  • 1-1/2 cup brown rice (I use Basmati Rice by Lundburg Farms)
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tart apple (like Granny Smith) - wash, dice into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • teaspoon butter
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • While rice is cooking (takes ~45-50 minutes), melt butter in saucepan. Add apples and raisins to melted butter and heat until fruit is slightly softened.
  • When rice is done cooking, fluff with fork. Season with salt and pepper. (I omitted this step accidentally and didn't miss it at all.)
  • Turn into serving dish and then top with apple-raisin mixture.

Makes about 5 cups of rice. Serve as a side dish with any entree like salmon, chicken, or tofu. (save about 2 cups to make rice pudding the next day, or even that evening.)



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.
