• 2 quarts water

  • 2 cups cauliflower, broken into pieces

  • 2 cups broccoli, cut into 1 inch pieces

  • 2 carrots, cut in chunks

  • 1 cup butternut squash, diced in 1 inch pieces

  • Lotus root, thinly sliced

  • 2 cups cabbage, torn in large pieces

Sauce Ingredients

  • 1 tbs. umeboshi Paste

  • 1 cup warm water

  • 1 tbs. Toasted sesame oil, heated in small pot



Bring water to a boil in large pot. Add broccoli and cook until water returns to a boil. Remove with slotted spoon. Continue this procedure with each vegetable, cooking squash last because it will discolor the water. When cool, combine ingredients in a bowl and add sauce (see below) and toss the salad.

Sauce Preparation

Melt umeboshi paste in a little warm water. Add heated oil and mix.

“The macrobiotic way of life recommended by the ancient wise people and practiced widely for physical, mental and spiritual development consists of the following arts; the way of eating, the way of breathing, and the way of daily life. Because a human being is part of his environment, and has evolved through biological development covering more than three billion years on this planet, his physical, mental and spiritual conditions are based upon what he consumes from his natural environment and his food. The way of eating is the most essential factor for his development.”
