The Cancer Project / Fourth of July Menu
I can't say enough about the valuable resources of The Physicians' Committee for Responsible Medicine - founded by Dr. Neal Barnard. The link these recipes can be found on is his Cancer Project division - and you can even view a video of Marilu Henner's recommended Ginger Jalapeno Summer Slaw there. Do click on the title of this blog entry to see the great menu, recipes and photos. I'd love to hear what you try - and what where your biggest hits.
What are you serving/being served on the 4th?? I'm gonna also prepare some burgers -taken from The New York Times Veggie Burgers - and I bought a prepared barbeque sauce by Annie that sounded healthy and good - to marinate some tempeh which should grill nicely.
Here's the Engine 2 Burger recipe - which was inspired by the Esselstyns -- who - by the way are also featured at the NAVS Summerfest in Johnstown PA - Tuesday through Saturday - July 5th -9th. Rip, professional athlete-turned-firefighter and son of surgeon and researcher Caldwell B. Esselstyn Jr, MD --Rip sprung into action after learning that some of his fellow Engine 2 firefighters were having serious health problems. Everyone who followed his plant-based Engine 2 Diet lost weight, lowered their cholesterol and improved their overall health -- so with these amazing results - why not prepare this great burger recipe - baked not fried -- or even saute on medium heat in a sprayed nonstick skillet for 5 miknutes on each side until both sides are browned.
Perhaps Patty Lemer and I will guide our Wellness workshop participants in making this great burger at our August 6th special event in the 'burgh.
Pre-heat oven to 450 F Process the first seven ingredients using an immersion or regular blender or food processor. Remove contents into a large bowl, and stir in oats. Form into patties, place on sprayed baking sheet (I use canola) and bake for 8 minutes. Turn oven up to broil and cook for 2 more minutes until the tops are nicely browned. Toast the buns and pile on your favorite toppings.
Yield 8 patties
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can tomatoes with zesty mild chilies, drained
1 garlic clove, minced or pressed, or 1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 green onions, chopped
1 cup carrots, chopped
1 cup parsley or cilantro
2 cups quick rolled oats
8 whole grain sprouted buns
Plus great fresh veggie toppings and multiple healthy condiment choices.
