Carrot and Ginger Dressing


For 4 people

  • 1 large onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons dried ginger
  • A small handful of coriander leaves (optional)
  • 1 large butternut squash (or other variety of squash or pumpkin)
  • 250 ml soy or almond cream
  • 2 tablespoons oil, preferably olive
  • Salt (optional)


  • Chop the onions and garlic cloves and put them in a large saucepan over medium heat with the oil.
  • Cook, occasionally stirring, until onions become translucent and soft.
  • Add the peeled squash cut into cubes with enough water to just submerge it, season and raise heat to high.
  • Once the soup is boiling, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, occasionally stirring, until the squash is cooked (12–14 minutes).
  • Put the soup in the blender (or leave it in the pan if you squeeze the pieces by hand with a masher), add the cream and blend (or mash) it until smooth and silky.
  • Add the fresh coriander (optional) and ½ to 1 teaspoon of dried ginger per person just before serving.

Préparation et dosage

Ginger should be consumed 3 times daily, during or after each meal:

As a dried powder: 0.5 g to 1 g (equal to ½ to 1 teaspoon) 3 times per day (equal to total daily dose of 1.5 g to 3 g). Same dose if taken in the form of capsules.

As a fresh root: 2.5 g (equal to a 1.5 cm cube) to 5 g 3 times per day (equal to total daily dose of 7.5 g to 15 g).

Note: 1 g dry powder corresponds to 5g fresh root.

To our knowledge, there is no data indicating that it is possible to consume ginger cooked, steamed, stir-fried, or baked without losing its hypoglycaemic activity; we recommend consuming it fresh or in powder form only (if in a dish: add it at the end of the preparation).
