Whole grains in whole form: Should be 50 -60%of daily consumption of foods.
In pressure cooking the ratio of grain to water should be about 1:2. Use a pinch of sea salt per cup of uncooked grain.
first day - prepare pressure cooked short grain brown rice,
2nd day - prepare short grain brown rice with 10 to 20% millet in same pot.
3rd day- prepare short grain brown rice with 10 - 20% barley
4th day- Prepare short grain brown rice with 10 - 20% adzuke beans or lentils.
5th day _ Prepare plain brown rice again.
Then repeat pattern. This gives a great variety.
You can make a morning porridge with left over rice and add a little more water to soften simmer for 2 - 3 min and season with a half to 1 tsp miso per cup of grain, at the end of cooking. Morning porridge may be soft and creamy, but otherwise the grain should be on the firm side.
From Michio Kushi book The macrobiotic path to total health.
Rice, carrot, onion, and carrot tops.
1. one med carrot - wash cut carrot, wash the carrot tops and take out the big stems ( i find they are hard to chew, and have stronger flavor). chop, and sautee in about 1 tsp oil.
2. Then add in carrot and 1/2 small onion cook for a few min, add a cup of cooked rice and small amount of water, and a small amount of tamari soy sauce. Seam together.
Easy and has a good taste.
I am using the left overs in my miso soup today.
Easy 5 min meal:
Steamed up some fresh collard greens, and left over brown rice. Then added a small amount of gamasio,and tamari soy sauce. And had a slice of firm hickory tofu on the side.
I found this one in Kushi book
