Dr. Fuhrman's Anti-Cancer Soup

1/2 cup dried split peas
1/2 cup dried adzuki or cannellini beans
4 cups water
6-10 medium zucchini
5 pounds large organic carrots, juiced (5-6 cups juice; see note)*
2 bunches celery, juiced (2 cups juice; see note)*
2 tablespoons Dr. Fuhrman’s VegiZest (or other no-salt seasoning blend, adjusted to taste)
1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash no-salt seasoning
4 medium onions, chopped
3 leek stalks, cut lengthwise and cleaned carefully, then coarsely chopped
2 bunches kale, collard greens or other greens, tough stems and center ribs removed and leaves chopped
1 cup raw cashews
2 1/2 cups chopped fresh mushrooms (shiitake, cremini and/or white)


Place the beans and water in a very large pot over low heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer. Add the zucchini whole to the pot. Add the carrot juice, celery juice, VegiZest and Mrs. Dash.

Put the onions, leeks and kale in a blender and blend with a little bit of the soup liquid. Pour this mixture into the soup pot.

Remove the softened zucchini with tongs and blend them in the blender with the cashews until creamy. Pour this mixture back into the soup pot. Add the mushrooms and continue to simmer the beans until soft, about 2 hours total cooking time.

* Freshly juiced organic carrots and celery will maximize the flavor of this soup.

We love the new flavor twist that Veronica Grace brings of brings to this recipe.  Plus, she shows how to make this soup by reducing the chopping of all the vegetables.


  1. If I don’t have a juicer, can I do the carrots and celery like the zucchini in a blender as well?

    • HomesteadSurvival says

      That’s a good question. If you cook the carrots until soft then they shouldn’t be too difficult for your blender. With celery, however, I worry a little bit about how sharp your blender’s blades are to tackle with the “strings.” You know your blender best. If your blender’s blades are decent, I think it’s worth a go. 🙂

    • My husband just brought home the ingredients so I can make this soup again. I’ve made this soup with and without a juicer and it didn’t work without a juicer. The carrots and celery are the broth for the soup so they are too thick when they are blended. You’ll also want a high speed blender for the cooked veggies and cashews so you get a smooth consistency. We let each person season to their taste adding a combo of curry, cumin, & chili powder.

      I know how frustrating it is when you want to start trying new recipes and don’t have the appliances needed. It’s expensive getting set-up to prepare whole foods but this soup is worth it!
