We need healthy levels of ferritin for successful treatment for hair loss, so team Absolique are always looking for healthy, complete, nutritional meals that also tick the boxes for food for ferritin, food combining and pH balance. This recipe is a delicious warm dish that is perfect for a vegetarian or vegan main dish or as a side dish for the omnivore.
We personalized the recipe to suit what was at hand and to increase the ferritin rich foods as well as the Vitamin C rich food for ferritin absorption. We swapped out the olive oil for coconut oil to roast the vegetables and pan cook the broccoli. Then we used cold pressed olive oil in the Coconut Tzatziki to be sure the dish was packed full of good fats.
Food for Ferritin Recipe and Treatment for Hair Loss, ‘Warm lentil and root vegetable salad with coconut tzatziki’, Absolique version:
- 1 Cup red lentils
- 4 medium carrots, cut into 5cm pieces
- 1 sweet potato, cut into 5cm pieces
- 6 brussels sprouts halved
- 1 small head broccoli, slice from stem end into thick steaks
- 3 teaspoons ground cumin
- 3 teaspoons ground coriander
- 1 teaspoon chilli powder
- Himalayan pink salt & pepper
- Coconut oil to toss vegetables and pan cook broccoli
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 1 ½ cups chopped fresh herbs – mint, coriander, parsley
See the link to recipe below for instructions and note how we have swapped and added to the original recipe to make it more nutritious and suit the current vegetable season. We pan fried the broccoli steaks for a point of difference and they turned out amazing. Be sure to save the florets and stems to use in another dish. The lemon juice and chopped herbs should be added just before serving.
The Coconut Tzatziki was a lovely, fresh compliment to the warm dish, served alongside, but is a standalone dish, totally indulgent. See link to recipe for ingredients and instructions and save it somewhere safe! Other additions I made to the salad just before serving were; chopped rocket, sundried tomatoes and pumpkin seeds. Have a play with the recipe and enjoy!
