Food as Medicine

The nights are cold and smokey from back burns to halt summer fires and I need my special warming, cleansing soup.

First step take myself out to the garden to gather fresh greens.

These include leaves from the beautiful Moringa or Drumstick Tree with all its special nutritional qualities.

Also in my garden at present bok choy, broccoli, red cabbage, and red Kale.



Next one organic onion, some organic garlic and red chilli and turmeric from my own garden.

The onion is diced, the garlic sliced, the turmeric grated and the red chili sliced minus its seeds and inner threads which I find too hot.

Now I chop up some pumpkin, while gently softening the onions, garlic, turmeric and chili in two tablespoons of organic olive oil.

The pumpkin pieces are now added to the pan and coated  before filling the pan up to half way with boiling water.

Finally the shredded greens are added, plus one can of organic chickpeas rinsed in cold water, two tablespoons of coconut aminos which is a great fermented sauce plus salt to taste.

And there you have it, the soup I am craving at present and which leaves me feeling refreshed and energized.

I look forward to having it for dinner tonight.
