goji berries - goji berry recipes

In the Valleys of Tibet and Mongolia there is a special berry the locals cherish so much they honor it in celebrations that last two weeks each year. Goji berries contain more beta-carotene than carrots, more Iron than Spinach and more Protein than whole wheat (13%). Goji berries contain 21 trace minerals, including germanium - the anti cancer trace mineral rarely found in foods. Goji berries contain 18 amino acids, Vitamin E, and 500 times more Vitamin C by weight than oranges. Goji berries also contain vitamins B1, B2, and B6, which are necessary for converting food into energy.

Vegan RECIPE - Cream of Buckwheat with Goji Berries:

For people who struggle with wheat allergies and gluten intolerance, buckwheat is an ideal food. Many people who are having physical and emotional challenges find that removing wheat and other gluten containing foods from there diet makes a profound difference in how they think and feel. Buckwheat has plenty of protein and B vitamins, and is rich in phosphorus, potassium, iron, and calcium. Although buckwheat has many grain-like characteristics, it is from an entirely different botanical family, and is actually a fruit. Since buckwheat is unrelated to the classic cereal grains, those who are allergic to wheat can tolerate buckwheat. It is also Delicious!

To make a serving for two people: Bring 2 ½ cups of rice or soya milk to a boil, slowly stir in ½ cup of Cream of Buckwheat, return to boil. Add a handful of Goji Berries per person. A dash of good quality sea salt or low sodium salt is optional. Reduce heat to low, simmer 10 minutes stirring frequently

Smoked tofu and bean burgers served with avocado sauce and green salad

This is a fantastic way to get good quality protein and B vitamins. Kidney beans have a lovely sweet flavour and they also pick up the aromas of the smoked tofu. If you are trying to lose weight, suffer from edema or swollen extremities, kidney beans can help as they have a diuretic action. They are also a good source of iron, magnesium and folic acid.

Makes 6-8

1 medium onion, peeled and quartered
1 plump garlic clove, peeled
1 medium carrot, peeled and coarsely grated (about 60g prepared weight)
420g can 'no-salt no-sugar' red kidney beans, drained and rinsed in a colander under cold running water
220g pack smoked tofu, drained
75g/ cup sunflower seeds
1 small bunch parsley (about 20g)
2 tsp organic wheat-free vegetable bouillon powder

1 Preheat the oven to 220C/Gas Mark 7. Line a large baking tray with baking parchment.

2 Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend for roughly 6-8 seconds, until well mixed but still retaining some texture, pushing down with a spatula once. Remove the blade and take a handful of the mixture.

3 Form into a ball and place on the baking tray. Press with fingertips to make a burger shape. Repeat a further 5 or 7 times depending on how large you want your burgers.

4 Bake for 25 minutes until light golden brown. Remove from oven and leave to firm up on the tray for 3-4 minutes. Divide between 4-6 plates and serve with a green salad and avocado sauce .
