Today, I will share with you a recipe I came up with that can gain full access to this nutrient.
It is in Natto, red wine, Sake, brown rice vinegar, soy sauce, octopus, squid, green peppers, spinach, bananas, and Shiitake.
Natto has 25.0 (μg)
Red wine 110～173
Brown rice vinegar 150
Soy sauce 22.0
Green peppers 18.1
So, I decided to make a salad with brown rice vinegar, soy sauce, Natto, octopus, squid, green peppers, spinach, and Shitake.
This is the recipe.
How to make 5-ALA rich super Natto salad
Brown rice vinegar 10g
Soy sauce 10g
Olive oil 5g
Sesame seeds a little
Green peppers 50g
First, cut some spinach.
Next, cut some Shitake.
After that, boil Shitake for about one minute.
Then, turn the gas off and add spinach. Leave the vegetables there for one minute.
After one minute, you drain the water.
Next, cut green peppers.
Then, cut octopus.
Then, make the dressing with brown rice vinegar, soy sauce, and olive oil.
Add sesame seed if you like.
Put Natto, octopus, and squid. You can put octopus and squid one hour before to soak in the vinegar if you like. If you don’t want to eat them raw, you can cook them, too.
Finally, add the vegetables,
and mix them together.
That’s it. Now you have 5-ALA rich super Natto salad. It has about 113.45 μg of 5-ALA all together.
I don’t know exactly how much 5-ALA we need to prevent us from infecting the coronavirus, they haven’t told us, but they said that we can’t get enough of it from food. To have the effect, we need to take supplements. Since I don’t like taking supplements I like to absorb it from food, and I think it is better than nothing. Even though it may not be enough, it certainly boosts our immune system, some of the ingredients used in the salad are already superfoods on their own.
You don’t always have to put them all in one dish. Just like Ma Go Wa Ya Sa Shi I, you can have them over the course of 5, or 6 meals.
