Samosa traditionally involves serving a savory potato mixture inside a pastry alongside various chutneys for dipping. With this autoimmune protocol version, you get a quick and easy baked veggie dish! You can even top it with some homemade chutney if you like. Taro has a wonderfully potato-like flavor and is my favorite sub for the nightshade plant. If you can’t find taro, you can use white-fleshed sweet potatoes or even turnips instead.
Struggling to Start the Autoimmune Protocol?
Living with chronic illness can be isolating enough without overhauling your lifestyle, often without the full support of family members who don’t want their diets to change. But you don’t have to go through it alone. SAD to AIP in SIX, from Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and author of The Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook Angie Alt, will coach you step-by-step through the transition from the standard American diet (SAD) to the autoimmune protocol (AIP). The six-week course includes coaching from Angie and her team, support from your peers in the program, and reference materials–it’s an incredible bargain compared to private health coaching sessions. If you’re struggling to make the change to the AIP or feeling isolated on your health journey, this is the program for you!
