In Liver Rescue, I share how the star ingredients in this recipe can support you and your loved ones in healing. Let’s take a look…
Potatoes: Abundant in amino acids that specifically inhibit viral growth. Potatoes are high in glucose that provides substance to the liver, as it’s precisely what the liver relies on to keep strong. It also helps build up glycogen storage, the very resource that protects us against blood sugar problems, weight gain, fatty liver, and dirty blood syndrome. Potatoes keep the liver grounded and stable, giving us a good constitution. They’re also shunned for being a nightshade, when in truth they have the ability to reverse many varieties of chronic illness.
Radishes: A strong medicine for our livers. The pungent, biting nature of radishes comes from a compilation of chemical compounds, many of them undiscovered, that act as disinfectants to the liver, stopping pathogen infection and boosting the liver’s personalized immune system by increasing its white blood cells’ ability to fight and destroy invaders.
Cucumbers: Allies to the liver due to their ability to hydrate it. Your liver’s always in need of living water that’s filled with minerals and other nutrients, because your liver keeps your blood hydrated. It relies on sources such as cucumber for that living water. This minimizes dirty blood syndrome by helping reduce fats and toxins inside of dirty blood. Phytochemical compounds in cucumbers act as anti-inflammatories to the small intestines and colon. Cucumbers have a gentle blood-thinning ability, too, allowing for detox to occur naturally, without obstruction.
Potato Pancakes With Cucumber Radish Salad
2 large russet potatoes, peeled and grated
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
½ teaspoon sea salt, divided
1 cucumber, thinly sliced
6 radishes, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons raw honey
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon dill, minced
¼ cup chopped chives
¼ teaspoon red pepper (optional)
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Combine the potatoes, arrowroot powder, and ¼ teaspoon sea salt in a mixing bowl and stir to combine.
Line two baking trays with parchment paper. Drop the potatoes onto the parchment paper by the ¼ cup and shape them into circles approximately 3 inches in diameter, using your hands or a cookie cutter as a mold. Press them down until they are approximately ¼ inch thick. Bake the potato pancakes for 20 minutes.
Remove them from the oven and flip the pancakes over by carefully grasping the edges of the parchment paper and flipping the entire sheet. If needed, peel any stuck potato pancakes carefully off the parchment paper and stick them back into the oven on the unlined baking trays for 5 minutes more.
While the potato pancakes are baking, make the Cucumber Radish Salad by combining the sliced cucumber and radishes with the honey, lemon juice, dill, chives, remaining ¼ teaspoon of sea salt, and red pepper in a mixing bowl, tossing gently to combine. Serve the potato pancakes piping hot and garnished with Cucumber Radish Salad.
