  • 1 Tbl Coconut Oil
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 2 Stalks Celery chopped
  • 3 Carrots sliced into 1/4″ rounds
  • 2 Parsnips sliced into 1/4″ rounds
  • Shiitake Mushrooms rehydrated
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 4 C Vegetable Broth I prefer low-sodium
  • 2 Green Tea Bags with Lemon
  • 1 tsp Black Peppercorns
  • 2 small Bay Leaf or 1 large
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic minced
  • 1-1/2 tsp of freshly grated Ginger
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Turmeric
  • Lemon halves optional, grilled
  • Parsley for garnish
  • Eggless Noodles
  • Crackers for serving


  1. To begin, add the vegetable broth, bay leaves, turmeric, ginger and peppercorns to a large stock pot.
  2. Tie the tea bags as I have shown here so they can steep in the liquid.
  3. Bring the liquid to a boil, add the tea bags and simmer for about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Remove the tea bags and strain the liquid to remove the bay leaves and peppercorns.
  5. In a large saute pan, add the coconut oil, onions, celery, carrots and parsnips and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Once tender, remove from the burner and add the garlic, allow the residual heat to cook it.
  7. If you have a grill pan, heat to high and add the lemon halves for just a few minutes until caramelized. This step is optional.
  8. Add lemon halves to the broth and boil for about 10 minutes. Remove the lemons.
  9. While the broth is boiling, rehydrated the shiitake mushrooms in hot water for 10 minutes, drain and rinse.
  10. Prepare the noodles.
  11. Combine the mushrooms, sautéed vegetables and broth.
  12. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with your favorite crackers.
