Elegant Baked Fruit

Baked Pears, Baked Apples Macrobiotic-Style

A simple recipe, inspired by macrobiotic cookbook author Aveline Kushi, for baked fruit desserts: cut the cores from apples and pears, fill the apples with cinnamon and brown rice syrup, and insert finely-chopped ginger root and brown rice syrup into the pears. Bake the fruits in a covered dish or pot for an hour or longer, at a medium-hot temperature. The fruits will be soft enough to eat with a fork or spoon and without removing the skins. I used a six-quart Le Creuset stockpot, with a thin layer of sesame oil to prevent sticking on the bottom, to bake these apples and pears.

M-J’s Sautéed Tofu

Extra-Firm Tofu is Marinated and Dusted with Soy Flour, before Being Sautéed in Safflower and Sesame Oils

Tofu was introduced in the United States by famous Japanese macrobiotic cook, author and painter Aveline Kushi.

Marinated in soy sauce or miso, dusted with soy flour, then fried in safflower and sesame oils, this tofu makes an elegant hors d’oeuvre or a health-promoting meal.
