I swear, Joel Fuhrman needs to hire someone to give his recipes better names. Can you imagine having someone over for dinner and telling them that you are going to serve your specialite de la maison: "High Cruciferous Vegetable Stew"? Frankly, it sounds like something that you eat the day before you are executed. Or maybe during some kind of famine when you can't find anything else to eat.
The recipe is promising: three kinds of beans , two leafy greens, two green veggies , mushrooms, celery, leeks, carrots, parsnips, zucchini, tomatoes, and more. I think it's going to be tasty--and very green.
How about Green Giant Vegetable Stew? That sounds fun and adventurous, doesn't it? Or Three Bean and Ten Veggie Soup? Or Red and Green Stew? (two kinds of red beans)
Well, I guess if you're a nutritarian and tuned into nutrition above all else, "High Cruciferous" is an attractive title. Just don't be surprised when you cheerily ask, "Ok, everybody, who wants some High Cruciferous Stew?", and you're the only one who wants to eat it.
