A meal from THE ANTIDOTE by

“[…] rustic fruit and berry pies. […] A seven-day of diet of nothing but brown rice, vegetables and water will cleanse the liver and the kidneys.”

Bowl of Brown Rice and Vegetables

Cook 2 cups of long-grain brown rice according to package directions (it usually takes about 40 minutes).

In a large skillet, over medium heat, sautée 2 medium onions (chopped finely) in 2 tbsp olive oil until translucent (about 5 minutes). Add the julienned carrots (10 baby carrots cut in long strips). Cover and cook for 4 minutes. Add the mushrooms (1/2 pound fresh shiitake mushrooms, sliced) and cook, covered, for 4 more minutes. Pour everything in a bowl and set aside.

In the same skillet, sautée 1 large zucchini (cut in 4 length-wise and thinly sliced) for 2 minutes, then cover and cook 3 more minutes. Pour in bowl and set aside. Repeat this step but with 2 broccoli heads (thinly sliced) instead.

Place 1 cup of cooked rice in a bowl and top with vegetables. Serve warm and with diced avocado and sauce on the side.

Sauce: ¼ cup yogurt +2 tbsp lemon juice + 1 tbsp sweet chili sauce


Apple-Berry Pie

Fit pastry dough (homemade or store-bought) into one 9-inch pie pan or four 4-inch pie pans.

In a bowl, place 9 apples (peeled, cored, and cubed) + 1 cup raspberries + 1 cup blueberries. Toss with 4 tbsp lemon juice +  ½ cup of sugar. 

Fill the pie shell(s) with the fruit mix. Sprinkle with 1 tbsp orange zest. Cover with the remaining pastry dough. Pierce dough with fork 3-4 times at regular intervals.

Bake in a 375-degreeF-oven until golden brown (about 45 minutes or 30 minutes for smaller pies)
