ASTRAGALUS & CODONOPSIS SOUP FOR LATE SUMMER

November 10, 2014

14 cups water or vegetable or meat stock

28 cloves garlic, peeled and roughly chopped

1 oz Astragalus Root (comes either in little pieces or long slices which easily can be broken up with

your fingers)

1 oz Codonopsis Root

 

Place all of the above in large pot and simmer covered for 2 hours. Recipe can also be

halved and made in a medium size pot.

Strain or take out herbs and garlic with slotted spoon.

 

Add any amount, chopped any size desired of the following vegetables:

Onion

Carrot

Cabbage

Green beans

Shitake mushrooms – If fresh are not available, dried mushrooms can be used and should be soaked

in water for 15 minutes or longer before chopping. Save soaking water for future stock.

Simmer as long as desired. Place tougher vegetable pieces in first, simmer and then

add more delicate vegetables later so all are tender but not overcooked.

 

Add the following seasonings as desired:

Sea salt

Tamari or soy sauce

Sesame oil (cold pressed and unrefined)

*Roasted Sesame Oil – add only small amount, try only ½ teaspoon first because the flavor is quite

strong. *Is dark brown color, usually sold in small bottles in Asian food section.

 

Add cooked whole grain at last minute. If grain sits in soup for longer periods of time

the grain can soak up all or most of the broth. Grain suggestions include: rice, barley,

millet, quinoa, etc.

 

Meat can be cooked with the broth or can be added later.
