This is a variation on a recipe I saw demonstrated at Whole Foods Market many years ago.


  1. Cook 1-1/2 cups brown rice and let cool. If you need something quicker, you may use bulgur or whole wheat cous cous (follow directions on package). This is a great way to use left over rice or any other whole grain. Kashi is also great!
  2. 1 lb. tempeh – dice into 1 inch cubes
  3. Place tempeh in a pot with a lid. Cover with water and add 1/4 cup tamari or low-sodium soy sauce. Cover with lid and simmer for 1 hour.
  4. Drain and cool tempeh.
  5. Dice 1 cup celery, 1/2 cup green onions (white and green parts), and 1/2 cup roasted red pepper.
  6. In a bowl, mix the following very well:
    • 1/2 cup hummus
    • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
    • 2 Tbsp. tamari
    • 2 Tbsp. cumin powder
    • 1 Tbsp. coriander powder
    • 1 Tbsp. tumeric
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
    • 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  7. Mash Tempeh to desired texture by hand rather than a food processor (I like to leave it still a bit lumpy). Add the cooked and cooled rice or other whole grain. Thoroughly combine with hummus and spice mix. Taste and adjust as needed.

This is great great great sandwich spread simply filled with ingredients that have cancer-fighting molecules. Eat up to enjoy and celebrate health!


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.
