Warming Winter Mushroom Recipes
Winter is upon us and I have been busy creating some winter warming recipes. Here goes....
Warming Shroom Tonic
1 cup of Cashew Milk
1 tsp Reishi extract
1/2 tsp maca powder
1/4 tsp ginger powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp honey
1 tsp coconut oil
Heat all ingredients in a small pot and simmer for 5 mins. Cool slightly. Add to a blender blitz until combined. The foam comes from the coconut oil emulsifying with the other ingredients.
1 brown onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, skin peeled
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 medium carrot, chopped
1 medium potato, chopped
½ cup mixed mushrooms, cut in half
3 bay leaves
1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
8 cups water
Dash of salt and pepper
Place all the ingredients in a large pot on a medium high heat. Bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for at least an hour covered with a lid. Strain thoroughly removing all vegetables and bay leaves.
Can be used to make vegetarian soups, gravies, risottos, stews, stir-fries and more.
