Good Enough to Live (Not Die) For Stir-Fry
Quark and Flax - Dr. Johanna Budwig's Oil-Protein Treatment

Good Enough to Live (Not Die) For Stir-Fry \ Serves 3-4

6-8 large cloves garlic, sliced thinly
1 tablespoon/15 ml olive oil
1 cup/250 ml fresh shiitake, sliced or 1 ounce/30 grams dried
2-4 fresh yellow dock roots
1-2 fresh burdock roots
1-2 fresh dandelion roots
1 pound/ 500 grams tofu cut in cubes
2 cups/500 ml cooked fresh stinging nettles
1/2 cup/125 mI almonds
1 tablespoon/15 ml tamari

Cook garlic briefly in oil at the lowest possible heat. Raise heat a little. Add mushrooms and cook for several minutes, stirring often. Slice roots thinly on the diagonal and add them to the skillet. Cook for five minutes, stirring frequently. Add tofu, nettle leaves, and some of the nettle cooking water. Cover tightly and cook at medium-high heat for five minutes. While it cooks, slice and toast almonds. To serve, pour over soba (buckwheat noodles) or brown rice, sprinkle with tamari, and garnish generously with almonds.

Quark and Flax - Dr. Johanna Budwig's Oil-Protein Treatment

Used to counter fatigue, reduce recurrences, and encourage complete remission of cancer, by itself or in conjunction with other treatments. Also used to prevent radiation- and chemotherapy-induced cancers. Current research shows flax oil particularly effective against cancers of the breast.

100 grams/3.5 ounces quark*
40 grams/1.5 ounces fresh flax oil
25 grams/1 ounce nonfat organic milk

Mix quark and oil, adding only enough milk to blend the mixture. Eat immediately or refrigerate in a dark, tightly closed container.
This recipe makes the minimum amount that needs to be consumed per day, but start with small amounts and increase gradually to counter the tendency of flax oil to loosen the bowels. Discontinue use if you experience severe diarrhea.
The mixture can be left plain or seasoned: Add honey and fruit for a sweet variation, or herbs and garlic for a zesty variation. Eat it alone or use it as a topping for bread, grains, granola, vegetables, or baked potatoes.

* If quark is not sold in your area, you can use nonfat cottage cheese, or make your own quark. It's easy. Line a colander or kitchen sieve with a loosely woven cotton cloth (such as a large handkerchief, a clean piece of old sheeting, or several layers of cheesecloth). Place the cloth-lined colander in a large bowl and pour a quart of nonfat or organic yogurt into it. Cover it loosely with plastic and let sit at room temperature for 12-24 hours. The yogurt will separate into a spreadable cheese (the quark) and a liquid (the whey, which has dripped into the bowl) .Using a rubber spatula, scrape the quark off the cloth, and store it in a glass container in the refrigerator. It will stay fresh for 7-10 days. (I use the whey as the cooking liquid for rice or millet; yum!)
