AUTUMN HERBAL SOUP – LEMONY DILL FLAVOR with White Fish and Rice

April 13, 2020

8 cups water or vegetable or grain or meat stock

8 – 16 cloves Garlic, peeled, whole

1 inch fresh Ginger, peeled and roughly chopped

1½ teaspoons Black Peppercorn whole (or use Long Pepper, a Chinese herb called Bi Ba)

1/4 oz Astragalus Root (comes either in little pieces or long slices which easily can be broken up with your fingers)

1/4 oz Atractylodes Root (Bai Zhu)

1/4 oz Eleuthro Root (Siberian Ginseng)

1/4 oz Marshmallow Root

Place all of the above in large pot and simmer covered for 2 hours. Strain or take out all herbs with slotted spoon.

3 cups chopped Carrots (~6 carrots) 3 cups chopped Turnips (~3 turnips with skins) 1 teaspoon Sea Salt Simmer in herb broth until desired tenderness.

Using a ladle, spoon out 4 cups of vegetables & broth being careful to dip down to bottom of pot to get good ratio of vegetables to broth. Puree in a blender and add back to soup pot. This blender step can be omitted and a thin soup broth can be enjoyed.

Add ~ 1 lb Whitefish. Can be cooked in advance or cooked with vegetables above.

After all vegetables and fish are cooked add the following: 4 cloves fresh Garlic, finely chopped or minced 2 teaspoons dried Dill Weed 2 1/2 teaspoons Lemon Juice 3/4 teaspoon Lemon Zest Sea Salt adjust amount if necessary 

Black Pepper to taste

No need to cook soup further. Serving soup before garlic cooks is a better flavor.

Add cooked rice at last minute. If grain sits in soup for longer periods of time the grain can soak up all or most of the broth.
