Merry Mary – Juice recipe from Beat Cancer Kitchen

This recipe is from my new book BEAT CANCER KITCHEN: Deliciously Simple Plant-Based Anticancer Recipes, in stores November 16th and available for pre-order now! (Links below the recipe)

Merry Mary
Move over Bloody Mary, our Merry Mary is a savory tomato-based juice packed with anticancer, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory veggies: celery, peppers, cucumber, carrots, and garlic.

Tomatoes contain a unique anticancer compound called lycopene. And high intake of tomatoes has been associated with a lower risk of multiple types of cancer including prostate, lung, stomach, colorectal, breast, and more. This is a deliciously fun and festive juice. Enjoy!

-1 pound tomatoes
-1 celery stalk, plus small inner ribs for garnish
-1 large cucumber
-1 medium green bell pepper
-4 medium carrots
-1 garlic clove
-1 medium jalapeño pepper (optional), plus more for garnish
-2 medium limes, cut into wedges
-Black pepper, to taste
-4 to 6 pieces pickled okra 4 to 6 radishes
-4 to 6 olives
-4 to 6 grape tomatoes

1. Feed the tomatoes, celery, cucumber, bell pepper, carrots, garlic, and jalapeño, if using, into your juicer.

2. Transfer the juice to a 2-quart pitcher and stir together. Divide the juice among 4 to 6 glasses with ice if you like it cold.

3. Garnish with a lime wedge, a sprinkle of black pepper, a rib of celery, a piece of pickled okra, a radish, an olive, and a grape tomato.
