On top of this place the all the chopped green veggies with parsley on the very top.
- Cover and let it steam for a few minutes on low heat. When you see the veggies are very bright and shiny and they almost look like they have a neon green color turn off the heat. Pour the whole mix in to a food processor or a blender and add the water. Blend until it is a smooth, creamy bright green sauce - almost like baby food. There should not be any solid or course parts in the sauce.
- When ready to eat squeeze a little lime juice over it.
Have it throughout the day.
- Use as a soup or pour it over salad, over cooked rice and quinoa, over quinoa pasta.
- One way of checking if you have a good batch is to see if the bright green color will stay the whole day.
- You can replace the paneer with cooked white chicken strips or cooked qunioa.
- But make sure the chicken is fully cooked before starting the green protein recipe. To do this by simply boiling the chicken strips in few ounces of water until cooked, about 7-8 minutes.
- Don't re-heat
- Don't eat the next day, must make fresh each day.
- Don't use beef or pork as your protein.
- Don't refrigerate
Mix and Match Green leafy veggies from day to day.
- methi (fenugreek leaves)
- collard greens
- beet greens
Note: always add parsley because it is very high in iron.
