Required : Two ounces of lettuce. Two ounces of cabbage. Two ounces of onions. Two ounces of carrots. One teaspoonful of parsley. One ounce of turnip. One sprig of watercress. One pint of water. Salt to taste. One tablespoonful of proteid food.

Cut the vegetables into small pieces, and put them into a stewpan with one pint of water. Let these simmer until quite tender, then strain, pressing all the juices out from the vegetables with a wooden spoon. One tablespoonful of proteid food added to a breakfastcup of this soup makes it more nourishing as well as cleansing.
