Sweet potato patties with herb sauce and smoked char

The days are quite busy at our office right now. In progress: a brand new online course with an AIP diet and a new cookbook with healing recipes. I want to share one of the recipes from the new cookbook exclusively with our Food Pharmacy readers. Char with sweet potato patties and a ginger herb sauce.

After almost a year’s work it’s finally time to launch our new online course. In this online course you can learn everything about the autoimmune diet, AIP, and at the same time get started with weekly menus. The first edition will be in Swedish, but there will be an English version out soon too.

Last week was a happy one, as I signed the contract for a new cookbook.

More about the book later, but for you to get an idea of the books content, I will share a mouth-watering recipe from the book today.  

Char is a tasty fatty fish, full of vitamin D, B12 and omega 3. Both sweet potato and carrot contain beta carotene, which is converted to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is essentialfor the eyes, skin and the mucous membrane in the gut.
