Kitchari Spiced Coconut Black Bean Noodles

Kitchari Spiced Coconut Black Bean Noodles

I usually prefer spices on their own, as opposed to buying blends. However, I really like a nice kitchari spice blend. These spices are specifically formulated to be incredibly medicinal and help with digestion. The ancient science of life & vitality, ayurveda, says that digestion, or “agni,”  literally translated to “fire,” is of prime importance in creating health and balance for the body.

 

Prep time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

Organic black bean noodles, or other noodle

Organic coconut milk

Organic coconut oil

Fresh veggies ( I used yellow squash and a few dices of tomato)

Fresh basil or other herb of choice

kitchari spice blend (I used the blend made by Banyan)

Himalayan/sea salt

 

Directions:

1. Boil water and cook the noodles according to directions.

2. While the noodles are cooking, cut up your veggies and put 1 tbs of coconut oil to heat on med/high heat on the stove.

3. Quickly stir fry your veggies, adding a 1/2 tsp of kitchari spice blend to fry in the oil with the veggies.

4. Add the cooked black bean noodles to the pan and 1 or 2 tbs of coconut milk. Cook together for another 2 minutes so the flavors meld. Try not to overcook your veggies! :)

5. Chop some fresh herbs, I chose basil, and mix them in. Salt and

6. Enjoy!
