The Emerald City Soup Recipe in the wonderful cookbook One Bite at a Time by Rebecca Katz, Celestial Arts, Berkeley, CA, 2004, inspired this recipe. The first thing I look for in a new cookbook is if the author has included recipes for kale and other greens; that's how important I think those foods are! There are many such healthy recipes in this cookbook written for people with a cancer diagnosis. I highly recommend it.
When I first read the recipe, I knew I had to make it right then and there. Thus, my variations are simply based on what I had in the house at that moment in time. I am sure the original recipe is downright delicious and maybe even better than mine.
If there is any left, this is also good the next morning right out of the refrigerator
Rebecca states that this soup will not freeze well because the brilliant color is lost. So, make a bunch and eat your greens with a spoon!
This was absolutely delicious served with Bowl O'Beans (aha! Greens and Beans), whole grain bread, and fresh fruit.
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.
