Gather

  • 5 oz Shiitake Mushrooms – substitute: Reishi or Chaga mushrooms | don’t like mushrooms? don’t worry you can take them out early in the cooking process. You’re gonna want those immune supporting & anti-inflammatory properties in your soup.
  • 2 Sweet Potatoes
  • 12 oz Frozen Kale – substitute: chopped, fresh kale
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • 2 Tbsp minced Garlic – substitute: minced, fresh garlic
  • 1/4 cup Ginger Root (fresh, raw, about 6-8 inches of ginger root)
  • 2 Tbps Tumeric Root (fresh, raw, about 3-4 inches of tumeric root)
  • 2 Tsp Black Pepper
  • 3-4 cups Vegetable Broth – substitute: water and 1-1.5 vegetable bullion cube | for a non-vegan recipe, you can use a low sodium chicken broth instead.
  • Optional spices: garlic salt (to taste), garlic pepper (to taste), or cayenne (to taste)

For a creamier soup, mix in some non-dairy milk at the end of the cooking process. I recommend almond milk or oat milk for this recipe.

Prepare

  • rinse the mushrooms, sweet potatoes, ginger root & tumeric root.
    • if desired, you can peel the skin of the sweet potatoes, ginger and tumeric
  • chop onion, sweet potato, ginger root & tumeric root
    • (optional: mince garlic if using fresh garlic)
  • take frozen kale out of the freezer

Cook

  1. Boil ginger, garlic, onion and tumeric. [use enough water to cover it]. boil for a few minutes, then reduce heat and allow it to simmer for about 5 minutes. — If you don’t like mushrooms, boil them in this step instead
  2. Remove ginger, and tumeric. — remove mushrooms, if desired.
  3. Add sweet potatoes, mushrooms, and kale. Cover with vegetable broth (or water + bullion cube). Add black pepper and and other optional spices.
  4. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 15-20 minutes. (full disclosure: I didn’t actually time this part).
  5. Serve & Enjoy
