Just in *thyme* for fall, we’ve got a classic dish with a Gerson twist that the whole family can enjoy! So delicious and nutritious, no one will miss the butter.
Recipes from the Gerson Therapy Cookbook (available in hardcopy and e-book format).
GERSON GRAVY | Yield: 2 1/2 cups
- 1/2 yellow onion, diced
- 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- 2 cups Hippocrates Soup Stock*, divided
- 1/2 cup Oat Flour*
- 1/2 cup purified water
- 2 tablespoons minced thyme
- 1 tablespoon minced rosemary
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- Place the onion and garlic on the bottom of a small pot. Cook on medium heat until the onion becomes translucent and starts to steam. Add 1/4 cup Hippocrates Soup Stock if the onion and garlic begin to stick.
- While the onion and garlic cook, dissolve the Oat Flour in 1/2 cup purified water, stirring every few minutes until a paste is formed.
- Once the onion and garlic have cooked for about 5 minutes, stir in thyme and rosemary. Continue cooking for another minute, adding a bit of Hippocrates Soup Stock if needed to prevent onion from sticking.
- Add apple cider vinegar and cook for 2 more minutes.
- Add the remaining Hippocrates Soup Stock, then bring to a very gentle simmer. Leave uncovered.
- Add the Oat Flour mixture and stir. Bring to a slight boil, stirring frequently. After boiling for one minute, turn heat down to a very light simmer. Cook until a desired gravy consistency is reached.
GERSON MASHED POTATOES | Servings: 3-4
- 3 large potatoes, cubed
- Purified Water or Hippocrates Soup Stock*
- 2 bay leaves
- 1/2 cup yogurt (optional, if permitted by Gerson Practitioner)
- 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
- Pinch of fresh thyme and parsley, chopped (optional)
- Place potatoes in a medium pot. Add enough purified water or Hippocrates Soup Stock to cover the potatoes by at least 1/2 inch, then add bay leaves.
- Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer.
- Cook covered until potatoes are soft, approximately 20-25 minutes.
- Strain purified water and bay leaves from potatoes, set aside.
- If using, add yogurt to potatoes. Add the garlic and mash together using a potato masher, or run through a food mill.
- Add a little yogurt, Hippocrates Soup Stock or purified water from cooking potatoes until desired consistency is reached.
- Top with Gerson Gravy and ENJOY!
HIPPOCRATES SOUP STOCK
Liquid strained from Hippocrates Soup before passing through food mill is called Hippocrates Soup Stock.
- Follow directions to prepare Hippocrates Soup, but add as many cups of extra water as the amount you would like to extract for stock. For example, if 2 cups of stock is desired, add an extra 2 cups of purified water to standard Hippocrates Soup recipe.
- Before passing through food mill, remove the extra cups of liquid, using a strainer.
- Store Hippocrates Soup Stock in refrigerator for up to 48 hours.
1 cup rolled oats
Place oats in a food processor or blender and pulse until a fine powder is formed.
