Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Ginger Chicken Soup with Rainbow Carrots

Ginger Chicken Soup with Rainbow Carrots__No Sugarless Gum

Since being diagnosed with SIBO, this has become one of my favorite meals.  It’s packed with delicious chicken, vegetables, healing ginger and turmeric.  The shredded chicken helps trick my brain into thinking there’s some sort of noodle situation happening, and the vegetables are well cooked for easy digestion!

Rainbow carrots are so beautiful, but they’re not just pretty to look at.  Each one (usually there are red, yellow, purple, white, and of course, orange) has different nutritional properties and may help prevent things from cancer to heart disease.

Servings: about 8
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 3 1/2 hours


  • 2 lbs chicken drumsticks
  • 2 tablespoons of sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of turmeric
  • 11 cups of water
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 bunch of rainbow carrots
  • 1 bunch of broccoli
  • 1/2 piece of fresh ginger


In a large pot, combine the chicken drumsticks, salt, pepper, turmeric, and water.

Bring to a boil then cover and let simmer for 3 hours.

During this time you can cut the vegetables and grate the ginger.

Remove the drumsticks from broth to let cool.

Add in the chicken breasts, vegetables, and ginger.

Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 1/2 hour.

When the drumsticks are cool enough to handle, separate meat from the bone and store in the fridge.

After soup is done, shred the chicken breasts using a couple forks or your fingers.

Return all chicken to the pot.

Elimination Diet safe: Yes! (Just remove the broccoli)
