Blood stasis

Ratatouille - Adapted from recipe on eatyourvegetable.com


  • 1 eggplant, cubed into 1 inch pieces-cool, sweet, removes blood stagnation
  • 2 tomatoes, cut into eighths-slightly cool, sweet, sour, promotes fluids
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, chopped-hot, pungent, removes stagnant blood
  • 1 onion, chopped-warm, pungent
  • Olive oil-neutral, sweet, sour, astringent, promotes production of body fluids
  • Dry oregano
  • Dry basil-warm, pungent
  • Salt-cold, salty, slightly sweet, harmonizes digestion
  • Pepper-pungent, warm, warms the MJ


Preheat oven to 375

Toss vegetables, a few splashes of olive oil, and spices in a cast iron pot or any sort of roasting pan until

well-combined. Cover and bake until veggies are tender and juices are bubbling, about 45 minutes to an

hour, depending on your oven. Serve over pasta.
