Warm, comforting, and satisfying, this salad brings together some of the most healing cooked vegetables—asparagus, brussels sprouts, and potatoes—with fresh leafy greens, herbs, onion, and a simple dressing. The result is a simple and delicious meal. This recipe comes from the Revised and Expanded Edition of Medical Medium.
Some of the phytochemicals found in asparagus are toxin inhibitors (a fact as yet unknown to science). This means that once toxins such as DDT, other pesticides, and heavy metals have been driven out of the organs, these specialized phytochemicals stay behind and repel new toxins from taking up residence there.
Brussels sprouts are wonderful for the joints, plus they help lower bad cholesterol, increase good cholesterol, purify the liver and other dense sponge organs such as the spleen, and purify the blood.
Potatoes help build up glycogen storage, the very resource that protects us against blood sugar problems, weight gain, fatty liver, and dirty blood syndrome.
Arugula causes a gentle purging effect inside the liver, with undiscovered phytochemical compounds that allow the liver to decide the severity of the cleanse and what toxins it safely wants to release.
Arugula, Potato, and Asparagus Salad
To prepare the potatoes, add 3 inches of water to a medium-sized pot, bring it to a boil, and add a steaming basket. Place the potatoes in the basket, cover, and steam for 15 to 20 minutes, until the potatoes are very tender.
To prepare the brussels sprouts, steam for 10 minutes, until tender.
To prepare the asparagus, steam for 5 minutes, until tender.
To streamline the above process, feel free to steam the potatoes, brussels sprouts, and asparagus together in one large basket. So that nothing gets overcooked, start by steaming the potatoes, then 5 to 10 minutes later, add the brussels sprouts. After another 5 minutes, add the asparagus. Steam for an additional 5 minutes, or until all contents of the steamer basket are tender.
Remove the potatoes, brussels sprouts, and asparagus and place them in a large bowl. Let them cool for 10 minutes, and then add the onion, parsley, basil, dried thyme, lemon juice, maple syrup, arugula, and lettuce. Toss until evenly mixed. Serve immediately.
