Fear and Trepidation
After a visit from an aspiring raw vegan, I have quite a few sprouts left over. I don’t relish raw beans so I cooked something up. Do you ever throw a dish together in the kitchen and then hesitate before the first bite? Usually I have a good idea of what the results will be be, but here, I was not at all sure.
Mmmm, it was good. Sigh of relief. I sautéed some onion and a little bit of celery in olive oil, then threw in 2 handfuls of azuki bean sprouts, stirred a bit, then added some sprouted lentils, let that cook a few seconds, saw a chard leaf hanging around so put that in, then turned off the heat and poured in about a teaspoon of soy sauce and sprinkled on about a teaspoon of brewers’ yeast.
We can create our own situations of fear; here is another example. This mésange, a blue tit, sees his reflection in the window and attacks. One year he went on for hours until I thought of adding a sheer curtain to change the reflection.
