When I buy fruit and veggies, I always soak them in a 1:4 ratio of vinegar and water to help remove toxins and pesticides. I leave them soaking for up to an hour, longer with nonorganic apples. At the end of the bath, sometimes you can even see cloudy like stuff in the water from the skins and waxes, and dirt on the bottom.
I will definitely be doing this from now on.
This is a lightly spiced bean and coconut dish from East Africa.
1 onion (sliced)
Couple of tomatoes (quartered)
Large teaspoon turmeric
Handful of fresh coriander
Can of Black Eyed Beans (half gently mashed)
Half a can of coconut milk
Fresh red mild chili (chopped)
Brown onions gently in oil. Add the beans, turmeric, tomatoes and chilli. Fry gently for a couple of minutes before adding the coriander and coconut milk. Cook gently for ten minutes or so and season. Serve with rice.
