Immune Boosting Broth

With cold and flu season in full swing I wanted to re-post my go-to Immune Boosting Broth. So yum and warming and filled with nutrients to give your immune system what it needs to fight off the worst winter can throw at us. I paired my Broth lunch with a salad of arugula (gotta love cruciferous veggies!) and fermented carrots. Nothing better than fermented foods for gut health, and thus, immune health (70% of the immune system resides in the gut!) ....enjoy!!

Immune Boosting Broth

Prep time: 45 minutes

Add to a large pot:

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil*

1/2 cup yellow onion, coarsely chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 tbsp ginger, minced

Sauté about 5 minutes over medium heat, then add:

3 stalks celery, sliced

3 carrots, sliced

2 cups shiitake mushrooms, stems removed, sliced and cut into large pieces

Sauté 5 minutes, then add;

4 cups bone broth or vegetable broth

½ tbsp turmeric

½ tbsp rosemary

½ tsp cumin

1 tbsp parsley

Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes.

After 15 minutes add:

1 sweet potato, baked or microwaved, skin removed, chopped

1 can garbanzo beans, drained

3-4 leaves kale, stems removed, ripped into pieces

Continue simmering until kale leaves are wilted.

Serve hot. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers.

*Note that extra virgin olive oil should not be heated above medium heat on the stove top. For higher temperatures, use a high heat oil such as expeller pressed canola oil or coconut oil.
