    Cauliflower soup with fennel, dill and cereal dumplings

    emointhekitchen Dietetics, but the whole teaching of traditional Chinese medicine is based on the constant balancing of the opposing forces of yin and yang and the effort to restore their balance when there are no extreme fluctuations leading to disease. Food, as one of the strongest everyday influences on our body and mind, should also not have a distinct effect in either direction. Raw food is one of the extremes, especially if it is consumed all year round. At the opposite pole are long baking and drying of food. According to the TCM, each food and method of preparation affects the mechanism of qi flow in our body. Cauliflower soup…

    Armenia Lahmacun

    emointhekitchen Think of Lahmacun, a distinctive Lahamajoun, like a super-thin crispy Turkish dough (or Armenian), complemented by a mixture of ground meat with peppers, tomatoes, fresh herbs and earthy spices.comes from the Arabic “lahma bi’ajeen”, which literally means “dough with meat”. Lahmacun has two different components. Dough and meat icing. Traditionally, Turkish lahmacun is made with minced lamb, but you can also use lean ground beef. What makes the topping special is the combination of flavours. In this lahmacun recipe, I use a food processor to create the topping. Ground lamb (or beef), mixed with sweet red peppers, shallots, garlic, tomato paste, fresh herbs, allspice, cumin, a dash of cinnamon,…

    Instant alleviation of menstrual pain

    emointhekitchen Important notice in the beginning: Don’t use these recommendations if you are experiencing heavy bleeding during your period or if the pain worsens by heat. I had been suffering from dysmenorrhoea for years, ever since my periods started. I had a moment of rest after giving birth, but then everything started again. Conventional methods recommended by gynaecology (hormone therapy) are unacceptable to me for many reasons. When I started to study TCM in 2007, I suddenly spotted the light at the end of the tunnel. Things started to change. Although slowly. From the point of TCM the Liver, Penetrating Vessel and Directing Vessel are responsible for the physiology of…

    Mushrooms – Part One

    emointhekitchen In China and Japan, some types of edible mushrooms have been used and worshipped for over 3,000 years. They are used both in medicine and in the kitchen for their extraordinary properties. In this post, I would like to mention at least three of them. I have chosen these particular mushrooms because they belong to my favourites and are available outside Asia in fresh or dried form for culinary purposes not just as Dietary Supplements. It is noteworthy that mushrooms, unlike most other ingredients commonly used in cooking, have strong effects. To me, they were always more medicine than food. In other words, it is always necessary to consider…

    Armenian Borsch

    emointhekitchen Borsch is usually beet-root based a slightly sour soup popular in Eastern European cuisines. There is an awful lot of ways to cook it. Recipes differ considerably from one another. In every country, borsch is a bit different. Some countries even have several variants of this soup. Here I am mentioning one of the Armenian recipes, which in my opinion is of the most balanced composition. I will not deal with individual ingredients as in most of my other recipes, because this soup is simply an example of combining different kinds of vegetables and meat into one harmonic whole. According to the traditional Chinese medicine approach, I would say that this soup…

    Wheat Congee

    emointhekitchen While rice is the cornerstone of diet in the East. In the West, wheat grains are considered the staff of life. However, by this, we typically mean wheat bread and other baked products. Overconsumption is at least partly responsible for western obesity epidemy. Compared to rice, wheat is more difficult to digest. Negative aspects of wheat are more obvious when eaten as refined flour. We should therefore only consume it in the form of whole grains. However, a person with weak spleen function and a tendency to dampness should avoid even that. Wheat in TCM Of course, even wheat has its use in Chinese medicine and has its own…
