Healthy Cooking with Kamalaya : Carrot Shitake Soup

Serves 2

We all know that carrots are good for our eyesight, but that’s just one of many benefits. The beta-carotene that helps our eyesight is an anti-oxidant that is useful in the prevention of conditions such as cancer and heart disease. Shitake mushrooms are a great immune system tonic.

Carrot, chopped finely, 300 g
Shitake mushrooms, sliced, 80 g
Pumpkin seed milk *, 150 ml
Vegetable stock, 500 ml
Shallot, chopped finely, 2 medium size
Coconut oil virgin, 5 ml
Oregano (fresh), Garnish
Leek, chopped finely, 30 g
Celery, chopped finely, 30 g
Salt, Pinch
Pepper, To taste

* You can find the recipe for Pumpkin Seed milk here.

Heat up the saucepan to a medium heat with a small amount of vegetable stock and sauté the carrot for 10 seconds. Add the remainder of the stock and bring to a simmer. Next, add the leek, celery, shitake mushrooms and shallot. Add the pumpkin seed milk and simmer for 10 minutes.

Remove the soup from the heat, cool slightly and then blend for about 20 seconds (or until smooth and creamy), then pour back into saucepan to reheat. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve the soup into bowls, drizzle the coconut oil on top and garnish with fresh oregano leaves
