anti-inflammatory dinners: one-pot wonder meat, rice, and veggies

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Low-Histamine, Anti-Inflammatory, Gut-Healing. 


  • 2 yellow squashes (chopped)
  • 2T extra-virgin organic olive oil
  • 1 LB ground turkey
  • 2 C rice
  • 4 C low sodium or unsalted chicken broth ** (Can also use bone broth).
  • 2 eggs (optional, I don’t have a histamine issue with eggs but some people do)
  • 1/2 medium sweet onion (chopped)
  • 3T garlic salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste) ** (Black pepper can release histamine, not recommended if you have histamine issues)
  • Pinch of allspice
  • 2T seasoned salt (to taste and based on dietary needs)
  • Parsley (to taste/optional. Great for gut health!)

Notes: This is a loose play on an Arabic dish (heshwe) that is great for realigning your gut, detoxing your histamine bucket, and very healthy/well-rounded use of calories for what you intake.


  1. Get the olive oil in the bottom of a soup-pot (won’t spill over when rice expands) or high-walled sautee pan. Brown the ground turkey with your chopped sweet onion until it is fully cooked.
  2. Add in your rice, chicken broth, squash and seasonings. If you choose to add parsley, this would be where you add it.
  3. Place the lid on your pot and set the heat to medium to impart the flavors into the rice and squash, slow-cooking style. You will need to let this sit, stirring occasionally, until the rice is cooked and the liquid is gone.* (Be careful – dependng on the efficiency of your stove or what broth you use, you may need to add a little water/oil mixture to keep it from sticking and burning to your pot. Monitor every time you stir to make sure the liquid content is adequate.)
  4. Once the rice is cooked, taste and season accordingly to your style of cooking. Add the eggs. Stir until eggs are cooked and incorporated.
  5. Serve! Best served hot.
