Summer 4-Day Menu Plan

© Elson M. Haas MD

Note: This is a light and low-fat crepe; the bubbly water takes the place of egg to make the crepes fluffy.


1 cup apple juice

3 cups seasonal fruit such as peaches, berries, apricots

pinch of salt

2 Tablespoons kuzu or arrowroot powder, diluted in 3 Tablespoons cold water or juice

Bring juice, fruit,and salt to a boil and simmer for a few minutes. Add dissolved kuzu and stir until mixture thickens.

Scrambled Tofu ?Serves 6
(lighter than eggs, and low-fat)

3 8-ounce tofu cakes

1 Tablespoon light miso

1 Tablespoon sesame oil

1 cup mushrooms, sliced

1/4 cup black olives, minced

2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped

1 Tablespoon turmeric

1/4 teaspoon cayenne, or to taste

sea salt to taste; soy sauce is also fine

1/4 cup fresh parsley or cilantro, minced

2 green onions, sliced thinly

Place tofu in a bowl with miso and mash together thoroughly. Heat oil in skillet and sauté mushrooms for a few minutes. Add tofu mixture, olives, tomatoes, and turmeric. Stir together well, cover and simmer over low flame for 5 minutes. Season to taste with cayenne and sea salt or soy sauce, add parsley or cilantro and green onions, and serve. Add or substitute onion and garlic, carrot (diced or grated), and celery slices for variety. To vary flavor try nutritional yeast, thyme or rosemary, and dill. For spicy, egg-colored scrambled tofu, substitute 1/2 teaspoon curry powder for the turmeric.

Chicken ?en Chemise? ?Serves 6

6 chicken breasts

6 pieces parchment paper

1 stalk celery, minced

1 onion, minced

1 teaspoon thyme

1 teaspoon marjoram

1 teaspoon herb salt

freshly ground black pepper or cayenne pepper

6 Tablespoons lemon juice

6 Tablespoons dry white wine (optional)

parsley to garnish

Preheat oven to 375°.

Season chicken breasts on both sides and place on paper squares. Place celery, onion and herbs on the chicken, add lemon juice, pepper, and wine, and fold ends of paper upward to form a little package. Bake for 30 minutes. Before serving garnish with fresh parsley.
