Back to your roots

These recipes give traditional root spices a deliciously modern spin. Perfect for chilly autumn days, they’ll give your immunity a boost, too

Immune-boosting congee

Zoë Lind van’t Hof of Wunder Workshop says: ‘This Asian savoury rice porridge, or congee, is perfect for supporting your immune system. It’s also beautifully warming, hearty and loaded with beneficial super roots like astragalus and Siberian ginseng, which can help boost your resistance to colds and flu. If the astragalus root is still tough and chewy after slow-cooking, remove it before serving. Placing it in a muslin bag, similar to a bouquet garni, makes it easier to take out.’

Prep and cook 1 hour 20 minutes

Serves 4

1.25 litres water

100g short-grain brown rice

20g dried astragalus root pieces

2 tsp Siberian ginseng powder

2 tbsp coconut oil

About Healthy Magazine

Welcome to the October/November issue of healthy. Our nutrition issue is here and in the latest edition, we look at why healthy diet is important for your physical and mental health. Plus, we’ve got some delicious seasonal recipes for you to try. We’ve all heard the phrase: ‘You are what you eat’, but to what extent is that true? Writer Charlotte Haigh attempts to give a definitive answer in our cover story, by looking at the nutrition tips we can all take to improve our health, despite the differences in our genetic makeup. In our recipe section, we’ve got a range of delicious seasonal dishes that are perfect for early autumn, along with immunity-boosting recipes to see you through the colder months. We also revisit the fermenting trend with some tips for having a go yourself. And that’s not all. In addition to our nutrition content, writer Laura Potter takes a thoughtful look at the potentially negative impact of fertility reporting, while controversial expert Ronald Purser gives powerful arguments against mindfulness in our ‘Fresh thinking’ franchise. Find all this and more in the new issue of healthy.
