Taiwanese sesame noodles and homemade chili oil.

I made homemade chili oil today which I’ve never done before. I heated up a little pot of vegetable oil with some aromatics in it like cinnamon sticks, cloves, bay leaves and star anise. When it got hot, I poured it 
through a sieve into a bowl of Chinese chili flakes. 
Then I added salt and a tiny sprinkle of Chinese black vinegar.

Ingredients for the sesame noodles: 2 TB sesame paste, 2 TB light and dark soy sauce, Chinese black vinegar, sesame oil, chili oil that I made, sugar and hot water.

Brothy beans, cancer fighting salad, tacos.

Brothy crockpot pintos with pesto and avocado.

Ingredients for cancer fighting salad and dressing.
I really need to make this more often. These ingredients are just some of the foods that are anti-angiogenic which stop the formation of blood vessels that feed tumors. I just found out that one of my family members has been diagnosed with cancer so I wanted to share this with her and everyone. The pinto bean tacos below is topped with a slaw made from the same ingredients as the salad. You can do lots with it to keep it from being boring! Delicious food that is also medicine.

Beans again!

I made brothy beans overnight in the crockpot and they were so good. Just 1 lb. dry pinto beans, garlic, chopped onions, Mexican oregano and water for 12 hours on low. Next day, salt them and add cumin and New México chili powder. I served mine on top of potatoes tonight with hot sauce and chili flakes. It’s also good with a dollop of tomatillo salsa and a handful of tortilla chips.
