As promised, I tackled Dr. Fuhrman's famous Anti-Cancer Soup yesterday. It took about an hour all told and managed to dirty several major appliances. I'm thinking that probably Dr Fuhrman doesn't have to wash his own dishes. The soup was good, but it wasn't THAT good.
The actual recipe can be found here. Here it is in pictures:
Into a pot you put green split peas, whole onions, whole zucchini, whole leeks and a little water. You start that cooking while you juice this:
That's a big mess o'carrots and celery and it makes this:
You add the carrot-celery juice to the veggies and peas in the pot. Wash your juicer and chop a bunch of mushrooms. By then, the veggies in the pot are soft and you can take them out and puree them in your blender:
Then you add raw cashews to the blender.
The cashews are there to make the soup creamy and smoky-tasting. Also, the soup has not had any oil or fat yet, so here the cashews will be taking that role in a very healthy way.
Finally you add in the mushrooms and some tvp plus whatever sort of seasoning you're using (I used salt, pepper and Hawaij for soup, because I have decided that everything is better with Hawaij on it).
Let it cook for another 20 minutes or so while you clean the disaster that is now your kitchen and finally...
Soup. Everybody ate it.
(although I am willing to consider the possibility that they were afraid of what would happen if they didn't...)
Lastly, because man cannot live on soup alone, I give you Dog + Shoe:
