Product Description

Whole black peppercorns have been used by people for thousands of years and become an essential spice for many of the world’s cuisines. It is used in a great variety of dishes and can make almost anything taste much better.

However, few people know that this spice also helps their health. It has been used in traditional medicine for centuries and some of the recipes of black pepper based treatments are popular even today.

Health Benefits

As any organic spice, whole black pepper offers quite a few important health benefits. Simply adding it to your food has little effect as the amount of the essential nutrients your body gets this way is small. However, you can use it as a remedy in some cases.

The most important health benefits offered by this spice are:

  • Disease prevention.
    Whole black peppercorns contain a lot of chemical compounds that help preventing various diseases. Their anti-inflammatory properties help not only protect but also fight these problems when they occur.
  • Promoting enzyme production.
    Black pepper has the strongest positive effect on your digestive system. One of its benefits in promoting the production of enzymes that ease digestion and increase the absorption rate of essential nutrients.
  • Treating flatulence.
    As a digestive aid, remedies based on this spice help treat flatulence, stomachache, and other conditions that affect your gastrointestinal tract.
  • Controlling blood pressure.
    Note that this effect isn’t strong as the amount of black pepper you consume with food is very little. However, the spice is rich in potassium, which can help in controlling your heart rate and normalizing blood pressure. All in all, this spice is safe for people who suffer from hypertension.

Eating large amounts of spices is dangerous, no matter how many good essential nutrients they can provide you with. However, adding black pepper to your food little by little will help you meet your daily norm of vitamins and minerals.

Green Tea Vegetable Immunity Boosting Soup

Serves: 4-6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbl Coconut Oil
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 2 Stalks Celery, chopped
  • 3 Carrots, sliced into ¼” rounds
  • 2 Parsnips, sliced into ¼” rounds
  • Shitake Mushrooms, rehydrated

  • Parsley, for garnish
  • Eggless Noodles
  • Crackers, for serving


Instructions

To begin, add the vegetable broth, bay leaves, turmeric, ginger and peppercorns to a large stock pot.
Tie the tea bags as I have shown here so they can steep in the liquid.
Bring the liquid to a boil, add the tea bags and simmer for about 2-3 minutes.
Remove the tea bags and strain the liquid to remove the bay leaves and peppercorns.
In a large saute pan, add the coconut oil, onions, celery, carrots and parsnips and season with salt and pepper.
Once tender, remove from the burner and add the garlic, allow the residual heat to cook it.
If you have a grill pan, heat to high and add the lemon halves for just a few minutes until caramelized. This step is optional.
Add lemon halves to the broth and boil for about 10 minutes. Remove the lemons.
While the broth is boiling, rehydrate the shitake mushrooms in hot water for 10 minutes, drain and rinse.
Prepare the noodles.
Combine the mushrooms, sauteed vegetables and broth.
Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with your favorite crackers.

Enjoy it!

  2. Process carrots, ginger, garlic, chili in a food processor until shredded and add to bowl. Or use a grater.
  3. Process chickpeas until coarsely blended, not fully a paste. Add to the bowl. (I use a mini food processor and it works really well for both the steps).
  4. Make the spice blend : Crush the cumin coriander and black pepper using a mortar pestle. Or pulse in a spice grinder to a coarse meal. Heat ½ tsp oil in small skillet. When hot, add the crushed spices and cook until fragrant. You can also dry roast them until fragrant or add them unroasted.

Easy Vegan Falafel

Easy Vegan Falafel

Ingredients

  • 1 15-ounce (425 g) can chickpeas, rinsed, drained and patted dry – http://bit.ly/1A2TUEw
  • 1/3 cup (15 g) chopped fresh parsley (or sub cilantro)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 shallots, minced (~ 3/4 cup, 65 g | or sub white onion)
  • 2 Tbsp (17 g) raw sesame seeds (or sub finely chopped nuts, such as pecans) – http://bit.ly/1yNOqNm
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp each sea salt and black pepper, plus more to taste – http://bit.ly/1U1LRkr
  • OPTIONAL: Healthy pinch each cardamom and coriander
  • 3-4 Tbsp (24-31 g) all purpose flour (or sub oat flour or gluten free blend with varied results)
  • 3-4 Tbsp (45 – 60 ml) grape seed oil for cooking (or sub any neutral oil with a high smoke point)


Instructions

  1. Add chickpeas, parsley, shallot, garlic, sesame seeds, cumin, salt, pepper (and coriander and cardamom if using) to a food processor or blender and mix/pulse to combine, scraping down sides as needed until thoroughly combined. You’re looking for a crumbly dough, not a paste (see photo).
  2. Add flour 1 Tbsp at a time and pulse/mix to combine until no longer wet and you can mold the dough into a ball without it sticking to your hands – I used 4 Tbsp.
  3. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. I added a bit more salt, pepper, and a dash of cardamom and coriander. You want the flavor to be pretty bold, so don’t be shy.
  4. Transfer to a mixing bowl, cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours to firm up. If you’re in a hurry you can skip this step but they will be a little more fragile when cooking.
  5. Once chilled, scoop out rounded Tablespoon amounts (~30 g in weight // I used this scoop) and gently form into 11-12 small discs.
  6. OPTIONAL: Sprinkle on panko bread crumbs and gently press to adhere – flip and repeat. This will produce a crispier crust but is optional.
  7. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add enough oil to generously coat the pan – about 2 Tbsp. Swirl to coat.
  8. Once the oil is hot, add only as many falafel as will fit very comfortably in the pan at a time – about 5.
  9. Cook for a total of 4-5 minutes, flipping when the underside is deep golden brown. Repeat until all falafel are browned – the deeper golden brown they are, the crispier they’ll be. They will also firm up more once slightly cooled.
  10. Serve warm with garlic-dill sauce or hummus, inside a pita with desired toppings or atop a bed of greens.
  11. Best when fresh, though leftovers will keep in the refrigerator covered for several days. Freeze after that to keep fresh for up to 1 month.
