“Spring Cleansing” Liver Tea

 Liver Drink MugIngredients and Prep:

1 part raw buckwheat grain

1 part fresh daikon radish (diced into fine pieces)

1 part fresh daikon radish greens tops (cut thinly)

2 parts bean sprouts, mung bean or alfalfa (cut finely into small pieces)

2 parts scallion (cut finely into small pieces)

1 part dried shiitake mushrom (soaked 10 minutes in a little water, chop finely, add soaking water to mixture)

5 parts water

A ‘part’ can be any amount as long as it is kept in appropriate proportion.  Ex: if 1 part is 1/8 cup then 2 part would be 1/4 cup.

For correct amount of water, if your total parts of ingredients equals 2 cups then 5 times that amount would be 10 cups of water.

 Liver Drink Ingredients

 

Directions:

Pre-cook the buckwheat grain for 15 minutes in 5 times the total amount of water.  Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to medium.

Add the vegetables to the grain and simmer for 15 minutes longer.

Drink Tea while still hot.

 Recommended Usage:

Drink 1 cup every day for 7 days in a row.

This will help to detoxify those heavy winter foods that we accumulated for the cold weather.  It will also help release stagnate energy making us feel lighter.  A lighter liver is a happy liver.
