  • 1 Small yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 Cloves garlic, chopped
  • 4 Cups homemade bone broth
  • 1 Tsp. ground turmeric-or more
  • 8 Fresh shitake mushrooms, stems removed, sliced
  • 1 1/2 Cups julienned fresh kale
  • 1 Cup cubed butternut squash
  • 2 Tbs. grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 Tsp. Cayenne pepper
  • 6 thin slices astragalus root (optional)
  • Juice of 1 fresh lemon
  • 1 Tsp. miso paste

(avoid miso if intolerant to soy or afflicted with auto-immune disease and/or leaky gut)

In a large pot over medium-high heat, cook onion and garlic in 2 tablespoons of broth stirring occassionally until tender and and most of the broth has evaporated. Add a splash of broth if needed to keep onion from sticking, then stir in turmeric and mushrooms and cook until mushrooms are tender (2-4 minutes).

Stir in remaining broth, kale, squash, ginger, cayenne and astragalus. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until squash is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly then add lemon jiice and miso paste (adding miso when still very hot will diminish its probiotic benefits.) Cover and let sit 5 minutes before serving.

Serve with a tbs. of coconut oil in each bowl and enjoy one of the most immune boosting soup recipes.
