Coriander Chelation Pesto

I've just finished making the most easy cilantro, or 'coriander' as we call it, PESTO! Best thing about this coriander chelation recipe is that it is not only simple to make but really YUMMY.

Nourishing yourself with pesto

It's also a 'natural medicine' concoction which helps to remove heavy metals from the body I was told :) BRILLIANT for anyone with high mercury levels in the blood, hormonal imbalances, cancer, thyroid problems, neurological disturbances, learning problems, depression, food allergies, parasites, etc etc. this could help the process. I obtained the recipe from my sister-in-law years ago, who runs a renowned Health Retreat in Australia. Apparently one lady had such high blood pressure due to severe mercury poisoning, had her blood pressure return to normal after eating 2 teaspoons of this pesto daily for only a week. So whether you need to detox your body from heavy metals or just wish to use it as a preventative measure, 2 teaspoons a day is all you need to feel the benefits.

Serves: 10

Prep time: 
Total time: 

Ingredients
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • ⅓ cup brazil nuts (selenium)
  • ⅓ cup sunflower seeds (cysteine)
  • ⅓ cup pumpkin seeds (zinc, magnesium)
  • 2-3 cups packed fresh coriander (Vitamin A)
  • ⅔ cup flaxseed oil (omega rich fats) (I used hemp oil today)
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice (Vitamin C) (I replaced 1 Tbsp with apple cider)
  • 1 teaspoon celtic or himalayan salt (pink salt) (may use Japanese Miso)

Instructions
  1. Pile everything into a blender & BLEND until fairly smooth.
  2. Add more salt if you want to & blend again.
  3. Otherwise simply store your delicious pesto in glass jars (dark glass is best), in the fridge.
  4. It freezes well, so you can buy plenty of coriander in season & freeze it for up to six months.

 

You could eat it this pesto three times a year, for a week at a time, to cleanse your body of heavy metals. Tastes soo good on toast, with baked potatoes or pasta, with poached eggs, I even love it as a serving addition to bowls of soup!

Food by Lonneke: Gazpacho

Gazpacho is easy to make, it is a great raw dish for when you need to cool off a bit.

My Jamaican vegan dinner!

Jamaican vegan dinnerI made this dinner the other day as I love Jamaican food, but I wanted a vegan twist.

You need the following organic ingredients for this dish for 2 people:

*1 piece of seitan sliced into pieces

*2 plantains or bananas

*400 grams of brown rice

*1 can of black beans

*coconut flakes

for the "jerk" seasoning:

* 2 cloves of garlic

* 2 tablespoons of maple syrup

* 4 tablespoons of tamari

* half an onion

* a piece of fresh ginger as big as your thumb

* 1 teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper

* 1 table spoon of dried thyme

* 2 table spoons of olive oil

* 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

* 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg

* lemon juice

* a few leaves of fresh cilantro

*frying oil (I prefer coconut oil or tea oil)

How to make:

Grind all ingredients for the  "jerk" seasoning. (you can add ingredients for your own favorite flavor) Rub it on the seitan pieces. Let it sit for about 1 to 2 hours.

Rice and beans: Cook the rice and drain. Drain and rinse the black beans from the can (if you don't rinse the beans you are more likely to get gas after eating.) Mix the drained & cooked rice with the black beans.

Plantain (or banana). this to add a sweet touch. Cut the plantain in slices of the size of your thumb. Put in a pan with enough cooking oil so you can fry them until they become soft. Sprinkle coconut flakes over it.

Seitan: drain the seitan from the jerk seasoning but keep the leftover. Grill the seitan in a pan until hot and tender. Add the seasoning at the end for a few minutes to heat up.

Serve hot. Add fresh cilantro, Enjoy!

Love, Lonneke

 

 


cilantro soup

Coriander Spinach and Zucchini soup recipe

Hello all: Fall is here! So time for nurturing, warming soups.

The recipe is below.

Just note I add ricotta for some smoothing texture and taste, but you don't have to. I like to add it instead of cream, it tastes great and not so bad for you. Don't we all like that? :)
