RECIPES FROM A PLANT-BASED KITCHEN
2 tsp* organic fresh ginger (bottled okay if no preservatives)
2 tsp organic turmeric (fresh or powder)
2 tsp organic horseradish (bottled OK if no preservatives)
2 tsp organic fresh onion
2 tsp organic fresh garlic
2 tsp organic fresh black radish or daikon radish
1 cup filtered water
Use approximately equal amounts of the ingredients. For each cup of water, you will need a total of 50 grams of the ingredients. If you have a big family or are making the elixir for extended family or friends, use 2 or 3 cups of water and 100 to 150 grams of the ingredients (*2 tsp = approx. 8 g).
Wash all the ingredients.
Cut them into smaller chunks.
Fill your blender with water and the chunks.
Process until thoroughly blended.
Use a cheesecloth or nut milk bag to strain the mixture.
Store the elixir in the fridge for up to 10 days, but it is always better to make it fresh every few days.
Take 1 tsp to 1 Tbsp at a time (depending on stomach sensitivity), every hour if you are not feeling well. If taking the elixir as a preventive measure, 2 Tbsp a day should suffice. The mixture if quite potent, so take as much as you want if your stomach is strong. If your stomach is on the sensitive side, mix the elixir into soup, stew, smoothie or juice.
