We use asparagus only when they are in season, in early spring. Because, they have a cleansing effect on the urinary tract.


  • 1 bunch of asparagus

  • Spring water

  • Soy sauce for taste

  • A steamer
Steamed Asparagus


Bring the steamer to a boil. Place the asparagus into the steamer. Steam for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on how tender the asparagus are. We don’t want them to get too mushy. Add a few drops of soy sauce in the last minute of the cooking. 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.”
