Adzuki bean & Pumpkin Soup – Delicious, Nutritious and Filling!
1 cup Adzuki Beans (soaked overnight)
1 1/2 cups of bite sized Pumpkin pieces (skin on)
1 strip kombu (or 2 sheets of organic nori paper torn into pieces if you can’t find kombu)
Organic cold pressed oil such as avocado oil for sautéing.
Wash and drain adzuki beans and place in a saucepan with kombu then cover with water. Bring to the boil then simmer until softened. Add a pinch of sea salt, simmer another 1/2 hour, adding more water as necessary.
In another saucepan, sauté pumpkin lightly then cover with the beans. Add cold water to cover with a pinch of salt. Cover and cook over low heat until pumpkin is a soft mushy consistency and serve with garnish of shallots and coriander or parsley.
Gomasio – a wonderful condiment – you’ll want to put it on everything!
Sesame seeds are high in calcium and taste so good when lightly toasted.
Gomasio helps to strengthens the digestion, intestinal absorption and blood quality. It is often used to relieve general fatigue and pain such as headache & toothache.
Medicinal : Use 3 part roasted sesame seeds to 1 part roasted sea salt.
For Daily Use: Use 20 part sesame seeds to 1 part salt.
As a Tasty Condiment: Use 20 part sesame seeds to 1 part salt. Add a toasted organic sheet of nori paper cut into tiny pieces.
Roast in dry pan and grind seeds, sea salt (and nori if making as a condiment) in suribachi or mortar and pestle slowly and evenly, crushing all seeds, but not into a powder! You want the nori nice and small or to your liking. Take 1 teaspoon of gomasio once or twice a day for several days. May be used with hot bancha tea, hot water, or simply enjoyed as a condiment sprinkled on brown rice congee, vegetables, or any meal.
