GOMBS pasta

Earlier this year, I learned about Dr. Joel (Eat to Live) Fuhrman’s GOMBS, or acronym for the top 5 foods (Greens + Onions + Mushrooms + Berries + Seeds) for cancer prevention. I thought it would be fun to play Iron Chef and create a dish using GOMBS ingredients and bring it to our workday potluck.

1. Cook 8 oz. pasta al dente & set aside.
2. In pot, sauté 1 small chopped Onion + 4 cloves minced garlic in 2 Tbsp. olive oil.
3. Add 1 lb. sliced shiitake Mushrooms, & sauté until soft.
4. Add ½ cup stock (water + hijiki) + ¼ cup mirin + 3 Tbsp soy sauce.
5. In small bowl, mix 2 Tbsp tapioca starch + 4 Tbsp water; stir into pot & cook for 1 minute.
6. Toss pasta & pot contents.
7. Sprinkle with 2 chopped Green onions +3 Tbsp. sesame Seeds + handful of goji Berries.

Enjoy!
