Red Cabbage, Romaine, Mushroom Salad

By: Michael Lam, MD, MPH; Dorine Lam, RDN, MS, MPH

Rainbow colors of raw vegetables provide you with a host of phytochemicals that can help strengthen your body's immune system.



10 button mushroom – halve, then slice
2 cups organic red cabbage – shred coarsely
1 cup organic parsley - chopped coarsely
2 small heads organic Romaine Lettuce – shred coarsely
1 yellow pepper – thinly sliced


1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup veggie oyster sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 lime juice
2 tbsp olive oil


Toss all ingredients together.
When ready to serve, add 1/2 cup pine nuts.

Note of Caution:

1. For Estrogen Dominance and Hypothyroid - substitute mixed green lettuce for cabbage. You should take the cruciferous vegetables twice a week only.
2. For Allergies or Cancer. You may want to eliminate hoisin sauce and veggie oyster sauce. May use flax seed oil instead of olive oil as a substitute.
3. For Weight Loss – don’t be afraid of the oil. The oil helps maintain the satiety and prevent you from getting hungry until the next meal.

These two recipes can be made ahead of time and stored in glass jars in the fridge. I find it quite tasty to use this soup base to blend with raw vegetables to create a cream soup. It is full of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients for the body. I use soup Base 1 when the raw vegetables are darker in color, such as green and red. Soup base 2 is for light vegetables, such as onions, yellow bell peppers, and potatoes.
