Liver/Gall Bladder Cleansing Kitchadi with Beets and Greens

20140131-123941.jpg

The pink Kitchadi! This one is great for cleansing and detoxing- with burdock, dandelion root, beets and beet greens, this was a hit with the Japanese ladies. Slightly sweet (because of the beets) but definitely having some bitterness with the other roots, this kitchadi will do your body good and taste great. Hale Pule’s recipe calls for barley instead of basmati. Though basmati rice is easier for the body to digest, the bulk and fibrous quality of barley helps to move matter through the digestive tract and stimulates the liver. We didn’t have any, so I went with brown basmati. For additional ease of elimination, I added extra ghee and some extra spicing.

5 c brown basmati rice (or barley)
2 1/2 c split mung beans
16 T ghee
3 T cumin seeds
3 T brown mustard seeds
3 T coriander seeds seeds
1 T 2 t mineral salt
4 T fresh grated ginger
1 T fresh grated turmeric
1 T cardamom powder
1 T coriander powder
2 c fresh burdock, chopped
1/2 c dandelion root, chopped (dried and reconstituted)
10 c beets, chopped
Top with parsley, cilantro, ground flax seed
10 c beet greens, chopped
