Shiitake & Leek Broth

This recipe was originally from Eve's book, 'Be Good to your gut', and true to the title, it incorporates so many gut-friendly foods: 'Everything from prebiotic shiitake mushrooms through to fermented miso and organic chicken bone broth, with its healing amino acids. Shiitake mushrooms may also have a positive impact on managing our stress hormone levels to leave us less wired. The other key ingredient here is arame, a type of seaweed that helps support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut while crowding out the less friendly guys. Seaweeds are also high in protective antioxidant compounds as well as having a natural anti-inflammatory effect. This is a recipe that takes no time to prepare but gives you and your gut back tenfold.'

80g shiitake mushrooms, sliced

2 tsp fresh ginger, finely chopped

6 thin slices fresh red chilli, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed

4 tbsp coconut aminos or tamari

2 pouches (648g) Borough Broth Co. Free-Range Organic Chicken Bone Broth


To serve:

sesame oil to drizzle

  1. Soak the arame in cold water for 10-15 minutes, then drain.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a large saucepan and stir-fry the leeks for 2 minutes to soften slightly. Then add the mushrooms, ginger, chilli, garlic, and stir-fry for a further minute.
