Healthy Chew Mein

Who else remembers growing up eating Chow Mein? Not only is it cheap and so quick to make. It is a GUT LOVING bowl of goodness.

Cabbage is an AMAZING prebiotic food. Remember prebiotic foods are like fuel for good bacteria, the fibrous carbohydrates they contain help good bacteria to grow within the gut. And for the base of this recipe I used bone broth which is a probiotic and highly nutritious in lots of essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids which support the immune and digestive system.

Enjoy.

Ingredients:

  • 500g mince meat (I personally use turkey)

  • 3 cups chicken broth (or 3 cups of boiling water, with a 1 tsp of chicken stock)

  • 1/2 large cabbage (shredded)

  • 4 sticks of celery (roughly chopped)

  • 2 cups green beans (chopped in half)

  • 2 large onions (diced)

  • 2 garlic cloves (diced)

  • 1 pack of rice noodles

  • 2 tbsp tamari sauce

  • 3 tbsp organic and sugar free tomato sauce

  • 6 shakes pepper

  • 2 tsp salt

  • 2 tsp curry powder


Directions:

  1. In a large pot add chicken broth (or water and stock) and the mince meat and stir well.

  2. Once the mince has started cooking through, add all other ingredients except the rice noodles in.

  3. Stir until boiling, reduce heat and cook for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.

  4. 10 minutes before the chow mien is cooked add in the rice noodles, stir through and allow to cook. Please note - you may need to asdd a splash or two of water in at this point to allow the noodles to cook.
