  • Nutrition Tip

    This dish has great flavor with the addition of grated ginger, a root that has many beneficial effects. Ginger has been found to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. In fact, over 50 antioxidants have been identified in ginger.

    Ginger may also help to lessen chemotherapy-associated nausea. If nausea is a concern, try adding ginger to tea (add 1 tablespoon each of ginger root and lemon to hot water) or to soups (like carrot), as well as dishes like this one.
