Recipe graciously shared by Lori Lee Mayne, co-owner of Curry-in-a-Hurry with her husband Hans in the town of Lahaina on Maui in the Hawai’ian Islands (www.curryinahurrymaui.com)

  • 1 medium cabbage
  • 1-2 Tbsp. sunflower oil
  • 1/2 tsp. Mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. Cumin seeds
  • 1/8 tsp. Hing (Asafoetida)
  • 1/2 tsp. Turmeric
  • 1 tsp. Sea salt
  • 1-1/2 tsp. Coriander powder
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. Honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 green pepper, chopped (optional)

Wash and chop cabbage into small 1/2-inch shreds. Heat oil in large heavy skillet, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, hing. When mustard seeds pop, add turmeric, cabbage and remaining ingredients (except honey). Cook 5-10 minutes. Stir in honey after taking cabbage off heat. Enjoy! Serves 4-5 as side dish.

Curcumin is a molecule with multiple cancer fighting activities found in the spice turmeric often included as an ingredient in Indian food, curries, even yellow mustard! You may read more about this in the following article: Multiple molecular targets in cancer chemoprevention in curcumin (http://www.aapsj.org/view.asp?art=aapsj080352)
Turmeric itself is not a strongly flavored spice. I often find myself adding it to many foods for a little extra flavor and color.


In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.

I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes".   I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book.  I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.

If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me.  If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe.  If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
