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.

Veggie Broth

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.
