Carrot and coriander stew with pancakes ( grain free, dairy free, sugar free, soya free and low histamine)

I have created a low histamine and mast cell stabilising meal, to help on the journey of healing the body from either histamine intolerance, or mast cell activation syndrome. I have used duck eggs as they are lower in histamine then chicken eggs and often tolerated with a histamine problem, I also used tigernut flour as that seems to be the only flour at the moment that I am tolerating, it is a little gritty, but if you only use a small amount you don’t normally notice it and the flavour of it is actually very delicious. You can always replace the flour with chestnut flour which is low in histamine, cassava flour, or any gluten free flour that you fancy, as mostly grains are low histamine, but at the same time can cause inflammation, so thats why I stay away from them.
