The most protective vegetables known to cancer research are all in this delicious and easy to make soup. For the canned tomatoes I use Muir Glen Diced Tomatoes / no salt added. There’s not much juice in the can so I do not drain it. - Jenny Jones

    I would suggest using tomatoes from a glass jar rather than a can. In the case of a can, even if it’s “non-BPA” you don’t know if the BPA substitute may be declared toxic later.

    Jovial has organic crushed and chopped tomatoes in jars and Bionatura has organic tomato paste in jars.

    I made this for my friend who is in treatment and she says it saved her life during that first round of chemo. She had every side effect and could barely eat or drink anything due to a horrible infection in her mouth/tongue/throat. She is much better now. I blended it smooth and she could get it down. I have added it to my lunch routine as well – very tasty!

    Made this for lunch…delicious! I used my immersion blender to purée it, for a thick, chunky soup. Thank you for the recipe!

    Hello Jenny, My father has a cancerous “mass” at the bottom of his Esophagus. They had to open the esophagus with a stent. So he needs to avoid any stringy or chunky foods. Since he is a picky (understatement ) eater, this has doubled our trouble trying to give him a healthy diet. The doctors want him to eat tons of protein and have a Low sodium intake. He needs to gain weight. Can you recommend a few soup recipes that will keep him healthy and add some much needed weight to his body. I thank you in advance. “One worried Son”

      It seems to me that almost any pureed soup with be good for him. Any vegetable soup with beans for protein could be pureed and when you make your own homemade soup, it’s easy to control the sodium.

    Yuk I’m not a vegetable lover so I know I wouldn’t eat this. But it does look appealing

      carol T. – Hopefully, in the ten months since your post – you have learned to like vegetables.

      The only people I know that didn’t like vegetables over coked them and/or didn’t season them.

        Very true! My husband and I love our vegetables; in fact our whole family does, even our grandchildren. They are so healthy and tasty; and as you said, they are better when seasoned right and definitely NOT overcooked. This soup sounds wonderful, by the way.

    Saute:
    … chopped onions in butter
    … 1 crushed garlic clove
    add:
    … 1 tbsp chopped parsley or parsley flakes
    … 1 tbsp paprika (this gives colour to liquid)
    … immediately stir/mix in carrots coins
    … 1/2 pot cold water
    … salt/pepper
    Bring to boil, then reduce heat-cook until carrots almost tender (30 + min)
    … then add:
    … cubed potatoes (white or sweet potatoes ) (or both)
    … 1 can peas (add juice too) (gives soup good flavour)
    … any other veggies you have on hand (cauliflower, thinly sliced cabbage, frozen peas) add broccoli last)

      what a strange comment for a recipe that Jenny is sharing with her followers. Takes all kinds, I guess. Start your own blog.

    I love your approach and how you share your delicious recipes Jenny, and have shared you to many of my friends. I try to make this kind of soup weekly. I don’t even saute the onions and garlic, just throw it all in raw. If I have on hand, I also add a turnip, celery, green beans, zucchini, sm seeded Jalapeno, and even some spinach at the end. I personally don’t do well with tomatoes, so I leave them out of mine. So yummy, easy and super good for you.
