Milla has a fever and a headache.

Question: What do you do with a Veggie Kid with a fever…

Moses has "Snowhill Rash"

Question(con’t): …or a big owey??

Answer: According to Capital Health you can treat with Acetaminophen (aka Tempra or Tylenol) or Ibuprofen (aka Advil or Motrin) in combination with a series of other methods.

IS THAT REALLY THE ANSWER FOR ALL OF US?

Most medicines are combined with glycerine.  As you know Glycerin is an animal bi-product.  My Veggie kids don’t eat Glycerin.

So I have found an alternative.

NO GLYCERINE!

“FEVER REDUCER/PAIN RELIEVER”…

CHEWABLE TABLETS

Faker!

Anyone out there have any fun remedies?

NDIZI MBIVU – Sweet Cardamom Plantain

Creamy goodness

Ingredients:

3 Ripe Plantain Banana

2 cups water

1 1/2 cups Coconut milk

1/8 tsp (2 pinches) ground cardamom

Don’t be afraid of the black banana!

The blacker the Plantain the better!  The softer they are the more sweet they are.  BUT yellow, like this one, works too(it just has to boil longer to get soft and more sugar to sweeten the recipe).

Recipe:

Peel plantains.Make sure to scrape the banana, to remove stringy banana bits.

Peel and scrape plantain

Or alternatively cut into the skin and outer flesh of the plantain.

To avoid stringy bits in the sauce, instead of peeling you can cut off the skin and outer flesh of the Plantain banana.

Cut Plantain in half and then half again. Cut plantain length wise to expose seeds.

slice banana length wise exposing inside (seeds) of plantain

Remove seeds and core (It is hard and unpleasant in the sauce)

Remove core

Boil in 2 cups of water for 10 minutes.

Boil

Add coconut milk, sugar and cardamom.

Use finely ground cardamom!

Reduce heat and let simmer for 15 minutes.

Simmer for 15 minutes

Or until you have a creamy consistency.

Creamy goodness

Serve with Coconut Rice or Chapati or on its own.

Serving Size:

3 adult sides

Preparation Time:

45 min.
