Got Beans?

Beans tend to be hard, heavy, rough, dry and cooling through the lens of Ayurveda. They are best suited for balancing pitta and kapha, however they are very hard to digest for vata and/or those new to incorporating beans into their diet.

Vata: Best to eat in soup due to the added moisture and warmth.

If you choose to use dry beans vs pre-cooked canned beans you must pre-soak overnight and cook for a minimum of 1 hour.

Share with us your favorite dish using beans…

Spaghetti Squash ~

Spaghetti Squash ~

Don’t you just love Spaghetti Squash?

It’s that big yellow thing in the produce aisle that you quizzically look at and think – “what is that” and “how do you cook it”?

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC has a favorite spaghetti squash dish and it’s so easy to make.

Prep Time: 1 hr.
Servings: 2 – 4

Ingredients:
1 lg. spaghetti squash
1/2 cup water, plus more as needed

Preheat oven to 375. Pour the water into a 13×9 inch glass baking dish. Cut the ends off the squash and discard. Cut the squash in 1/2 lengthwise. Remove the seeds. Place each 1/2 cut-side down in the prepared pan. Bake for 45 min., or until the squash is fork-tender, adding another 1/2 cup water if necessary to prevent the squash from burning. Let cool for 5 to 10 min. The flesh will break into spaghetti-like strands as you scrape it out with a fork.

Serve with Olive Oil, salt and pepper or top with Pesto Chutney – so yummy!

Asparagus Risotto ~

Asparagus Risotto ~

Love asparagus?  Here is one of Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC favorite.  Let us know what you think…

Traditonal risotto is made using arborio rice, which is white and glutinous and produces a very creamy rice dish. The trick to making a creamy and tasty brown rice risotto is to use short grain rice and lots of veggie stock.

3/4 cup short grain brown rice
2 cups vegetable or mushroom stock
1 Tbsp each butter (or ghee) and olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 red onion, chopped
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp dried basil
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and chopped
black pepper
grated parmesan or reggiano cheese

In a medium, heavy pot, heat the butter (or ghee) and olive oil.  Add onions, garlic and red pepper flakes, sauteeing until soft. Stir in rice, basil and half the stock. Let simmer covered on medium for 20 minutes, then add remaining stock plus asparagus. Stir well, cover, and let cook until all the liquid is absorbed and rice is creamy (not firm or dry), about another half hour. If needed, cook in another 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup of stock to reach the right consistency. Stir in parmesan to taste and grind in some black pepper. Serves 2.

NOTE: Ayurvedically, cheese is not recommended as it is difficult to digest, but it also purports that black pepper helps make it more digestible.

  • We make our own Ghee and it’s for sale – best out there.

FOR INDIVIDUAL DOSHAS
Great for all doshas. Pittas, omit or minimize garlic, dried basil, and red pepper flakes; Kaphas, omit or reduce butter and oil to 1 tsp each.

Squash Pancakes ~

Squash Pancakes ~

Looking for something to try for lunch or dinner? Fall is a perfect time of year to eat root veggies. So let’s get creative and bring a breakfast staple into the day

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC loves Squash Pancakes as they are easy to make help us to stay balanced in the dryness of Fall and Winter.

Squash Pancake
Prep: 20 min
Cooking time: 5 min
Cooking Tip: Cook the pancake on a cast iron pan – it won’t stick.

Ingredients:
1 c rice flour
1/4 c cream of rice
1 medium piece of squash
3 tbsp olive oil
1/4 c of grated coconut
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 to 1 c of water
2 tbsp of chopped cilantro

Wash the squash and grate it.
In a large mixing bowl mix rice, cream of rice, grated squash, grated coconut, cilantro, salt and 1 tbsp oil. Mix all the ingredients very well. Add water to make a thick batter. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes. Heat a cast-iron skillet or non-stick frying pan. With your hands, take some batter and place it on the pan. With repeated strokes, using your fingers spread the batter into 3/4 cm thick round pancake. Cook for two minutes. Flip the pancake over and cook for another three minutes.

Serve warm…add some chutney on top or eat as is and add some warm arugula or spinach as a side. Enjoy!
