I'm worried about you. Are you planning to over eat on Thanksgiving day? Maybe you think you'll restrain yourself this year but the wonderful food your family has prepared is just too tempting. Then the heartburn or upset stomach follows.
I've found this great chutney recipe that helps improve digestion. You'll love it with just about anything, including chicken, fish and you guessed it, turkey!
Make it ahead of time so you'll have more time to enjoy the day. Happy Thanksgiving!
1/4 c. fresh lemon juice
1/4 c. water
1 bunch fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves and stems
1/4 c. grated coconut
2 T. fresh ginger root, chopped
1 t. honey
1 t. salt
1/4 t. fresh-ground black pepper
In a food processor or blender, blend lemon juice, water, and cilantro until cilantro is chopped fine. Add remaining ingredients and blend until the mixture forms a paste. The chutney will keep in the refrigerator for up to one week.
