Good Food for the Waxing Moon

Dear Cyber-Universe,

I’ve decided to write more regularly this year and to limit this blog to Ayurveda and food-related topics. So twice a month, you will see a new recipe on this blog. This month, with the new year upon us, so many things are on my mind; new legislation in effect in California mandating more humane conditions for chickens and pigs (if you eat eggs, chicken or pork), a defense by the State of Vermont of their mandatory gmo-labelling law, rising rates of autism (seemingly related to the use of glysophate, an ingredient in Round-up, a widely used pesticide). More on all these topics later.

For now, how about some good winter food:

Kale and Buckwheat Pasta

Clean & coarsely chop a bunch of Kale (trim the ends and chop the stems especially fine)—set aside.

Put 2 T olive oil in a pot along with a tablespoon (more or less to taste) of finely chopped garlic.

Add kale, with just the water from washing, when garlic becomes translucent.

Cook about 20 min, stirring once or twice. Add salt & pepper to taste.

Cook buckwheat noodles according to package directions. When the pasta is done, drain and toss with the cooked kale. Add parmesan, vegan or dairy, if you like. A nice color addition is to add finely shredded organic carrots and/or beets. Enjoy!
