Dr. Joel Fuhrman takes great pride in creating healthy and nutritious recipes that are also delicious. This soup is packed with hearty, filling and flavorful vegetables. Scientific studies find that colorful plant foods contain thousands of healthy, protective nutrients essential for good health. Fuhrman says that they’re the best medicine for a long, healthy life. This recipe makes a large pot of soup, so share it with friends or save it in the refrigerator to enjoy throughout the week.

Ingredients:

1 cup dried split peas and/or beans
4 cups water
4 medium onions
6-10 medium zucchini
3 leek stalks
2 bunches kale or collard greens
5 lbs.of carrots (or 4-5 cups carrot juice)
2 bunches organic celery (or 2 cups celery juice)
2 Tbs. Dr. Fuhrman’s VegiZest (or 2 veg bouillon cubes)
1 cup raw cashews
1 package mushrooms (any variety), chopped

Note: This recipe works best with a juicer and powerful blender/food processor.

Directions:

  1. Place peas and water in a very large pot and cook covered on the lowest heat possible.
  2. Remove outer skins from onions; add whole onions & whole zucchinis to the pot and cover.
  3. Cut the bottom roots off the leeks and slice them up the side so each leaf can be washed; throw away the last inch at the top and place entire leek into the pot.
  4. Strip leaves from kale or collard stems and discard stems; chop leaves and add to pot.
  5. Juice the carrots and celery in a juice extractor; add juice & VegiZest or cubes to the pot.
  6. While pot is simmering, chop mushrooms. By this time, zucchini & onions should be soft.
  7. Ladle some liquid from the pot into a powerful blender or food processor; use tongs to remove onions, zucchini, and leeks (leave beans and kale in the pot); in a few separate batches, blend together onions, zucchini, and leeks; return blended mixture to pot.
  8. Next, place some soup liquid and cashews into the food processor and blend until creamy.
  9. Return the blended mixture back to the pot; add mushrooms and simmer 20 minutes.

    No between-meal snacks? :( I’ll do my best to abide by this one, even though I eat fresh fruit, veggies, and grains 8 times out of 10. But abstaining from all animal products will be smooth sailing for me :) I’ll definitely need to check this book out!

    Just wondering — why no dried fruit?

  4. Chloe Jo says:

    They say it’s too high in sugar, cancer-forming, etc. But you’d need to read the book. I personally eat plenty of dried fruit – but I know fresh fruit is optimum.

    Hey guys, I’m Dr. F’s daughter and I love this recipe :) I can answer the question about dried fruit. Dr. Fuhrman doesn’t permit it in Eat to Live because it is a weight loss book and dried fruit is high in calories and easy to overeat on. It is a health food in moderation and has no link to cancer. If you maintain a physically active lifestyle/are not trying to lose weight, dry fruit is yummy. I love dried pineapple and papaya. It is somewhat high in natural sugar, but as long as you only eat a serving (or two ;-P) there is no problem with it. My dad lovessss dried papaya!!
