Còn vừng là một loại hạt kỳ diệu. Khi Mỹ rải chất phát quang, tất cả các loại thực vật đều chết hết, chỉ riêng cây vừng vẫn sống bình thường, vẫn cho hoa, cho quả. Kỳ lạ hơn, khi phân tích hạt vừng trong vùng bị rải chất độc màu da cam, các nhà khoa học không tìm thấy chất dioxin. Điều này chứng tỏ hạt vừng có tính lọc độc rất cao. Lại có người nói rằng, ăn gạo lứt muối vừng sẽ làm yếu sinh lý. Hoàn toàn không phải như thế.

- Crush and grind the seaweed in a suribachi until it becomes a fine powder. Use as you would gomashio.

- Be careful to grind the seaweed before adding the seeds or the seeds will be ground too much.
TEKKA: A Condiment to counteract anemia
Tekka can be used to improve anemia instead of iron pills. This condiment, consisting mainly of root vegetables, is delicious sprinkled in small amounts over grains or vegetables. It is a very strong, yang food and has an uplifting effect on energy level. About one-quarter teaspoon should be enough if used daily. If you use too much you may find yourself wanting to drink excessive quantities of orange juice, coffee, or to use vinegar or other acid foods not particularly conducive to improving an anemic condition.
Recipe for Tekka:
1 medium burdock root
1 medium lotus root
1 small carrot
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 teaspoon chirimen iriko (little dried fishes)
1 1/2 cups Mugi (barley) or Genmai (brown rice) miso
2/3 cup sesame oil
Cut vegetables as small as possible. If you have a food processor or a vitamix this works well. Heat the oil in a cast-iron skillet, and sauté the burdock until the color is light brown and the smell has changed. Then add the chirimen iriko, carrots, and lotus root, cooking each one a little bit before adding the next. Mix in Miso and grated ginger and, reducing the heat, simmer for about four to six hours until dry and crumbly. Mix the tekka gently every 15 to 20 minutes to prevent burning. When the tekka is cool, it can be stored at room temperature for many months without spoiling
