Soup of the Week: Jade Curry

Spicy and flavorful, this versatile soup can be made with different vegetables, depending on what’s available. I originally made it with green papaya, which grows right in our backyard in Hawaii. When I venture into colder climates, however, green papaya is not always a common find, so I’ll use potato or even Jerusalem artichoke instead. Enzyme-rich green papaya is simply unripe regular papaya. It has a mild and pleasant peppery flavor. If you find it in Chinatown, give it a try.

Juice of the Week: Evening Calm

In every culture, people like to end a hectic day with a soothing drink. Here’s one that actually works and is good for you too. Mellow and delicious, this cooling juice helps calm your nervous system and curb your appetite.

Benefits

Naturally relaxing because of their color, green drinks are especially nice in the evening. This magnesium-rich potion calms your nerves and helps alleviate headaches and nausea. It also possesses silicon, sulfur, and potassium, which help slow the aging process. Silicon is necessary for calcium metabolism and helps strengthen arteries, joints, and connective tissues.

Soup of the Week: Easy Indian Curry

It’s hard to go wrong with this simply and sumptuous curry. Just be discriminating in choosing your curry powder. Some curry powders from the Far East use too much fenugreek, making a dish bitter and even unpleasant. The perfect curry has balanced flavors and isn’t dominated by any one, least of all the bitter flavor. Many curry powders from India and Pakistan are safe bets, especially a nice madras.
