The Ultimate Immune-Boosting Soup
PREP TIME15 mins
Cook Time60 mins
Total Time1 hr 15 mins
T coconut oil
large yellow onion, chopped
garlic cloves, minced
celery stalks, sliced
lb shitake mushrooms
tsp sea salt
tsp black pepper
heads baby bok choy, bottoms chopped off
head kale, chopped
optional: 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
Chop off the bottom of the stem from your mushrooms and discard. Seperate stems from tops and slice tops and remaining stem if necessary, into large pieces. You will only discard the very bottom of the stems, not the full stems as they contain many nutritional benefits!
Heat up coconut oil in a large pot over medium heat.
Add onions and sauté for 5 minutes or until translucent.
Add in garlic and cook for 1 more minute.
Add in celery and mushrooms and sautee for about 10 minutes or until mushrooms have wilted.
Add in spices (including ginger, if using) and water and bring to a boil.
Then let simmer, covered for 1 hour or as long as you want (the longer you leave, the better!)
Add bok choy and kale in the last 10 minutes of cooking to wilt.
Serve warm or store for up to 1 week in the refrigerator.
