What’s the connection between feng shui & food you ask? As you know, the chi in your surroundings and in the food you eat either nourish or deplete you. How you prepare your meals adds to the vibrancy of the food you eat and serve to others. For those who know me well, know I love to cook. My love of cooking adds joy to the food I eat. And that’s a good thing and good things are good feng shui!
Approximately 1 quart of high quality beef stock*
1 head of cabbage, cored and chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced**
1 14.5 oz can of organic tomato sauce
1 14.5 oz can of organic diced tomatoes
Juice of 1 lemon, or 1/4 c of apple cider vinegar
1 T of brown sugar
Dash of cayenne pepper, salt to taste
Sauté the onion in olive oil. When soft add the remaining ingredients and simmer for a couple hours. If you are making this a vegetarian version, I recommend sautéing the cabbage in a generous pour of olive before adding the liquids.
* A good beef stock makes this soup rich and yummy. I make my own by simmering a beef shank and a couple of beef bones covered with water, 2 bay leaves, 2 cloves of garlic, 5 whole allspice, 3 -4 peppercorns and salt to taste in a crock pot for several hours. I put the spices and garlic in a tea infuser for easy removal when done.
** If using my beef stock recipe, omit the garlic.
