Makes 2 cups



2 cups carrot juice

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

1/8 tsp. chili powder

1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp. ground cloves

1 tbsp. cornstarch

1 tbsp. cold water

1 tbsp. chopped cilantro

1/4 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. white pepper

Peaches and Cream Smoothie


Place fruit in the blender and enough milk to just cover the fruit. 

Add the remainder of the ingredients and blend until smooth.


1 ripe peach, peeled

1/2 ripe banana

1 tsp. fructose (sugar)

1/2 - 1 cup nonfat evaporated milk

1/2 tsp. almond extract

5-6 ice cubes

Navy Bean Sauce over Grilled Vegetables


In a medium saucepan, place the beans and 1/2 cup broth, garlic, onion, cumin, salt and pepper to taste, and olive oil. 

Bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes.  Add the chili oil. 

Place the mixture in a blender and puree until creamy smooth, adding additional broth to reach the desired consistency.

Brush the vegetable slices with olive oil and place them on a grill until grill marks appear. 

Place the vegetables on a plate and spoon the bean sauce over the top. 

Garnish with grated cheese.


1 cup cooked white beans

1/2 cup vegetable sauce, plus 1/2 cup for the puree

2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped

1/4 cup diced onion

1/4  tsp. ground cumin

salt and pepper

2 Tb. extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 cup roasted red bell peppers, peeled and seeded

12 drops chili oil or a dash of cayenne (optional)

grated hard cheese, such as parmesan, asiago or grana pedano for garnish

6 squash, such as zucchini, crookneck or summer squash, or vegetables of choice such as onion slices, mushrooms, bell peppers

Fresh Vegetable Napoleon


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Place the matchstick vegetables on a baking sheet that has been lightly coated with olive oil.  

Spray the vegetables with a light coat of olive oil. Sprinkle the herbs, salt and pepper onto the vegetables.  Bake for 5-7 minutes.

While the vegetables are baking, heat a skillet and spray lightly with olive oil. Add the Swiss Chard and sautÈ until wilted, approximately 1 minute. Toss the vegetables together in a bowl.

On each individual serving plate, pour out the Spicy Carrot broth to mostly cover the bottom of the plate. Put a piece of Lavosh in the center of the plate and then a small amount of vegetable mixture on top. 

Place another piece of Lavosh onto the vegetable mixture, rotating it slightly clockwise so that the points of the triangles do not match up. Repeat with layering the vegetable mixture in this fashion until the stack has 4-5 layers. 

Drizzle a small amount of balsamic over the Napoleon and dot it around the inner rim of the plate.  Finally, place the last piece of Lavosh on the top. Serve immediately. 

Serves 4


12 chick pea Lavosh triangles (recipe included)

2 cups Swiss chard, cleaned and roughly chopped

1 cup parsnips, peeled and cut into French-fry sized matchsticks

1 cup butternut squash, peeled, seeded, cut into matchsticks

1 cup beets, peeled and cut into matchsticks

extra-virgin olive oil in a spray bottle

pinch of fresh herbs of choice, such as thyme, oregano, basil, chives

pinch of salt

sprinkle of black pepper

balsamic vinegar

Spicy Carrot Broth (recipe included)

Chick Pea Lavosh


Place the onion, garlic and vinegar in a food processor and process until it is completely liquid. Add the dry ingredients and spices. 

Pulse for 2-3 seconds only, until a dough is formed. Remove the dough to a work surface and knead with additional chick pea flour as needed, until the dough is smooth and firm.  

Cut the dough in quarters, place it on a lightly floured surface and roll it out thinly , then cut in triangles, pierce them with a fork and brush them with water. 

Place the triangles on a nonstick baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for about 5-7 minutes until golden brown.


1 cup yellow onion, peeled and coarsely chopped

2 Tb. roasted garlic

1 Tb. seasoned rice vinegar

2 cups chick pea (garbanzo) flour

1 cup unbleached flour

1 cup seminola flour

1 tsp. ground cumin

1 tsp. ground coriander

1 tsp. salt

black pepper

Vegetable and Potato Tart with a Truffle Corn Broth

Place the red bell peppers on a grill or directly onto the burner of a gas stove and roast them to a blackened surface. Set aside to cool in a tightly covered container. When cooled, peel off the skin of the pepper. Set aside.

In a large hot skillet, spray 1 tbsp. olive oil and sautÈ the mushrooms until soft. Spray a 10" x 12" x 2" baking pan with vegetable oil. Spray oil on one side of a piece of parchment that has been cut to fit the bottom of the baking pan. 

Place it, oiled side up, into the bottom of the pan. Lay the potatoes on the bottom of the baking pan in rows, overlapping slightly, until the bottom layer is covered (approximately 5 potatoes.)  Sprinkle the layer with a small amount of potato starch and season with salt, pepper, and herbs.  Place a layer of squash over the potatoes. Season with herbs, salt and pepper. 

Repeat the process with whole strips of roasted peppers, then 1/2 of the cooked mushrooms, spreading them out evenly to make another layer.  After seasoning the layer, repeat the process with spinach, being sure to lay it as evenly as possible. Repeat the process again with all of the layers.  Finish with a layer of potatoes to complete.  

The entire tart consists of 3 layers of potatoes with 2 vegetable layers in between.  Spray a sheet of parchment paper on one sides and place it, oiled side to the potatoes, on top of the tart.  Place another baking pan or casserole dish of equal size on top and weigh it down with bricks, water or another heavy object that can withstand the heat of the oven. 

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for approximately 1 hour, or until the tart is soft in the center, which can be checked by inserting a small knife into the center of the tart. Cool the tart before cutting and serving.  Serve with the Truffled Corn Broth (recipe below).

In saucepan, cook olive oil, corn, onions, garlic and potatoes, for about 3 min until soft. Then add the broth, thyme and bay leaf.  Simmer until the potatoes are soft.
