Weekly-Furhman soup: Famous Anti-cancer Soup (updated 2012)

Sunday, September 08, 2013


I am trying to make a soup-a-week and freeze in smaller portions for the whole week,
I was successful last week. I always need to shop first. emoticon

1/2 cup dried split peas
1/2 cup dried adzuki or cannellini beans
4 cups water
6-10 medium zucchini
5 pounds large organic carrots, juiced (5-6 cups juice; see note)*
2 bunches celery, juiced (2 cups juice; see note)*
2 tablespoons Dr. Fuhrman's VegiZest (or other no-salt seasoning blend, adjusted to taste)
1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash no-salt seasoning
4 medium onions, chopped
3 leek stalks, cut lengthwise and cleaned carefully, then coarsely chopped
2 bunches kale, collard greens or other greens, tough stems and center ribs removed and leaves chopped
1 cup raw cashews
2 1/2 cups chopped fresh mushrooms (shiitake, cremini and/o white)
Place the beans and water in a very large pot over low heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer. Add the zucchini whole to the pot. Add the carrot juice, celery juice, VegiZest and Mrs. Dash.
Put the onions, leeks and kale in a blender and blend with a little bit of the soup liquid. Pour this mixture into the soup pot.
Remove the softened zucchini with tongs and blend them in the blender with the cashews until creamy. Pour this mixture back into the soup pot. Add the mushrooms and continue to simmer the beans until soft, about 2 hours total cooking time.
* Freshly juiced organic carrots and celery will maximize the flavor of this soup.

    I like the idea of blending the zucchini, they always get mushy if they're cooked too long.

I can eat almost everything in this recipe - would spinach or baby spinach work instead of kale do you think? Gotta save this recipe and try it.
