Detoxifying Winter Root Broth: Burdock, Ginger + Dulse

RecipesWild CoyoteaComment

I don't want to make any ridiculous claims, like, "This broth will save your life!" but that's kinda how I feel about it. Rich in minerals, great for digestion, anti-inflammatory, adaptogenic, it's great on its own or as a base for soup.  Use the broth instead of water to make rice, it provides a very tasty base. Let me know how it works for you. 

Sometimes I will give exact amounts for ingredients- the traditional way to write a recipe. This broth is totally up for intuitive interpretation. If you really like garlic, add a whole head. Or a few cloves. I made 3 quarts of broth with the ingredients pictured above.  Get creative. 

Ingredients:

Garlic + coconut oil

Sautee chopped garlic in a few tablespoons of coconut oil. 

ADD WATER

Add a handful-ish of dulse (nori, kombu, or any other seaweed is great too)

Reishi - I got dried reishi from Rosemary's Garden in Sebastopol. Check your local health food store or the internet.

Turmeric

Ginger

Horseradish

Burdock

Chop the turmeric, ginger, horseradish and burdock and throw it in!

Mushrooms - I used a brown few handfuls of brown mushrooms, but any kind will do.

Simmer for hours!

The longer you simmer, the spicier, richer, and more bitter the broth will become. This is MEDICINE! 

Add Himalayan Salt, Braggs Aminos, or tamari for savory flavor.

Sprinkle Cayenne + Black Pepper for more spice.

 

To make a nutritious soup:

Add kale or arugula, an egg or two, nutritional yeast, go wild!

I hope you enjoy making this broth! Let me know if you have any special additions to this winter wonder broth :)

Keep Cozy!
