Be Mine: Vegan Thai Coconut Soup & Luscious Lentil Pate
Join the muppets and me with the Harry Nilsson chorus: "You put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up!"
Celebrating the Inner Healer:
Notes especially to my Soup Subscribers
this 2nd week of February 2011
Thai Coconut Soup
Tangy lime with a hint of warmth from the traditional Thai spices, this is my veggie packed version, complete with poached pear strengthening the lung meridian.
A recent joint study by Thailand's Kasetsart University and Japan's Kyoto and Kinki Universities has found that the ingredients in Tom Yum Gung soup are 100 times more effective in inhibiting cancerous tumor growth than other foods. Scientists are seeking to extract the chemical compounds that are most effective from soup ingredients.
Traditionally, this hot and sour soup includes shrimp, but I substituted tofu. Research also is focusing on edible plants in the region. "The ratio of the cancer pattern in Asians, especially southeast Asians, is very low compared with the pattern in the European and Western countries," Jiwajindra said. In fact, Thais have a much lower incidence of digestive tract cancers than people do in other countries.
An infusion of lemongrass, fresh coconut milk, broth, red onion, leeks, shallots, garlic, carrot, Braggs’ soy mineral sauce, broccalini, broccoli slaw and colorful baby sweet peppers, Please warm gently and garnish with the extra fresh basil and cilantro.
I played affirmations to heal yourself while eating and meditating( and chopping and packing) that are from Macrobiotic teacher, Lino Stanchich’s CD Using Your Mind to Heal Your Body. Sean DiMaria presents the affirmations and visualizations while healing music for health and well-being play. Ask me how to learn more!)
This week I continued being inspired with David Goldstein’s chants and CD ”Kavanot” and leave you with the blessing from Numbers 6:24-26 that he sings. Visit him at hebrewchant.com
May the Holy One bless you and keep you
May G-d’s holy face shine upon you
May the creator’s face be lifted toward you,
May you know true peace Shalom
Buon Apetito!! L'Chaim!! In JOY!! All Blessings of St. Valentine Compassion
If you're giving (or eating) chocolate today, I hope it's free-trade and dairy-free. Supporting (and consuming) slavery doesn't seem to be in the spirit of St. Valentine, who according to legend, risked and lost his life for freedom and truth, and in doing so, kept his heart open and softened to kindness. PPS: Even oprah.com has a vegan starter kit!
