If you haven’t heard about reishi mushrooms yet, you will more and more! This powerful adaptogen may help boost your immune system and could fight cancer. The most delicious way to enjoy the is in my Reishi Mushroom Soup with Carrots and Kale. I’ve fused Japanese and European flavors to give this nutritious soup incredible deliciousness.
I shared my reishi mushroom soup recipe on CBC’s The Goods and host Steven Sabados gave the soup 2 thumbs up (and lots of yums).
Reishi mushrooms are also called ling zhi or woody mushrooms. They’ve been used in traditional Chinese medicine for hundreds of years to help lower blood pressure, improve symptoms of arthritis and to cleanse the liver. Most of the research on reishi mushrooms so far has looked at their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting effects.
