Immune Boosting Soup

IMG_1199.JPG

Yesterday, I made an adaptation of James Wong's (Grow your own Drugs) recipe, Immune System Booster. He combines echinacea root, goji berries, chicken stock, chicken parts, onions, shiitake mushrooms, ginger root, chilies, and garlic. I went this way:

Simple bone broth (from sheep)
Onions, shallots and scallions
Shiitake and Oyster mushrooms
Fresh garlic and ginger
Goji berries
Echinacea root
Astragalus root
Ashwaganda root
Chilies
Light miso
Fresh ground black pepper

I sautéed gently (never boiling) and let sit and stew with the heat off. 
Voila! It is incredible. You feel it's power with every sip and taste. 

Cooking immune soups and pastes are a passion. Next up? Restorative Nettle Soup.
