Zesty Lemon Asparagus Pasta

One of my most popular spring recipes ever! It's perfect with first-of-the-season asparagus, and its lovely bright green color is so welcome after a long winter. The Tummy Fiber not only adds extra soluble fiber for digestive stability, it also gives the sauce a rich, velvety creaminess that is simply luscious.

Servings: Makes 4


1 lb. fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
zest (grated yellow skin) of 1 fresh lemon
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon Acacia Tummy Fiber
1 lb. angel hair pasta or pasta of choice
1/4 cup soy or rice Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper


Cut asparagus into 1 inch pieces, setting aside tips. In a large stockpot cook asparagus stems in 5-6 quarts boiling water with 1 tablespoon salt until very tender (about 7-9 minutes). Transfer asparagus with a slotted spoon to a blender (do not drain pot). Cook asparagus tips in same boiling water until just tender, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer tips with slotted spoon to colander (do not drain pot).

Puree asparagus stems (not the tips) with lemon zest, olive oil, Tummy Fiber, and 3/4 cup asparagus cooking water until smooth.

Cook pasta in boiling asparagus cooking water until it's still very al dente (firm to the tooth). Reserve 2 cups cooking water and drain pasta. In drained stockpot, add pasta, asparagus tips, asparagus sauce, and 1/2 cup reserved water. Cook over high heat, stirring, about 4-5 minutes until pasta is done to taste and coated with sauce, adding a little more cooking water (1/4 cup at a time) if necessary. Stir in soy/rice Parmesan and salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.

divider When IBS Pain is Worse than Giving Birth, What Helps?

Dear Heather,

I have struggled with unofficially diagnosed IBS my whole life. I realized one day I wasn't just weak, this is not what other people feel when they use the bathroom. I came to this conclusion after I had my son because birth pain is supposed to be the worst pain, but I would rather deliver another baby then go through some of the terrible stomach exacerbations I have been through.

Your Fennel Tummy Tea has been a GODSEND! It truly works, and relief begins within minutes of drinking it. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

The book Eating for IBS is great too! I never realized why I couldn't eat a raw salad (constipated me bad) and why I loved and tolerated well cooked carrots or yams.

Thank you for all your hard work. No one truly knows that take the breath away from you pain unless they have it. The fennel tea is so precious.


Thank you so much, Tiffany! I use the Peppermint Tummy Tea for pain the same way you use the fennel! ~ Heather

divider Science Learns Why Peppermint Helps IBS Pain

A study in the medical journal Pain recently reported that peppermint activates an "anti-pain" channel in the colon. This contributes to relief of pain from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

"Our research shows that peppermint acts through a specific anti-pain channel called TRPM8 to reduce pain-sensing fibers, particularly those activated by mustard and chili," researcher Dr. Stuart Brierley said.

"This is potentially the first step in determining a new type of mainstream clinical treatment for irritable bowel syndrome. This is a debilitating condition and affects many people on a daily basis, particularly women, who are twice as likely to experience irritable bowel syndrome," Brierley added.

Peppermint is often recommended by alternative medicine practitioners as a treatment for irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS. Go here for full research article. Did you catch our January Newsletter to literally see why Peppermint Tummy Tea is so special for IBS pain?
