Why We Love This Dish?

Detox goes beyond the usual green juices and salads. Our stir-fry is crafted to support the liver, kidneys, and colon with the nutrients they need for optimal detoxification. Traditional stir-fries may lean heavily on refined carbs, but our grain-free version is packed with vegetables rich in folate, sulfur, vitamins, and minerals, promoting glutathione production, a crucial antioxidant for combating free radicals, that why we call it the ultimate Detox Grain-Free Stir-Fry Recipe.

Preparation:

  1. Cut the cauliflower into florets and mix in a food processor until you reach a rice texture and reserve.
  2. Wash all the vegetables in water + baking soda (1tbsp/liter) for 15 minutes. Then Prepare the vegetables and reserve in a large bowl.
  3. Heat the 2 tbsp coconut oil into a large wok until hot then add the vegetables to the wok and cook until fragrant or until the vegetables are tender, stirring frequently, for 3 to 5 minutes. Reserve in a bowl.
  4. Add the remaining 1 tbsp of coconut oil to the pan. Add the cauliflower rice to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is soft, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Make the sauce with tamari, chili-garlic sauce, lime juice and ginger.
  6. Pour the cook vegetables back into the pan with the sauce. Taste/Adjust seasoning.
  7. Divide the stir-fry into individual bowls. Garnish and serve

Allergy info: soy.

Protein Options: You can add the protein of your choice: GMO-free tofu, bean sprouts, scrambled eggs, cooked prawns at the same time as the cauliflower rice.

Serving Suggestions: Perfect as a standalone meal or as part of a detox plan, this stir-fry is best enjoyed fresh but can also be stored for later use.

Why Organic?

Choosing organic ingredients is crucial for minimizing exposure to pesticides and maximizing nutrient intake. If organic is out of reach, washing your produce in a baking soda solution can effectively remove residues, ensuring your Detox Grain-Free Stir-Fry Recipe is as clean as it is delicious.

The Science of Detoxification in Ingredients

In our Detox Grain-Free Stir-Fry Recipe, each ingredient is chosen not only for its flavor but also for its specific role in the body’s detoxification process:

  • Cauliflower: As a cruciferous vegetable, cauliflower is rich in glucosinolates which are sulfur-containing compounds that help boost the body’s detoxification enzymes. These enzymes assist in breaking down toxins for elimination.
  • Garlic and Onions: Both are known for their high sulfur content, which helps increase the production of glutathione, an essential detoxifying antioxidant. They also have antibacterial and antiviral properties.
  • Ginger: This root has compounds that stimulate digestion and circulation, two processes critical for detoxification. It’s also known for its anti-inflammatory effects.
  • Green Vegetables (Kale, Leek, Brussels Sprouts): Green veggies are abundant in chlorophyll, which has been suggested to bind to toxins and help remove them from the body. They’re also high in fiber, which aids in regular bowel movements, a key component of detox.
  • Bell Peppers and Carrots: These vegetables are loaded with beta-carotene, vitamin C, and other antioxidants that support the immune system and liver health.
  • Coconut Oil: Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) in coconut oil are easily absorbed and may support metabolism, which is beneficial during detox when the body is flushing out toxins.
  • Tamari Sauce: A fermented soy product that adds not only flavor but also beneficial probiotics to support gut health.
  • Chili-Garlic Sauce: Capsaicin in chili can boost metabolism, while garlic’s allicin supports the immune system and liver enzymes.
  • Lime: High in vitamin C, lime helps convert toxins into a water-soluble form that can be easily excreted from the body.
  • Coriander: This herb has been traditionally used for its detoxifying properties and may help remove heavy metals from the body.

The choice of these ingredients is intentional to support the body’s natural detox pathways, particularly the liver, which is central to the detoxification process. The combination of these foods provides a range of nutrients that work in synergy to cleanse and rejuvenate the body.
