For these recipes: 1 pinch salt equals 150 milligrams or 1 thirty-second of teaspoon. 
Measure a teaspoon salt or whatever is your smallest measuring spoon and place the 
salt onto a piece of paper. Keep dividing the salt in half until you are down to 
1 thirty-second of a teaspoon. Find something that holds that amount to use to 
measure salt for recipes. I use a tiny plastic spoon that I found in my junk box, 
maybe came from a set of toy dishes or some kind of craft kit.

Makes about 6 ounces, for a large drink, double recipe and 
using a 2 cup or larger blender.

1 (about .2 ounce) ground cherry 
  or 5 raisins
1 quarter ounce broccoli
1 eighth ounce (1 eighth cup, cut into 1 quarter inch pieces, 
    not packed, about 1 small sprig) parsley 
  or 1 eighth ounce (1 eighth cup, cut into 1 quarter inch pieces, 
    not packed, about 1 branch) cilantro
1 teaspoon grain flour
1 teaspoon sunflower seeds
1 teaspoon fava bean flour (this trial)
  or 1 quarter teaspoon roasted peanut butter 
1 pinch salt

Put into a 1 half to 1 cup blender: all ingredients and about 1 half cup water.

Run until sunflower seeds have been pulverized, about 4 minutes.

If using a 1 half cup blender, pour slurry into a mug, add another half cup 
water so the liquid is fluid enough to pass through a strainer as called 
for in next step.

Pour the liquid into a 14 wire per inch strainer that is sitting over a bowl.

Tap the bowl to jog liquid through the strainer.

Use a large spoon to press liquid through the strainer.

Pour the liquid through the strainer, do not tap and do not press.

Discard solids.

Put the liquid into a mug.

Add water, if needed to make about 6 ounces.

Add 2 packets aspartame sweetner.

Stir.

If desired, heat 20 to 40 seconds in a 1000 watt microwave oven to warm.
 
About equal mild to moderate: broccoli flavor, bitter/sweetness, starchiness; 
mildly tangy; slightly: raisin flavored, fava flavored.

  or 1 tablespoon (.5 ounce) canola oil plus 2 tablespoons (.8 ounce) bean or grain flour
  or 1 eighth cup (1 ounces)  30 percent added oil non roasted sunflower seed butter
  or 1 half cup (2.6 ounces) no hull pumkin seed
2 tablespoons (.6 ounce) whole grain flour,
1 tablespoon (.4 ounce) flax seed
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) sugar
4 packets aspartame sweetner
1 quarter teaspoon salt
1 quarter cup (2 ounces) water
8.6 ounces, 4.5 ounces water

Put into a 1 half cup blender:
About 1 quarter cup water and 1 half ounce broccoli and run until no pieces larger 
than 1 sixteenth inch remain, about 2 minutes.

Put  a 14 wire per inch strainer over a mixing bowl.

Pour the broccoli puree into the strainer.

Tap the strainer downward against the bowl or the palm of your hand to jog 
the liquid through the mesh.

Press with the bottom of a small tumbler or a large spoon to force 
liquid through strainer.

Discard solids.

Grind together 1 tablespoon flax seed and 2 tablespoons grain or grain flour 
in a coffee grinder set at finest, if needed to get a fine meal, grind twice.

Into a 2 cup blender put: broccoli puree, 3 ounces pear, 1 eighth cup plus 
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds, flax meal, 2 tablespoon grain flour, 
2 tablespoons sugar, 4 packets aspartame sweetner, and
1 quarter teaspoon salt.

Run until smooth, about 4 minutes.

Put the mixture into a mug or bowl.

If desired, warm in a microwave oven 20 to 50 seconds. 
Eat with a spoon.

Either:
(1. Eat the pudding as is, if desired, warm by heating in a microwave oven 
for a minute or so. 
(2. Place a 4 inch round casserole dish or similar utensil at the center of 
a 10 inch glass pie pan. Pour the batter around the center utensil.)
Or:
(3. Pour the batter into a 1 or 2 quart bundt pan.)
(4. Pour the batter into a 3 cup or larger microwaveable bowl.)
Cover the container with a piece of paper towel, newspaper, a plate, or 
a splatter guard to prevent spattering oven.
Heat until firm, 4 minutes in a 1000 watt oven. 

---------------------------
Math:
Add 5 seconds for oven to begin heating.
Add 30 seconds to heat containers. 
To raise to boiling: 8.6 ounces X 20 equals 172 seconds.
Dry weight is total weight minus water: 8.6 ounces - 4.5 ounces = 4.1 ounce.
Water to leave in is (50 percent water)/(50 percent dry weight) X (dry weight) = 
  50/50 X 4.1 = 4.1 oucnes.
Water to remove is total water minus water left in (4.5 - 4.1) = .4 ounces.
To evaporate excess water: 46 seconds per ounce times .4 ounces = 18 seconds.
To replace heat conducted to air during evaporation: 14 seconds per minute times 
  18/60 minutes = 5 seconds plus 5/60 times 14 seconds per minute equals
  1 second for a total of 6 seconds.
Assume fruit puree is 90 percent water, final product is 1 third water.
--------------------------------

Makes about 1 third of a light meal, add 
2 or 3 ounces vegetable and perhaps boiled peanuts  for a light meal
and alternate eating one then the other to reduce taste fatigue.

Sefinitely: salty, sweet, tangy; moderately pear flavored; 
slightly: starchy, bitter; pudding consistency.

]

If a coffee grinder or grain grinder is available:
[
Put into a metal pan: 1 eighth cup split peas and one cup water.

Heat on a cooktop until boiling, cover, reduce heat to low, heat until 
peas are soft, about 10 minutes.

Grind 1 eighth cup flax together with 1 eighth cup grain, grinding twice 
to get a fine meal.
]

Dump the lentils or peas into a strainer to get rid of the water.

Put the lentils or peas into a 3 cup or larger blender.

Put the grain/flax/water into the blender.

Remove peel from potato to yield 2 ounces.

Cut the potato into 1 inch pieces.

Put the potato into the blender.

Into the blender put: 
3 ounces pear,
1 half ounce apple,
1 tablespoons sugar and 6 packets aspartame sweeter,
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds, 
1 quarter teaspoon salt,
 and 1 cup
water (if using ground grain and ground flax, use an additional 3 tablespoons water),
1 eighth cup wheat, boiled or ground,
2 tablespoons flax seed, boiled or ground,
1 eighth cup boiled split peas,
1 quarter teaspoon salt.

When the greens are done heating,
remove water from the greens by first pouring into a strainer.

Dump the greens back into the heating pan.

Add 2 to 3 cups water to rinse and strain again.

Then either:

(1. Use a bowl that is about the same size and shape as the strainer to press 
  the water out of the greens.)
Or:
(2. Squeeze the greens in your hand to remove the water.)
Or:
(3. Put the greens in a sturdy bowl, place another same sized and shaped bowl 
  over the greens and press the bowls together. Invert the bowls and press down 
  to squeeze out water.) Squeeze as much water out of the greens as possible 
  by squeezing in your hand.

Yield is about 1  ounce greens. (add 1 teaspoon sugar for each
ounce over 1 ounces)

When greens have been readied add them to the blender (or 1 tablespoon 1 teaspoon 
spinach powder and reduce heat time by 40 seconds).

Process until smooth, about 4 minutes.

Add 1 tablespoon non bitter lighthly roasted (1 min 50 seconds) chestnut flour 
to the processor and run until mixed.

Either eat the food as is (makes one huge serving) or:
[
Put a 4-inch diameter glass jar or similar utensil at the center of a 

10-inch diameter glass piepan bowl.

Pour/spoon the batter around the 4-inch utensil.

Heat in a microwave oven until thickened, 19 minutes 35 seconds
in a 1000 watt oven. 

-------------------------
math: for 1 cup water, soaked flax/grain/seed
To heat to boiling: 20.5 ounces times 20 seconds per ounce = 410 seconds.
Plus 5 for oven to start heating.
Plus 40 for dish to heat.
Dry weight is total weight minus total water (20.5 - 15.55 = 5 ounces.
Water to leave in is 40/60 times dry weight (40/60 X 5) = 3.3 ounces.
Water to remove is total water minus water left in (15.5 - 3.3) = 12.2 ounces.
Plus to evaporate excess water: 46 times 12.2 ounce water = 561 seconds.
Plus to replace heat lost to air: 561/60 times 14 is 131 plus
  131/60 X 14 is 30 for a total of 161 seconds.
assume greens contain .7 ounces water, potato is 90 percent water, peas aborb 
their own weight in water when boiled, soaked grain/beans contains 1.5 ounces water.
--------------------------
For more even moisture content, immediately after heating, cut the biscuit loose 
from the dish and invert the biscuit.

If biscuits are gooey enough that large bits of food stick to a spoon, heat 
another 1 minute 20 seconds.

If gooey enough that tiny bits of food stick to a spoon, heat 1 minute.
If sticky but bits of food do not stick onto a spoon, let sit to dry for a few minutes.
]

Has enough calories and protein for a light meal, for a complete
light meal add 1 to 2 ounces of fruit or vegetable such as apple, grapes,
or perhaps raw rutabago or yam. For a large meal could also serve
3 ounces fruit such as half a banana
or Blueberry pudding.

Eaten without heating to firm, moderately: bitter/sweet, tangy, roasted chestnut flavored; 
mildly pear flavored, starchy, salty; slightly bitter/biting; 
thin pudding consistency, slightly gritty from the pear.

-----------------------------
Math:
5 seconds for oven to start heating.
Plus 80 seconds to heat dish.
21.6 ounces X 20 equals 432 seconds.
Dry weight is total weight minus water (21.6 - 13.8) = 7.8 ounces.
Water to leave in is 25/75 X dry weight (25/75 X 7.8) = 2.6 ounces.
Water to remove is total water minus water left in (13.8 - 2.6) = 11.2 ounces.
Plus to evaporate water 46 X 11.2 ounces water equals 515 seconds.
To replace heat lost to air 515/60 times 14 is 120 plus 
   120/60 times 14 is 28 for a total of 148 seconds
(assume vegetable and fruit is 90 percent water, meat is 40 percent water)

for both Tomato broccoli and Fruit carrot, that is 1 quarter cup total, use 2 cups water.

If using dry beans or lentils, put 1 eighth cup or lentils into a metal pan 1 cup water. 
Heat on a cooktop until boiling, cover, reduce heat to low, heat until the beans are 
soft, 10 to 60 minutes depending on type of bean. on low. Pour the beans/water into a 
strainer to discard water. 

Put into a 2 cup or larger blender:
 1 ounce apple,
 1 ounce banana
 1 eighth cup dried beans,
 2 ounces carrot,
 2 tablespoons flax seed
 1 tablespoon wheat bran plus 1 tablespoon water
 2 tablespoons sugar, 
 3 packets aspartame sweetner, and
 1 half cup water.

Run until smooth and no significant lumps can be felt when pinched between
2 fingers, about 5 minutes.

Put the fruit/carrot batter into an 8-inch pie pan.

Place the pie pan on top of the casserole dish/pie pan already in the oven.

Heat, until firm and dry in a microwave oven,
15 minutes 10 seconds in a 1000 watt oven or
25 minutes in a 600 watt oven.

-----------------------------
Math:
5 seconds for oven to start heating.
Plus 80 seconds to heat dish.
15.95 ounces X 20 equals 319 seconds.
Dry weight is total weight minus water (15.95 - 10.4) = 5.5 ounces.
Water to leave in is 25/75 X dry weight (25/75 X 5.5) = 1.8 ounces.
Water to remove is total water minus water left in (10.4 - 1.8) = 8.6 ounces.
Plus to evaporate water 46 X 8.6 ounces water equals 396 seconds.
To replace heat lost to air 396/60 times 14 is 90 plus 
   90/60 times 14 is 21 for a total of 111 seconds
(assume carrot and fruit is 90 percent water, broccoli is 80 percent water, 
meat is 40 percent water)
------------------------

While the combination is heating prepare Tomato broccoli seed bean:



Tomato broccoli peanut instructions:
If using blanched skinless peanuts, they can be used without boiling but 
are slightly bitter. For a slightly less bitter taste, boil and drain as 
dry beans are prepared.

If using dry beans, put 1 eighth cup beans and 1 cup water into a metal pan. 
Heat on a cooktop until boiling, cover, reduce heat to low, heat until 
beans are soft, 10 to 60 minutes depending on type of bean.

Pour the beans/water into a strainer to discard water. 

Put into a 2 cup or larger blender:
1 half ounce broccoli plus 1 half ounce tomato
1 eighth cup walnuts

then see continue with instructions for the combinations.

-----------------------------
Math:
5 seconds for oven to start heating.
Plus 80 seconds to heat dish.
15.6 ounces X 20 equals 312 seconds.
Dry weight is total weight minus water (15.6 - 12) = 3.6 ounces.
Water to leave in is 25/75 X dry weight (25/75 X 3.6) = 1.2 ounces.
Water to remove is total water minus water left in (12 - 1.2) = 10.8 ounces.
Plus to evaporate water 46 X 10.8 ounces water equals 499 seconds.
To replace heat lost to air 499/60 times 14 is 117 plus 
   117/60 times 14 is 27 for a total of 144 seconds
(assume carrot and fruit is 90 percent water, broccoli is 80 percent water, 
meat is 40 percent water, about 1 ounce of water is lost when flax/seed is boiled)
------------------------

Take the top pie pan off the casserole dish.

Remove the casserole dish from the bottom piepan.

Cut the biscuit ring into six pieces and flip over.
If gooey on bottoms, enough that large bits of food stick
to a finger, heat another 1 minute, if gooey enough that
tiny bits of food stick to a finger, heat 40 seconds, if sticky feeling
but no food sticks onto a finger, heat 30 seconds.

Cut the biscuit into bit sized pieces.

Use a spatula to cut the Fruit carrot biscuit loose from its pie pan.

    plus 3 tablespoons water
1 ounce broccoli
1 eighth cup (.75 ounce) skinless blanched (buff) peanuts
  or 1 tablespoon (.25 ounces) soy bean flour
1 quarter cup (2 ounces) sugar
  or 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) sugar plus 3 packets (about .1 ounce) aspartame
1 tablespoons non roasted 30 percent added oil sunflower
   seed butter 
  or 3 tablespoons sunflower seed (1 ounce) non roasted sunflower seeds
  or 1 tablespoon roasted 30 percent added oil sunflower seed butter 
     (if too thick to mix add 1 
    tsp wtr)
   or 1 tablespoon roasted tahini
  or 1 ounce almonds or other nut
  or 2 teaspoons canola oil plus 2 teaspoons grain or grain flour
1 tablespoon (.4 ounce) flax seed
1 tablespoon (.3 ounces) grain flour
1 quarter teaspoon salt
3 quarters cup (6 ounces) water
total: 13.5 ounces, 8.65 ounces water

Cut 1 ounce greens every 1 quarter inch.

Either:
(1. Put the chopped greens and 2 cups water into a large bowl.
Heat in a microwave oven until boiling, about 6 minutes in a 1000 watt oven.)
Or:
(2. Put the greens and 2 cups water into a metal pan and heat on a cooktop until 
boiling, about 6 minutes.)

Press the greens down into the water.

Cover and heat on low for 40 minutes.

When 10 minutes remains until the greens are finished leaching, add 
1 eighth cup non roasted peanuts.

Remove water from the greens/peanuts by first pouring into a strainer.

Dump the greens/peanuts back into the heating pan.

Add 2 to 3 cups water to rinse.

Strain again.

Yield is 2.5 ounces greens/peanuts.

If peanuts have skins, remove skin which have a slightly 
bitter/biting/astringent taste.

If a coffee grinder is available, grind together 1 tablespoon flax seed and 
1 tablespoon grain or grain flour with the grinder set at finest grind. 
Run the mixture through the grinder twice to get a fine meal.

Put into a 3 cup or larger blender: 
 2 ounces mackerel 
 2 ounces pear,
 3 tablespoons sunflower seeds,
 1 eighth cup peanuts, 
 2 tablespoons sugar,
 3 packets aspartame sweetner,
 1 quarter teaspoon salt, 
 3 quarters cup water (add more if needed to blend correctly, add 1 minute heat time 
   for each 1 ounce added water)
 and the greens.

Run until smooth, about 6 minutes.

Add to the blender:
 1 tablespoon flax seed (or 1 tablespoon ground flax seed) and 
 1 tablespoon grain flour(or 1 tablespoon ground grain).

Run until well mixed, about 1 minute.

Divide the slurry equally into 4 3- to 4-inch diameter one-cup bowls or round 
casserole dishes. 

Or place a 6-inch diameter round casserole dish or bowl with vertical or nearly 
vertical sides at the center of a 10-inch diameter glass piepan and pour/spoon 
the batter into the space around the center utensil. 

Place the containers opposite each other across the center of a microwave oven.

Heat until thickened, 12 minutes 40 seconds in a 1000 watt microwave oven (if 
3 quarter cup added water), add 1 minute for each ounce over 3 quarters cup of 
added water.

-------------------------------------------------
Math:
Plus 5 seconds for oven to begin heating
Plus 60 seconds to heat dishes
To bring to boil: 14.5 ounces X 20 equals 290
Dry weight is total weight minus total water (14.5 - 9.65) = 4.85 ounces
Water to leave in (40 parts water)/(60 parts dry weight) times 
  dry weight (2/3 X 4.85) = 3.2 ounces
Water to remove is total water minus water left in (9.65 - 3.2) = 6.45 ounces
Plus to evaporate excessive water: 46 X 6.4 ounces water equals 294 seconds
To replace heat lost to air: 294/60 X 14 seconds per minute is 69 plus
   69/60 X 14 seconds per minute is 16 seconds
total is 85 seconds heating to replace heat lost to air.
(assume broccoli is 80 percent water, mackerel is 40 percent water, 
peanuts absorb 1/3 their dry weight in water when boiled 10 minutes, final product is 40 percent water to 60 percent dry weight.
------------------------------------------------

If a less gooey bottom is desired, when hot just out of the oven, remove 
center utensil, cut food loose from dish with a knife, cut into 8 pieces, 
flip each piece, heat another 1 minute 45 seconds.

Definitely: sweet, tangy; moderately starchy; mildly salty; 
a little too thick/firm to be called a pudding, too moist, dense to be a biscuit; sliglty chewy; desert-like sweetness and flavor intensity.

Makes 2 servings.

Small quantities of broccoli can be eaten without cooking. Raw broccoli is 
crunchier, chewier, has a sharper flavor, and I suppose has more of
some vitamins. Raw broccoli is good with chopped walnuts and oil. 
Just chop the broccoli into smaller pieces to give it better mouth feel. 
Double the oil to make the taste milder. Perhaps cut down the portion size 
to less than the amount of cooked broccoli you would eat . In general the 
digestive system is able to deal with smaller amounts of raw vegetables.

-------------------------------------------------
Math:
Plus 5 seconds for oven to begin heating
Plus 30 seconds to heat dishes
To bring to boil: 11.8 ounces X 20 equals 236
Dry weight is total weight minus total water (11.8 - 8.2) = 3.6 ounces
Water to leave in (40 parts water)/(60 parts dry weight) times 
  dry weight (2/3 X 3.6) = 2.4 ounces
Water to remove is total water minus water left in (8.2 - 2.4) = 5.8 ounces
Plus to evaporate excessive water: 46 X 5.8 ounces water equals 267 seconds
To replace heat lost to air: 267/60 X 14 seconds per minute is 64 plus

Broccoli yams peas seeds flour

1/8 cup sunflower seeds (.7 ounces)
3 ounces broccoli
2 ounces yams
1 teaspoon orange juice concentrate
1 teaspoon olive oil or canola oil or grapeseed oil
1 tablespoon whole wheat flour

1 tablespoons sugar
1 pinch salt (150 milligrams)

the countertop to jar the mixture into the path of the cutting blades.

Stirring down the sides of the processor bowl several times might be
necessary to get a fine texture.

If you often use sunflower seed meal, it is convenient to make it a cup
at a time and keep it in the fridge in a jar with a lid. 

Makes one very large serving that is enough for a whole meal
