• 2-3 cups Brussels sprouts

  • 1 medium daikon radish

  • 1 qt spring water

  • 2″ piece of kombu seaweed

Blanched Brussels Sprouts


Add kombu to water and bring to a boil; after 2 minutes, remove Kombu and reserve for another time. Add Brussels sprouts to boiling water and cook for 3 to 5 minutes (until they test tender with a fork) then remove with a slotted spoon. Cut daikon diagonally in ½” chunks and put into boiling water. Cook until the desired consistency is reached (not too soft) and remove from water with a slotted spoon. When sprouts are cool enough to handle, cut them in half, combine with daikon in a serving dish and mix. Serve.

“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.”
