MONSOON RECIPES

1. Nishime (literally means waterless cooking)- have 2-3 times per week at any meal –

The mechanics of this style works like a steam energy in the body providing you with warm yang energy in the abdomen region. Vegetables cook in their own juices; also stabilizes blood sugar levels as it discharges yin foods like soft dairy [ice-cream, cheese].  As I mentioned earlier it works like an internal generator for energy, and gives you steady energy over time.

Ingredients

1 carrot cut into chunks

¼ cabbage cut into wedges

1 onion cut into wedges

¼ cup squash cut into wedges or cubed

Method

Layer vegetables one on top of each other and add ½ inch water

Cover pot and bring to a boil over medium flame until steam is formed

Lower flame and cook for 20 minutes

If water evaporates, you can add some more

When vegetables get tender add a few drops of soy sauce, ginger juice or any seasoning you like

Replace cover for 5 minutes

Remove from gas and let it sit for 5 minutes before serving

2. Pressed salad (have 2-3 times per/week) – this salad is highly recommended daily to keep the gut clean and free of bad bacteria. It is probiotic, and is great to incorporate during the monsoons to strengthen immunity. Also good source of B12.
