Happy Sunday guys!! Hope your weekend has been lovely!!
My Fabulous friend Tasha, always sends me yummy recipes to test out (and put my spin on).
She tried this one and said it was just ok… so I played around a bit and made it tasty.
It’s perfect for simmering away on a Sunday!
Original recipe in white – additions in PINK!
Shiitake Mushroom & Kale Soup
6 cups water
1 onion, sliced
6 oz shiitake mushrooms, stems removed & reserved, caps sliced (I used dried and included the water I used for soaking for extra flavour!)
1 carrot, peeled & chopped
1 Tbsp herbs such as sage, rosemary, or thyme (omitted)
3 cups chopped hearty greens (kale, collard greens, or turnip greens)
1/2 head green cabbage shredded
a few pieces cauliflower
1/4 tsp salt (I used 1/4 “chicken flavored” bullion cube instead)
(1 package of instant miso added after boiling – this miso included dried tofu)
1 Tbsp seaweed (I’m not sure the kind though!)
In a medium pot, combine water, onion, shiitake, cauliflower, carrot and bullion cube. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 20 mins, remove mushrooms and slice, add back in. Add cabbage, herbs, and greens to the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer for 5 mins. Add miso and serve steaming!
This soup was awesome, filling and oh so healthy!! MMM Thanks Tash for the recipe
Another HUGE thank you to all my facebook fans (and ALL my other readers)!! I am SO close to 400 on facebook, which is insanity!
When I started this blog, I wasn’t even sure that anyone would read, so I am SO grateful to you all!! Thank you thank you, I’m so honoured.
I think once I hit 400, I am going to do a giveaway! So stay tuned for details!
