For a portion of buckwheat porridge we use 1 deciliter buckwheat and 3 deciliter water. It’s brought to a boil, where after it has to simmer for half an hour.
In the case of millet porridge we use 1 deciliter millet and 3 deciliter water which is brought to a boil, where after it has to simmer for 20 minutes.
Potato porridge is easy to make.
Boil 1 – 2 cups of water in the bottom of a pan. Peel and grate 2 potatoes on a fine shredder and pour them in the boiling water. We beat the porridge for 3 minutes. But we use absolutely no salt.
The potato porridge is good for a sensitive stomach, e.g. for ulcer patients.
One of the most popular dishes is our millet steak which we make of boiled millet, grated carrots, beets and onions. The boiled potatoes are mashed with a fork, all ingredients are mixed thoroughly and the millet steaks are fried in corn oil or maybe some cold pressed olive oil (remark by the translator: back in 1985, when this book was written, corn oil had replaced the earlier normal use of lard or butter for cooking, and the use of olive oil was quite chic. Today we know that cooking with corn oil is not a healthy choice, and even so olive oil is one of the healthy oils, it’s only healthy when used cold and rather unhealthy when used for frying. A much better choice for frying and cooking is coconut oil which doesn’t change into some kind of monster oil at high temperatures. I buy the organic kind of coconut oil that tastes of coconuts, but if you don’t like the taste, you can get it with neutral taste as well.)
It is important that the preparations are made very carefully. This applies to all cooking.
– But surely it’s important to emphasize once again that the dishes we’ve mentioned here, are not for patients who are doing the drinking cure, the fast cure?
– That’s right.
Patients, who’ve started the cleansing drinking cure, only get the three liters of potato water a day and garlic cloves, apple cloves and linseed.
By the way, the cure is also slimming.
In this connection I want to emphasize that when you’re an adult you’re not supposed to grow in width.
