Mushrooms are packed with nutrients and boasts many health benefits as suggested by Meenakshi Nagdeve of Organic Facts. I try to eat some mushrooms at least twice per week, sometimes raw in salads and sometimes cooked. Dinner today, had all the nutrients necessary for health from plant sources ( except B12).. I had a baked potato, sauted mushrooms and a salad consisting of mixed greens, broccoli, purple cabbage, radish, purple onion, ginger, raisin, sweet pepper, cauliflower and carrots with salad dressing, the recipe is below.
- 8 ounces Portobello Mushrooms washed, cleaned and chopped in quarters
- 1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon each, thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning and basil
- salt to taste
- 1/2 medium onion chopped
- 1 clove garlic chopped
- 1/2 medium sweet pepper
- scotch bonnet pepper
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- season mushroom with soy sauce, garlic and onion powder, Italian seasoning and basil
- Saute onion in oil until translucent over medium heat
- add garlic, sweet pepper, salt and scotch bonnet pepper and saute until it starts to stick to the bottom of skillet ( no liquid)
- add mushroom and stir in until small amount of liquid starts to appear ( about 1-2 2 minutes). Remove from heat and serve. If heated too long, mushroom loses its tenderness and produces a lot of liquid.
This can be served with white rice or mixed in with pasta. Delicious!

This batch can make 1 dozen crepes, depending on the size of your skillet.

I make a batch on the weekend and warm the crepes for breakfast during the week. This is quite filling so there is no need for anything else except a cup of tea, coffee (black) or juice. This provides all the nutrients in 1 meal.
Breakfast ” Cereal“
This is an easy and nutritious ‘cereal’ which provides lots of protein, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates and fats, of the good kind, from all natural sources. The enzymes are still intact since nothing in cooked so the nutrients are completely bio-available.
- Berries: strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries (I used grapes in the one shown
- “Milk”: 1/cup raw, unsalted cashew, 1 tablespoon tahini, 1 tablespoon royal jelly in honey (or pure honey) 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup raw pumpkin seed flour( crush seeds in Nutri-bullet)
- 2-4 chopped medjool dates
- Wash berries and place in a cereal bowl
- sprinkle on pumpkin seed flour and add chopped dates
- blend ‘milk’ ingredients in a nutri-bullet until smooth
- pour milk over berries and enjoy
Note that you can blend pumpkin seeds with the ‘milk’ ingredients.
Pasta Salad, A Complete Meal
- 1 box Mueller’s Thin Spaghetti (Hidden Veggie)
- 1 pack extra firm tofu
- 1 cup raw cashew
- 1 inch ginger ( or 1 tbspoon ginger powder)
- 1/2 red sweet pepper
- 1/2 – 1 onion
- 1/2 teaspoon tumeric (optional)
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon each of basil, sage, oregano
- dash of cayenne pepper
- handful of fresh cilantro
- sea salt to taste
- 1/2 cup peanuts
- 1 and 1/2 cups of water
- Break spaghetti into small pieces. (I break into 4) Cook spaghetti according to directions and drain.
- Cut tofu into cubes and sprinkle with salt and pepper allow this to stand for about 20 minutes to an hour . Bake this in an air fryer or oven until it turns color, or you may use it as is.
- Set aside 1/4 of the sweet pepper, peanuts and 1/2 onion then add all other ingredients into a blender or magic bullet and blend to a sauce. Add salt to your taste. Sauce may appear thin but it will thicken once added to spaghetti.
- Chop the rest of sweet pepper and onion into small pieces and add to sauce
- Add sauce, peanuts and tofu to spaghetti and mix together
- Garnish with grape tomatoes, chopped broccoli and lettuce.
Please note that this is a cold dish, heating will destroy the enzymes! Pasta (minus veggies) can be kept in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
Inflammation Reducing Drink
- 1 cup almond or cashew milk
- 1/4 cup tumeric juice ( or 1 tbspn tumeric powder)
- 1/2 tspn powdered ginger ( or freshly grated) or 1 tablespoon juice
- dash of grated nutmeg
- 1/2 tspn cinnamon
- honey to taste (or 1 teaspoon of royal jelly in honey)
- dash of coriander seed powder
- dash of black pepper
- 2 drops of vanilla
Mix all in in a blender or nutri- bullet and drink immediately. It is surprisingly tasty and extremely good to reduce inflammation. Black pepper makes the curcumin more bio-available. Do this 2 – 3 times per day alone or with meals.
I make my own almond or cashew milk. Soak about 20 almonds overnight, add 2 cups water and blend in nutri-bullet. You can strain through a cheese cloth if you wish, but I don’t, I keep the fiber. The cashew does not need to be soaked. Both almond and cashew should be raw in order to get the maximum benefits.
I make my own ginger and tumeric juice by squeezing the fresh tubers in the masticating machine.
