Re: FOOD AS MEDICINE and/or DINNER

ItalianBee....one could replace the soysauce with coconut amino acids or even just a liitle salt. I think the recipe does need the 'salty' flavor, maybe float a small piece of seaweed. WhiteHorse...yum! And yum again using infused vinegar! Yesterday at my clients house I oven roasted 3 organic beets...
