Greens and Shrooms

Greens and Shrooms

This recipe has an Asian flare. It takes no time at all to make and it’s super healthy. The kale and broccoli are two foods that helps aid in cancer prevention. The shiitake mushrooms can be great to build the immune system. This is one of my favorite dishes! All organic ingredients used here.

one bunch of kale chopped (green, black, purple or lanciato kale will do)

a crown or two of broccoli chopped

a handful of shiitake mushrooms sliced

one onion chopped

a few sprigs of green onion finely sliced

a couple of squirts of tamari sauce

a spoon or two of extra virgin olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

In a medium fry pan add oil, onion and musrooms. Saute on medium-low heat until cooked, stirring frquently. Meanwhile in a steamer, steam the kale and broccoli under tender but not overcooked. It should have a bright, vibrant green color. When the greens are done, add to the pan of mushrooms and toss. Add the tamari sauce and serve hot.

Tip: garnish with sesame seeds for a complete look

Soulful Spinach Soup

Soulful Spinach Soup

This soup has satisfied many people that I have made this soup for. Even when they thought they wouldn’t like it! Don’t be put off by the green color, this soup is super nourishing. I use all organic ingredients for the soup.

1 head of spinach copped

2-4 cloves chopped

1 onion diced

2 large potatoes cubed

1/2 a head of cauliflower chopped

salt and pepper to taste

a couple of dashes of chipotle spice (this is the secret ingredient!)

a spoon of olive oil (or ghee or butter)

In a large soup pot add oil, onion and garlic. Saute on medium heat for 3-5 min. Add potatoes, cauliflower and spices. Fry for another few minutes while stirring constantly. Add enough water to the pot to cover the mixture plus a bit extra.  Be careful to not add too much water. Bring to a boil, then simmer 20 min. Add in spinach and simmer another 10 min or so. Let soup cool and puree in small batches in the blender until smooth. Reheat soup and serve. If it needs a bit more spice, add a little more chipotle pepper spice.

Tip: This soup goes well with fresh warm sourdough bread!
