  • 46 oz. low-sodium V-8 juice
  • 16 oz. frozen soup vegetable mixture
  • 15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 15 oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp. pesto sauce (homemade or purchased)
  • 1/2 of 16 oz. bag of chopped turnip greens and diced turnips
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 oz. dried pasta (cook separately and add at the end - I used Bella Terra Soia Penne Rigate by Racconto)


Add all ingredients (except pasta) to a large soup pot. Heat over medium heat until it reaches a boiling temperature. Keep stirring as needed to distribute frozen veggies. Heat 15-20 minutes, while getting pasta cooked and making salad or whatever else you would like to serve. This makes alot, about 3 quarts, so you have plenty for a large family meal or several smaller frozen meals to put away for a later day.


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.
