Beet and Asparagus Rice

Simply Roasted Purple Cauliflower & Sweet Potato (An acid reflux friendly recipe)

I just love fall – look at the gorgeous colors of these vegetables. I find the simplest way to cook these veggies is with minimal intervention so I just toss them with a little olive oil, salt & pepper and roast them. Click here to print recipe.

Tori/ Dudhi Muthias (Zucchini/Bottle Gourd Cakes)

Muthias are one of my favorite Gujarati snacks. They are steamed cakes made with a combination of healthy flours such as semolina, whole wheat, chickpea flour and so on combined with grated bottle gourd or zucchini. I make these all the time – it’s an acid friendly food – you just have to omit the chili from this recipe.

I learned this recipe from our family friend Neha Mazumdar who makes some of the best Muthias. This dish goes really well with a nice mint or coriander chutney.

Broccoli Besan ka Puda (An acid reflux friendly recipe)

Besan ka puda – a spiced savory chickpea crepe – was one of my favorite breakfast dishes growing up. Traditionally it is made really thin (using lots of oil) so it is crispy and so delicious. It is usually eaten with chutney or spicy pickle. I made a healthier – acid friendly version of the recipe sans the chili, where I added lots of minced broccoli and cilantro to the batter. The results were a slightly thicker puda but still really yummy. Click here to print recipe.

Roasted Cauliflower & Kohlrabi (An acid reflux friendly recipe)

I always have cauliflower all cut up and ready to use in my fridge. I mostly end up roasting it as it works as a great side dish with anything from broiled fish to chicken curry. I found some kohlrabi too and sliced it up, added spices and threw it into the mix. The results were a yummy, acid friendly veggie side dish that disappeared in minutes.

Mushroom & Watercress Pesto Pasta  (An acid reflux friendly recipe)

I never imagined I would enjoy a pesto without garlic and lemon but I have to say this recipe is pretty darned good. Hard cheeses are allowed on a low acid diet and the flavor from the pistachios makes this pesto really yummy. Feel free to use any kind of whole grain or gluten free pasta. Click to print recipe.

Zucchini Carrot Celery Soup  (An acid reflux friendly recipe)

Soups are almost always kitchen sink affairs for me. I take anything that is leftover in the fridge and throw it in the pot. Now that I’m avoiding garlic/ onion 😢 I have to find ingredients that are more forgiving. Zucchini is so abundant right now in all the farmers markets and adds such great flavor to any soup.
