Eat this for: A hydrating skin and soul.
Time & Place: The craving for this soup always comes in around 4 pm and I love eating it as a late lunch, midday snack, or pre-dinner addition. To say that this is THE MOST nourishing thing on the planet is an understatement. But the beauty of this recipe is that while being so nourishing and hydrating, it doesn’t give you that heavy meal feeling where you need to find a couch and get horizontal.
Skin Food: There are so many anti-inflammatory agents in here that help clear up your skin. Also, shitake is one of the most underrated mushrooms to support full body wellbeing. The combination of the ginger (detoxifying), turmeric (anti-inflammatory), and a blend of mushrooms (glow enhancing) is a triple threat. Also, adding black pepper (which contains a compound called pipeline) makes the curcumin in turmeric more bioavailable, supporting its ability to produce collagen.
Skincare mantra: “Less is more.”
CLEANSING MUSHROOM SOUP
- organic carrots
- reconstituted dried, porcini shiitake mushrooms
- fresh shiitake mushrooms
- oyster mushrooms
- meyer lemon juice and zest
- 1/2 to 1 cup mushroom powder
- salt and pepper to taste
Mince ginger and garlic. Dice onion, celery, carrots, leeks, and mushrooms. Add water, fresh turmeric, lemon, reconstituted mushrooms, and salt and pepper to taste and simmer overnight. I’ve never actually written down measurements. To me, it’s usually super personal on how deep you want to go with each flavor. You really can’t mess this up!
