to cook - abundance bowl of sunflower risotto


love creating abundance bowls; but because of my blood type I should avoid grains.
So this one is made from steamed sunflower seeds. ( soaked, sprouted and steamed), no rice in this risotto!
This dish was inspired by a Risotto I had on my birthday at Relea in Copenhagen... It was sunflower risotto with grated cheese! Soooo delicious! And I taught it was pretty genius using sunflower seeds!


I added grilled butternut in star-anis and cinnamon,
broccoli stem ( beneficial for blood type O),
steamed kale ( beneficial for blood type O)
zucchini, fennel ( good for the digestion),
parsley ( beneficial for O and vata )
mint ( love love love)
and a sauce of roasted pumpkin seeds, ginger, lemon, pepper, garlic.
I roasted everything with ghee, as I should avoid coconut oil and ghee is beneficial for both blood type and aryuvedic diets.

And by the waaaay!!
Steamed sunflowers taste juts like popcorn!!!
would be soooo good with eveything!
