We recommend cutting this Anti-Cancer Soup recipe in half. Because it makes enough for a large family, or for several days (Eight 2 cup servings!). So their will be plenty to share with your favorite people. Invite some over, share at work, or plan to freeze some for later!

A high speed blender, like a Blendtec or Vitamix will quickly and easily blend this recipe in batches.

However a “regular” blender will also be able to do the job since the vegetables are so soft. You will just need to chop ingredients prior to cooking (not whole as described), work in even more batches and be careful with hot liquids, letting the steam out as you puree this soup.

  • 1 cup dried beans
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 medium onions about 4 cups
  • 6 medium zucchini about 6 cups
  • 3 leek stalks
  • 2 bunches of kale or collard greens about 6 cups
  • 5 lbs carrots or 4-5 cups of carrot juice about 15 cups
  • 2 bunches of celery or 2 cups of celery juice 10 celery stalks
  • 2 tablespoons no-salt seasoning*
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 package mushrooms chopped (about 6 cups)


  • NOTE: Will blend in 3-4 batches using a 64oz our larger jar.
  • Place the beans and water in a very large stock pot and cook, covered, on the lowest heat possible. Peel onions and place whole into the covered pot. Add whole zucchinis.
  • Cut the bottom roots off leaks and slice them up the side so each leaf can be thoroughly washed. (Leeks have lots of dirt hidden inside.) Throw away the last inch at the green top. Place the entire leek in the pot.
  • Strip the leaves from kale or collard stems. Discard the stems. Chop the leaves and add to the soup pot.
  • To prepare carrot juice, place carrots in 4 cup batches with 1 cup water into blender and secure lid.
  • For Blendtec: Press the WHOLE JUICE button OR blend on MEDIUM for 10 seconds, then HIGH for 40 seconds.
  • For Vitamix: Start on VARIABLE Speed 1. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to VARIABLE Speed 10/HIGH. Blend for 30-45 seconds using the tamper to press the celery into the blades.
  • Strain through a nut milk bag.
  • Repeat the previous instructions to prepare celery juice, with only 1/2 cup water.
  • Add juices to the pot along with the no-salt seasoning*.
  • While the soup is simmering, chop up the mushrooms (if desired). By the time you get to this stage, the onions and zucchini should be soft.
  • Ladle liquid in batches into the blender then add the soft onions, zucchini, leeks, and raw cashews and secure lid.
  • For Blendtec: Press the SAUCES button OR blend on HIGH for 30 seconds.
  • For Vitamix: Select VARIABLE Speed 1. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to VARIABLE Speed 10/HIGH. Blend for 30 seconds or until smooth.
  • Repeat with remaining onions, zucchini, leeks, and rest of liquid.
  • Return the blended mixture to the pot. Add the mushrooms and simmer another 20 minutes.
  • All done! Enjoy!! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments! 🙂 Tag @BlenderBabes & #BlenderBabes

“I made it and then separated in two batches after blending. Due to husband’s allergy to mushrooms I added mushrooms to only one batch. According to me, it tasted better without mushrooms, which surprised me, as I love mushrooms.” and “This recipe seemed to be a long process, because there were several batches to blend. However, it was an easy process because the vegetables were soft. This soup reminded me and my husband of pea soup, the texture and look of it. There was a lot of tweaking with the spices. I thought it was good. My son loved it (and he is a picky, healthy eater) and couldn’t get enough! I have at least a gallon in the freezer!”


Carrots have strong cleansing properties that are effective in detoxifying the liver, thus very effective for acne that is caused by toxins from the blood.

Carrots are also useful for treating uneven skin tones due to pigmentation. The vitamin A and other nutrients contained in carrots efficiently nourish the skin, prevent dry skin and other skin blemishes.

Chewing carrots can help clean your teeth, and is the best way to keep your mouth clean after meals. They act as natural abrasives that help in eliminating the dirt and plaque from the teeth and gums.  They also trigger a lot of saliva, which helps to scrub away stains on your teeth. Minerals in carrots helps to kill germs in the mouth and prevent tooth damage.

    1. Hey Jamie! I just got my instant pot so haven’t tried too many recipes yet. Please keep me posted if you do so I’d love to update the post with that info! Warmly ~ Tarashaun

    2. I’ve made this a couple times in the Instant Pot. Put the beans and 4 cups water in the pot and push the saute button. Take the skins off the onions and add them whole into the pot. Add the zucchini. Add the leeks. I take 2 1/2 lbs of carrots, wash or peel, cut off the ends and add them whole. Juice the other 2 1/2 lbs of carrots and add to the pot – same with the celery 1 stalk wash and cut and add to the pot. 1 stalk juice and add the juice. 1 cup raw cashews. 1 package mushrooms, 2 Tbsp veg base, 6 oz TVP. By this time the water in the pot is steaming. I put on the lid and do a low pressure for 30 minutes and let it release – about another 1/2 hour. Then I take some tongs and pull out (in batches) everything and blend them, leaving the beans in the bottom of the pot. Once blended, add back to the pot and mix. I like the taste, I agree it is similar to pea soup. I freeze 2-3 portions in 2-4 cup containers and heat up as needed. I’ve lost 3 lbs the past week and felt more than full. I recommend reading Eat to Live. I also make a 15 bean soup in the instant pot that turned out good. In the Eat to Live book I have it doesn’t have kale as an ingredient, but does have the cashews, TVP and veg base (vegan buillion).

      1. LOVE THIS! Thanks so much for sharing David I’m always trying to use my Instant Pot for more recipes and I love that you told us exactly what you did! YOU ROCK! 🙂

    1. That sounds like some great additions! Dr. Fuhrman’s trying to keep the salt down by using no salt seasoning, but I’m sure it helped flavor this soup a lot! Thanks for sharing J! 🙂

    1. Great idea cat! Those sound like the perfect healthy additions to Dr. Fuhrman’s Anti-Cancer Soup Recipe! Definitely going to have to try that. 🙂 THANKS FOR SHARING!

  1. Sounds amazing. I would have made this for my mom when she had cancer. ;( Although not a veggie… I would probably add garlic. I love garlic. It’s medicinal and has many health benefits including fighting cancer!

    My hubby would want some shredded chicken before it was served. Just sayin’ .. you can only get so many veggies down that man… 48 years and counting. Probably some pasta the second round. ♥
