Arame, which is a great source of calcium, magnesium, and other minerals, will create strong vitality. The dried daikon and shiitake travel deep into the body to aid in breaking down stagnant and accumulated fat in and around various organs. Ginger improves circulation, making for smooth organ function and great strength.
- Yield: 3 to 4 Servings
- 6 to 8 thin slices fresh ginger, finely julienned
- ½ cup dried arame, rinsed several times and soaked in water for 5 minutes, until tender
- ½ cup dried daikon, rinsed and soaked in water for 5 minutes, until tender
- 2 dried shiitake mushrooms, soaked in water for 10 to 15 minutes, until tender, stemmed and thinly sliced
- Organic soy sauce, to taste
- 2 to 3 sprigs fresh flatleaf parsley, coarsely chopped, for serving
- Layer the ginger, arame, daikon, and shiitakes in a small saucepan. Add enough spring or filtered water to cover the ingredients halfway. Add a splash of soy sauce, then cover and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until all liquid has been absorbed, 35 to 40 minutes.
- Season lightly with soy sauce and simmer for 5 minutes more. Uncover and raise the heat to medium to allow any remaining liquid to cook away. Stir gently and transfer to a serving bowl. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve warm.
