This dish features adzuki beans, frequently mentioned in Eastern medicine and Macrobiotics for their "yang" properties and for satisfying hunger. As someone who likes to eat very often I have found that they are in fact very satisfying.
Preparation was very simple:
Soaked the beans overnight in mineral water
Put the beans, bottled tomatoes, some seaweed and water in a pot and cooked until they were soft enough.
Then added some paprika, cayenne, olive oil, and sea salt. I ate them with whole grain bread* and fresh tomatoes.
I found this blog to give you a relevant link : ) about the acid alkaline balance and to learn other things from this health professional.
His blog appears far superior to mine as he has over twenty years of work and training as personal trainer and nutritionist! Plus his name appears to be Scandinavian so he's probably quite smart.
*presently I do not eat conventional breads and hope to post on breads and flours in the near future
