  • Bring water to boil (filtered is best for us) in large saucepan, add some pinch of sea salt. Put in Cavolo, then Kale, then Broccoli and Red Pepper;
  • Lid on for approx 4 mins.
  • Remove with strainer and place in your serving bowl. Mix them beautifully with wooden spoons or sticks. (Wood is softer than metal)


  • Keep the fabulous cooking water and pour half of it into a Suribachi.
  • Add the sauce ingredients above, rest Surabachi on a cloth and mix gently yet firmly with the Surikogi.
  • Pour the sauce over and mix the moment before serving or put it in a separate bowl with spoon for people to help themselves.
  • Keep any leftover cooking water to use later in the day.


Use organic ingredients as much as possible.
When cutting and preparing it’s best for body and mind to stand on both feet equally balanced facing your cutting board. More focused and peaceful.
The maybe’s….choice for each occasion will be different, lemon juice, ginger juice, drop of shoyu ( I go easy on this one) Please experiment. This is lovely with umeboshi vinegar, white miso, oil, apple conc’ with drop of cooking water.
These cooking waters have great nourishment, always keep them - we do need to save gas and electricity and be mindful of our ability to use everything we create - way into the future, for ourselves and Mother Earth. As the indigenous people say…..for our childrens’ childrens’ children!
