the candida diet IV

Updated on May 15, 2008

More Recipes for the Candida Diet

Here are more great recipes for a Candida Free Diet. My list keeps growing, and you guys are asking for more so I will keep publishing more great recipes. So let the cookbook grow.

Griddle Bread

Bread Substitue

Griddle Bread

Recipe #1

1/3 C Water

1/4 C Brown teff flour

Sesame oil (as needed)

Optional Intedients:

pinch of sea salt

3 sprinkles of ground cumin

1 T hulled sesame seeds (add additional 1-2 teaspoons of water)

Recipe #2

1/3 C Water

1/4 C White Buckwheat flour (or legume flours)

safflower oil (as needed)


1 - 2 pinches of sea salt

3 sprinkles of cayenne pepper

1 T chopped pumpkin seeds

Preheat griddle. Griddle is hot enough when water dances when sprinkled on surface. Lightly oil after preheating. I use a well seasoned cast iron griddle. Recipe has also been tested using an electric, teflon-coated griddle set between 375 and 400 F.

Measure water in glass 1 Cup measure. Add flour and optional ingredients. Wisk together.

Stir batter and pour onto griddle in widening rings to create desired size. Use approximately 1/4 cup batter for 5" size. Cook for length of time indicated (below). Turn and cook for length of time indicated for second side(below).




Mediterranean Bean Salad

Mediterranean Bean Salad

3 cups chick peas (already cooked and cooled)

2 purple onions, chopped in rings

1/2 cup black olives, chopped

1 tomato, chopped


1/4 cup olive oil

juice of 1 lemon

fresh parsley, chopped

1 tsp cumin

3 cloves garlic, chopped

crushed red pepper to taste

Let beans sit in dressing at least 30 minutes before serving.



1/3 cup pine nuts(raw or roasted)

1/4 cup fresh basil leaves

1/3 cup olive/safflower oil

Lemon juice from 1/2 small lemon

2 cloves of garlic

Sea Salt to taste (optional)

Roast pine nuts under a griller - careful they cook real quick. Place garlic in a food processor and chop. Next add pine nuts and salt, blend. Next add basil and chop. Finish by slowly adding oil and lemon juice until completely mixed. This is great over chicken, allowable noodles, salad green, or spagehtti squash.



These balls can be served in a pita bread with fresh vegetables, and tahini sauce as topping (see recipe below). These falafel are baked instead of fried which makes them lower in fat than traditional falafel. If you have any leftovers, they can be frozen. You can also flatten them and eat as a 'bean burger'.

3 Cups cooked garbanzo beans

1 small onion, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, finely chopped (I use more)

1/4 cup minced fresh parsley

3 tablespoons fresh ground flax seeds

1 teaspoon paprika

1 T Braggs Liquid Amino sauce

2 Tablespoons wheat germ (if avoiding wheat, you can use oat bran)

1/4 Cup whole grain flour of your choice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor, or mash in a bowl and mix well. With wet hands, form the mixture into 1-inch balls. Bake on a lightly oiled cookie sheet for 10 minutes on one side, then roll over and bake 10 minutes on the other side.

18 carbohydrates per serving (appx. 2 balls)

Lemon Tahini Sauce Recipe Below!

Lemon Tahini Sauce

Lemon Tahini

I love this dressing on salads, veggie burgers, and as a vegetable dip.

In food processor:

2 1/2 stocks celery with leaves

1/4 green *pepper

1/2 medium onion

2 garlic cloves

1/2 C Braggs Liquid Aminos

3/4 C tahini

1/2 C lemon juice

3/4 C olive oil

1/4 T white pepper

Avocado Stuffed with Salmon

Avocado Stuffed with Salmon

1 whole big avocado

5-7 oz.raw natural salmon, not smoked

1 tablespoon of chopped red onion

1 - 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh basil

1/2 garlic clove mashed

3 or 4 chopped black olives

2 tablespoons olive oil

Sea salt to taste (optional)

Cut the avocados, the long way, remove the seed, and with a tablespoon take out of the peel each half, take care with no break the halfs. Cut the bottom of each half so it can be sit in a dish without moving, aprox 1/2 inch or less. Place the raw salmon in a food processor, or cut it very, very thinny with a knife. Mash the the avocados and mix very well with all the ingredients, including the oil and the salmon, salt to taste and put the mix over the two halfs of avocado, refrigerate 10 to 15 minutes, before eating. Serve with big tomato slices dressed with olive oil, lemon and salt.

You can use also some homemade mayonnaise or tofu for the mix.

Note: Raw salmon is healthy and delicious but if you don´t like it raw, you can cook it before and use .

in the recipe when it´s cold or use canned tuna for the mix. I personally recommend raw salmon.

Chicken Nuggets

Chicken Nuggets

Almond flour (you can take slivered almonds and grind them

up in a food processor, just don't grind too much or you get

almond butter) or you can use rice flour or any other flour

you prefer.

Chicken breast (skinned and cut into bite size piece)

1 clove of crushed fresh garlic

1/2 teaspoon of sea salt (optional)

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon of dried parsley

1 to 2 beaten eggs

organic tomato sauce (if you want dipping sauce)

Combine nut flour, crushed fresh garlic, sea salt, pepper,

paprika and dried parsley flakes. Dip bite-sized pieces of

chicken in the beaten egg, then roll in the nut-flour mixture.

Fry in olive oil. Warm tomato sauce in a pan or microwave.


Beef and Cabbage

Beef and Cabbage

1 lb. organic hamburger

1 small yellow onion (chopped)

2 cloves of crushed garlic

Small head of cabbage (shredded)

2 carrots (peeled and sliced)

Sea salt to taste

Pepper to taste

1 16oz. can of organic tomatoes (may use stewed or with chilies)

Brown hamburger, add the garlic and onions. Cook until clear. Drain off excess fat. Add cabbage, carrots and seasoning to beef mixture. Cover, cooking on medium until cabbage and carrots are tender. Add tomatoes, cover and simmer 10 minutes to let the flavors blend. You can add your own seasonings to spice this dish up. It is really good. You can also add water and a can of organic tomato soup to make it more like a stew.

      Hi am a recent candida dieter, I really have had to stumble through the cleaning diet as so many people have different advice. I have found your web site of great help and will continue to watch out for your wonderful ideas and help. I find it very difficult to decide who is right and what I should ne eating, but your site has helped a great deal. I have been on my diet for 12 days and already feel the diffrence, but hopefully am on the right track using your ideas and advice.

      I noticed that Sabine Algosaibi is from Bahrain and attempting to do the candida diet. I am also in Bahrain - I was wondering (if you check this comment again!) whether you could give me some advice on how to find what we need on the island!? i.e. supplements, antifungals and ingredients!! (or do you order in?)

      The recipes look good, but, I would really like to know personal opinions about them. I have spent so much $$ on these types of flours and different specialty items in the past only to find out after spending so much time cooking the recipes that they are horrible and I'd rather just eat raw vegetables than take a chance...

      The burning tongue symptoms may last awhile. It is hard to find a doctor that will test you. Usually if you find an alternative doctor, they will. The diet is not for life, usually a you must stay on it for 3 months and then slowly add other foods back into your diet. Just add them slowly and watch for reactions.

      Tammy, do you still answer questions? I was wondering if the burning tongue syndrome I have now is connected to the Candida overgrowth. And How long do I need to stay on the diet?...AND how do I locate a doctor that can and will test me? AND how do I get my Dentist to understand? So far I have lost 15 ugly yeast fat pounds. So this gives some positive encouragement to the diet. Is this diet for life? runshelley at yahoo dot com

      Things will get better. It is really hard at first, but once you start to rid your body of the Candida growth, your body will not want the sugars and drink that you crave now.

      I'm about to go crazy! I want to jump out of my skin. When foods and drink need to be eliminated, I want all that I shouldn't have. How do I stick to the diet?
