Food Quotes


"No therapy or drug known to modern medical science can rebuild tissue that has been damaged by disease or trauma. Food alone can accomplish this feat. It is for this reason that nutrition is an indispensable weapon against disease".
Dr. Bernard Jensen (1908-2001)

Hearty Minestrone Soup

3 T. extra virgin, expeller-pressed olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 large stalk celery, finely chopped
1 t. dried basil
1/2 t. dried oregano
1/2 t. dried rosemary
8 c. chicken bone stock (click here for recipe)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 thin-skinned potatoes, largely diced
2 carrots, peeled and largely diced
2/3 c. organic small brown rice shell pasta or elbow macaroni (Tinkyada brown rice pasta
is excellent)
1 (16-oz.) can red or white kidney beans
1/4 c. tomato paste
2 c. kale leaves or green cabbage, finely shredded
1 1/2 c. Jack or Parmesan cheese, shredded
Directions: Heat oil in a 6-quart pan over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery, and herbs. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft, about 7 minutes. Add stock, garlic, potatoes, carrots and pasta. Increase heat. Cover pot and bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until pasta is barely tender, about 15 minutes. Mix in beans and bean liquid, tomato paste and kale (or cabbage). Simmer uncovered, until kale is barely tender and soup is heated through, about 5-10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Top with grated cheese, if desired. Serves 8.
