Anticancer recipes based on David Servan-Schreiber’s book

Here are meal ideas and recipes, based on the guidelines in the “Anticancer book” and based on my clients’ food in their pantry/fridge and their likes and dislikes. Each dish builds on the previous one — using leftovers.

Green beans w/caramelized onions and shallots

Green beans, filet beans, haricot verts

Green beans have a hard time absorbing flavors b/c of its tight-waxy skin, so, the trick to picking up a flavor is to blanch them or soak them in a salt bath in order to get the tight cellulose walls to open up. This will allow flavors to be absorbed.

Chicken Piccata (Picatta), for 16 servings

The best Chicken Picatta EVER. … the texture, the flavors … hopefully you’ll have a chance to second my opinion.
