Macrobiotic and Vegan Recipes

The recipes you'll find here are 100% vegan and macrobiotic.

I use only natural unrefined sweeteners like maple syrup, brown rice syrup, agave nectar, and organic fruit juices. You'll also find that I am using whole grains other than wheat. Spelt flour, quinoa, amaranth are all delicious and add exciting variety to your pantries.  

Since vegan cooking and baking does not use any dairy you'll probably find some ingredients listed that you are not familiar with. Don't  worry! Have fun and explore using these vegan ingredients that are easier on your body and on the planet. 

Azuki (Adzuki) Bread

This is a dessert loaf bread made with Azuki Beans and a combination of white and whole spelt flours. Azuki beans are
valued in Japan for their ability to cleanse and strengthen the kidneys. This recipe uses maple syrup to give this
Azuki loaf its gentle and satisfying sweetness while the addition of a little grain coffee adds a savory note to the
overall flavor.
