Dr. Pedre’s Super-Immunity Soup

Try this super-immunity soup to help boost your immune system, especially when you’re feeling like you may be coming down with a cold.

Ingredients:

1 yellow onion
2 large organic carrots
2 stalks of organic celery

1 head of kale

30g dried astragalus root

1-2 tbsp chopped ginger

10 garlic cloves

1 bunch of cilantro

¼ cup olive oil

Sea salt

Ground black pepper

Cooking Instructions:

Wash and cut the vegetables. You may sauté the vegetables in a little sesame or olive oil, for extra browning and flavor.  Wash mushrooms and astragalus root and place them into a medium saucepan.   Add the rest of the vegetables.  Add cold water and bring to a boil.   Lower the heat, and cook uncovered for 40 minutes, making sure to add water if it runs too low.   Add sea salt and black pepper to taste.
