Being on an alkaline diet requires well balanced meals. I like to eat the foods I have always eaten. I just change a few ingredients and my meal turns more alkaline. This is not a diet where you have to eat foods that you have never heard of. I have often written about the importance of adding foods that are higher in alkaline to your meals. This was a dinner that I made for some friends. Filet of Sole, Japonica Rice and Zucchini Squash. Serve with a tossed green salad and a fruit cup for dessert and this becomes an alkaline meal. Here is what I did.
Filet of Sole Serves 4
4 4oz. sole filets
2 Tbsp. clarified butter
Juice of 1 lemon
¼ cup vegetable stock
1 tsp. capers
Heat the butter in a frying pan. Pat the fish dry, sprinkle with salt, place in the pan and cook 3 minutes. Flip the fish over, add the lemon and capers. Add a little of the stock. This will create a little sauce. You might not need all the stock. It’s easy to put liquid in a dish, very hard to take it out. Cook for 3 more minutes. The fish should be done in about 6 minutes.
Found in Health Food Stores, this is delicious alternative to white rice and I promise you, it’s delicious and very alkaline. I like cooking rice in a rice cooker.
1 cup rice
1 small onion, sliced
2 tsp. clarified butter
½ tsp sea salt
opt. 1 cup sliced mushrooms
Heat a skillet, add the butter and onion (mushrooms). Cook about 10 minutes until the onions are translucent but not browned.
Place the rice in the rice cooker add 2 cups water then the onions and salt. Cook according to directions.
My favorite way to cook zucchini is to place a steamer basket in a pot with a little water and gently steam the vegetable. They should be done in 6-8 minutes. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and serve.
