Mushroom Immune Support Soup
(Original Recipe Courtesy of Dr. Maoshing Ni, www.taoofwellness.com)
I hope you like this simple Mushroom Immune Support Soup as much as me and my clients do.
This original recipe shared by Tao of Wellness is made by making a broth of cabbage, carrots, fresh ginger, onion, oregano, shiitake mushrooms (if dried, they must be soaked first), maitake, lion’s mane, turkey tail, any kind of seaweed, any type of summer squash(yellow crooked neck/zucchini/patty pan) in water or your favorite stock.
Combine and simmer on low heat for one hour.
My additions to Dr. Maoshing Ni’s recipe are:
1 tsp of Eden Mirin for a hint of natural sweetness. I prefer nappa cabbage, savoy or bok choy to regular green cabbage for a more delicate flavor and use shallots instead of onion. Sometimes I combine one or more of the three cabbages to add different flavors and textures. For those that like a heartier soup, use regular green cabbage.
I also use coconut water as my soup base and may add in shredded cooked chicken and cooked brown rice if I want a main course “soup” meal.
This soup is not only delicious, but provides many health benefits. Cabbage can increase your body’s ability to fight infection, ginger supports healthy digestion, and seaweed cleanses the body.
I include this soup regularly as part of my Fall/Winter diet to build a strong and healthy immune system.
I highly recommend subscribing to The Tao Of Wellness newsletter for high quality TCM based natural healing information.
If you live near Los Angeles, be sure to schedule an apt. with either Dr. Daoshing Ni or Dr. Maoshing Ni for their excellent personalized herbal tea prescriptions and impeccable acupuncture.
