The compiled menu is designed to support the stomach and spleen, which is enhanced by the sweet taste, orange and yellow colour, and from food, especially Job’s tears, Hokkaido pumpkin, sage or roasted grain drink. The stated amount is for four people. We wish you good taste!
Dessert (or morning porridge)
Almond cream with Job’s tears and coffee grain
You will need:
200g barley groats
200g Job’s tears
Rice malt or other vegetable syrup
Almond drink (or other cereal milk)
Pearls soaked overnight are boiled in triple water for 1.5 -2 hours with a few grains of salt.
Strain while still warm after cooking and remove the skins. We also strain the teardrop. This creates a very fine cream. If you don’t have a strainer, mix hail with teardrops.
You can influence the popular density by diluting the cream with an almond drink.
We will add to it according to the taste of almond butter and a little rice malt for sweetening.
To decorate, use a teaspoon of rice malt and sprinkle with slices of lightly roasted chopped almonds.
We can also sprinkle with cereal coffee.
This cream is suitable as a dessert, snack, but also as a breakfast porridge. So what’s left after a snack or dessert will last 2 days in the fridge for breakfast.
Because the spleen is also supported by roasted grain drink, treat yourself to quality grain coffee. From our offer, for example, spelt coffee.
Almond butter (or almond paste or almond cream) is an excellent ingredient, both in terms of taste and nutrition. If we have a powerful mixer, the preparation is very simple. Put the almonds in a blender and mix for 30 minutes until the desired paste is formed. If we don’t have it, we can buy almond butter ready-made in health food stores. However, it is not the cheapest. We offer you one “more economical” variant, where you do not need so much powerful mixer, but it is intended for immediate consumption.
You will need:
200g of blanched peeled almonds
Put the white almonds “sweaty” in an oven preheated to 250 ° C. Fat comes out on the surface of the almonds. Pour the hot almonds into the mixer and mix for 10-15 minutes, until a liquid mass is formed. We do not add water or other liquids.
Teardrop (Job’s tears, Japanese Hatomugi, Chinese Yiyiren)
Teardrop is one of the longest-grown cereals in the world. It was the basis of the diet in ancient Egypt, Palestine or Greece. In some areas, its seeds are used to make flour, especially in India, where it has recently been replaced by corn. In China, hail is used to prepare soups similar to ours.
It is roasted with sugar as confectionery or peeled as peanuts. A coffee substitute is prepared from roasted peeled seeds. It is also used as a substitute for millet.
According to the Chinese dietetics, the teardrop is sweet and dull in taste, which nourishes the spleen, lungs and kidneys. Her nature is cold. Its energy enters the meridian of the spleen, lungs, kidneys, but also affects the liver, stomach and large intestine.
