Soups are easy to digest, nourishing and endlessly changing. The trick is to know a few simple base recipes and then learn to vary them to your liking. This is a favorite in our household as a simple starter to a meal or as light meal itself. I also use this recipe as a part of a gentle spring or autumn cleanse, or to treat those who are weak or ill. Use fewer ingredients and keep the recipe simpler if you are fighting illness or have very weakened digestion.
Place stock in large pan and bring to a boil. Stir in sake and tarmari sauce. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Add mushroom and carrots and simmer 2 minutes more.
Ladle soup into small bowls and serve as excellent start for the day. Feel free to vary the recipe by adding in seasonal vegetables like snap peas.
Health benefits: Perfect for recovery from any illness and easy to absorb.
Energetics: Nourishing, warming and tonifying. The chicken stock nourishes the Stomach and Spleen.
