Natural Organic gluten free Sesame & pumpkin seeds snack delicacy

This recipe is even easier than the last one I just posted.
No nuts to crack open.
In my twenty plus years in macrobiotic I was taught that sesame seeds give more calcium to the body than milk considering that milk gives but takes a lot away in the process, & pumpkin cleans out the liver.
This might give you the extra incentive to try out these recipes considering it’s a perfect alternative to the ready made junk we all use today.

Enjoy it! Let me know, I’d very much appreciate the feedback:)

Ingredients.
———–

1. 2 Tbsp. Organic whole sesame seeds (you can use the regular white one too)
2. 1 Tbsp. Organic rice syrup (honey or any other sweetener)
3. 1 Tbsp. fresh organic ginger juice (that’s optional. I don’t always have the patience to grate & squeeze out the juice but I like the sharp edge it gives to it)

Last of Easy-Party-recipe series (Part 4) Quick-cheap-Simple & easy treats & ideas


pop corn-1-

Who isn’t familiar with the good old bowl of pop corn but as easy as it may seem, I have burnt quite a few batches until I got it right and the first thing to think about is the pot that’ll make it happen.
It has to be air-tight so the corn can pop. Mine is so old, the handle has gone there’s even a small hole there instead but I cannot throw it because it has become my pop-corn-pot!
You need to cover generously the bottom layer with oil (I use olive & as usual nobody notices) and pour generously a bottom layer of organic corn grains (the video I posted in my blog has terrified me of anything GMO) but not too much or it’ll overflow!
I put it on maximum temperature, wait till I hear it popping furiously until it gets less then bring it down to a 5-6 which is a Medium flame (for gas) then wait some more for the noise to quieten down until it’s just a few pops and turn it off completely, shake the pot to hear if all grains have popped & it doesn’t rattle then, take off the lid so the steam doesn’t get a chance to soak the pop corn, pour in a steel bowl and add salt immediately or it won’t stick when cold.
You can choose to make a caramelized flavor but that’s more work so I hardly do it, but paprika powder or pili-pili is a good choice too.

Here’s another idea…

Boiled Spirelli salad with chunks of tuna, boiled organic green beans and pickled cucumber for those who like that seasoned with olive oil salt and black pepper.
We added an avocado-tomato-cucumber-pickled cucumber and grated carrots salad but I didn’t think it was relevant for the blog it was just something extra for the party.
All the other plates on the table have been posted previously in the natural-recipe category so, this is the last of my Easy-Party-recipe series. I hope you enjoyed it!

Thanks for all the feedback, likes and comments, it’s genuinely appreciated ūüôā
