The Magic of Mushrooms
Neither plant nor animal, the mysterious fungus is a class, or kingdom, of its own, and has fascinated cultures around the world for centuries.
Mushrooms (such as portobello, shitake and porcini) can provide us with unique immune system support. In a remarkable way, particular phytonutrients found only in mushrooms actually change the way your white blood cells (the basis of our immune system) go about their business. In fact, the list of immune-impacting properties of mushrooms are both unusual and lengthy – but trust me – they are a true immune superfood!
Mushrooms are also low in fat, a good source of fibre, selenium, copper, vitamin D and B vitamins. They are also recognised in present day science as having anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antibiotic and anti-tumour properties. In fact, nutritional science is now just tapping the surface of their ability to combat one of the biggest killers – cancer). Behold the mighty mushroom!
This soup is so delicious, so easy to make and so god dam comforting. You simply must give it a go!
