  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cumin
  • dash cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
  • 2 cups carrots strips or slices
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp. golden raisins


  • Heat the olive oil in a large sauce pan over moderate heat.
  • Reduce heat to low, add sugar, spieces, and carrots, stirring for a few minutes.
  • Add the OJ and raisins.
  • Bring to a boil, quickly reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the carrots are tender.
  • Add the cayenne pepper and sprinkle with chopped parsley or mint if desired (and available).

Makes 4 servings. Don't let any extra sauce go down the drain. It can be spooned over brown rice. Yummy!


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.
