  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped
  • 2-3 boiled potatoes, chilled and diced (leave skins on)
  • 1-15 ounce can kidney beans
  • 1/2 cup water
  • seasonings - dash of salt, pepper, garlic powder, tabasco sauce, Mrs. Dash seasoning


  • Heat olive oil in large fying pan. Saute onion until soft.
  • Add green and red peppers and saute briefly.
  • Add diced potatoes, mix well. Cook for 10 minutes, turning with spatula every 2 minutes.
  • While this is cooking, rinse the beans well to remove the *goo*, then mash 1/2 to 2/3 of the beans with a potato masher. Mix the beans into the mixture in the frying pan, add 1/2 cup water, and cover. Cook over medium
    heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Season to taste, serve, and enjoy. This serves two or one very hungry person. (I ate it all the first time Dick made it as I was very hungry and it was soooo good!)

Serving Suggestion: For turkey hash, substitute diced turkey for kidney beans. Or you may simply add diced turkey to this recipe for those who want to use up that left-over holiday (or anyday) turkey.


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.
