Healing Spring Soup Discovered

via Recipe Weekend: Healing Spring Soup Discovered.

Healing Spring Soup Ingredients

  • 2 Tlbs olive oil
  • 1 medium onion
  • 4-5 cloves garlic
  • 10-12 sliced and stemed shitake mushrooms (Jennifer’s great addition, reconstitute dried mushrooms in warm water first)
  • 1 Tlbs or about 1 inch of grated ginger
  • salt to taste
  • 6 cups chicken or veggie broth (see Jennifer’s homemade veggie broth ingredients mentioned above)
  • 1 bunch of spinach (or use any combination of greens you have on hand, swiss chard is still growing in the garden into the early summer)
  • fresh squeezed lemon juice to taste (about 1-2 lemons)

Sautee onion in the olive oil on medium to medium-low heat until the onions are soft about 5-10mins. Add garlic and grated ginger. Sautee for 1-2 minutes longer. Add mushrooms and greens. Season with a little sea salt. Add the broth, bring it to a boil, then turn it to a low simmer. Simmer until shitakes are tender, about 5-10 mins. Take off of the heat and add the fresh lemon juice.
