Gazpacho, which is made with foods that have powerful anti-cancer activity, tastes best when tomatoes are in season. However, I could eat this soup everyday year round and never get tired of it.

  • 2 cups cucumber, peeled, seeded, and finely diced (2 medium sized cukes worked fine)
  • 4 scallions, chopped white and green section
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh curly parsley
  • 1/2 cup jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 cups tomato based vegetable juice (I used low-sodium juice and then modify the salt as needed for desired taste)
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 orange bell pepper, seeded and and finely diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and finely diced
  • 4 Roma (Italian plum) tomatoes, finely diced (I keep the seeds and the yellow *goo* in the soup for their anti-cancer activity)
  • 1-2 shakes of Tobasco Sauce or to taste
  • Additional plain yogurt and parsley springs for garnish


  1. Combine 1 cup cucumber, scallions, parsley, jalapeno pepper, garlic, salt, pepper and lemon juice in a food processor and pulse until well chopped.
  2. Add the vegetable juice and yogurt, then pulse until ingredients are well blended. Take care not to over-process. There still should be small bits of vegetable in the soup.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a large soup bowl, and add remaining ingredients. Stir well and season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Chill for 1 hour.
  4. To serve, garnish with a dollop of plain yogurt and fresh parsley. makes 4-6 generous servings.


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.
