Azuki Beans with onions (p. 68 of David's book Inspiring Organics)

The caramelized onions mixed with azuki beans give this dish a sweetness that tastes sensational and is excellent for building spleen strength which help the immune system.

1 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 tsp tamari or shoyu (soya sauce)


• Heat frying pan with sesame oil and sauté onions for 5 min or until transparent.

Brown Rice (p. 82 of David's book Inspiring Organics)

When cooking rice, it is more efficient to prepare extra to use for other meals, such as stir-fries. Place extra rice in a sealed container in the fridge where it can last for up to 3 days.

2 cups of water
1 teaspoon brown rice vinegar
Pinch of natural salt


• Place rice with water in a pan. Add salt and simmer on a low heat with lid on for 40 minutes.

This quick pressed salad adds colour and flavour to your meal.

2 spring onion, cut into diagonals
½ teaspoon umeboshi vinegar

Exotic Tonic Greens (p. 38 of Inspiring Organics)

‘Exotic tonic greens’ is the name I attribute to a large leaf salad mix. It is the most powerful food for cleansing the body and carries high levels of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the life’s blood of the plant and has a rejuvenating effect on the body.


2 cup large leaf salad mix
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Pinch natural salt


• Place greens into a salad bowl, add lemon and salt, fold in gently and serve.
