I pulled out an old recipe that I had not made for years and years for some holiday parties this year. Everyone raved about it, most importantly my family!

  • 2 lbs. small button fresh mushrooms (wipe off with a paper towel and trim off the end of the stems)
  • 2/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup oil (olive or canola)
  • 2-3 large garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley (can omit)
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar or maple syrup

Heat all ingredients except mushrooms. Bring to boil. Add mushrooms. Simmer 15 minutes. Cool for a few hours in the refrigerator. Drain and serve.

I saved the juices that were drained from the mushrooms to use in various ways:
(1) Added a handful of frozen raspberries to the juices in a blender and used as salad dressing
(2) Added a couple of tablespoons to soups for additional flavoring
(3) Added ~1/3 in the food processor to 8 oz steamed tempeh, a bunch of green onions to make a yummy sandwich/cracker spread.
(4) Still thinking of other ways to use this rich and luscious liquid!


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.
