Aduki with squash / pumpkin and kombu recipe

I found this recipe on natural-cancer-cures.com. A short-cut for this recipe would be Eden Foods Organic Aduki Beans canned, which already contain kombu seaweed. You can also use Farmer's Market Organic Pumpkin canned. Both available on vitacost.com. Use this code to get $10 OFF your FIRST ORDER:

Aduki with squash / pumpkin and kombu

There is a macrobiotic dish made with aduki, kombu seaweed and squash or pumpkin. This dish is nourishing for the kidneys and highly recommended for those with kidney weakness (with symptoms such as low energy and low sexual drive).

It's very simple to do. Just cook pre-soaked aduki beans in enough water to cover, together with a strip or kombu seaweed, cut into small squares.

When the beans are about done, add squash or pumpkin. Japanese pumpkin, or kabocha, is particularly tasty with this.

Also, add a pinch of sea salt (to draw out the sweetness of the aduki beans). And cook for another 20 to 30 minutes.

Actual proportions of beans and squash or pumpkin is not vital. Just go easy on the kombu and don't use too much of it. One or two strips for four to six people would be more than enough.
