Although I’m not a believer in “diets” or extreme cleanses that always seem to be popular come January 1st, sometimes the over-indulging of comfort foods … and wine ?… over the holidays can make you feel a little sluggish! So, it’s always nice to swap the heavy carb-loaded foods for a nice, healthy veggie broth to get yourself … and your guts, back on the right track!!
We wanted this to be similar to a bone broth, flavourful and comforting for those chilly winter days, but without the meat, of course!! The mushrooms, miso and seaweed give this broth a deep, soothing and satisfying flavour that can be used in a variety of ways!! This broth gets it dark colour from the skin of the onions and the shiitake mushrooms.
Serve this with rice noodles and fresh veggies, or add it to your favourite soup. It’s also delicious served straight up if you’re fighting off a cold (like Justin was right before the holidays! He guzzled it up!!). Mushrooms are a rich source of beta glucons, which have prebiotic properties and can improve the growth of healthy bacteria. Win-win! Now why can’t wine do that … LOL!!
