Veggie Dishes, the Great Physician's Way

By Jordan S. Rubin
Certified Nutrition Specialist – Wondering how to get more veggies into your diet? Try these two healthy recipes from The Great Physician's RX for Health & Wellness.

Blue Corn Posole

Yield: 1 quart

1 1/2 oz. coconut oil
1/8 quart diced yellow onions
1/8 cup garlic and oil
1 tablespoon oregano leaf
1/2 tablespoon sea salt
1/3 gallon of hot water
1 pint blue corn
1/4 tablespoon Herbamare*

In a pot, sauté coconut oil, onions, garlic, oregano, and sea salt on low heat until the onions sweat. Add blue corn. Bring to a boil, then reduce to medium simmer. Stir periodically until the posole is tender, approximately 30 minutes. Water may be added if simmering is too long and is boiling away. Drain off excess water in a colander. Re-season again for correcting flavoring. Let cool, then refrigerate.

Italian Zucchini

Yield: 1 quart

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red onion
1/4 cup oregano
1 teaspoon garlic in oil
pinch of Herbamare*
1 pint chopped zucchini

In a hot braising pan, heat oil. Stir in onions, garlic, and oregano. Then sauté the veggies for 3 minutes. Add in zucchini and Herbamare and simmer to sweat the zucchini. Pull off and cool immediately. Do not overcook the veggies. Allow to cool and refrigerate.

At 19, a very sick Jordan S. Rubin was suffering from what doctors termed an "incurable" digestive disease. When conventional and alternative medical therapies failed to treat his serious condition, Rubin looked to the Bible for answers. Studying and applying Scripture was the key to Rubin's renewed health and vigor and the impetus for his revolutionary dietary plan, The Great Physician's RX for Health & Wellness. Rubin has earned a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine from Peoples University of the Americas School of Natural Medicine, and a Ph.D. in Nutrition and Natural Therapies from the Academy of Natural Therapies. He is also a certified nutritional consultant, a certified personal fitness instructor, a certified nutrition specialist, and a member of the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
