It started with a sneeze. Pretty soon, my body was aching and my nose running. Ugh. It’s so uncomfortable to have a cold or flu … or be sick in any way.

This delicious Mushroom Kale and Tofu Soup really helped. I dubbed it Medicine Soup. It’s comforting, filling, and healthy. It cleared my sinuses just a bit and made me feel cozy and cared for. 

Here’s the  Medicine Soup video … 

Get a big pan or pot and begin by sauteeing some onions, shallots, carrots, and mushrooms. I used portabellas here, but use what you have or like. The onions open the sinuses and the mushrooms strengthen the immune system.

Onions Shallots and Carrots Oh My

I started by using water to saute these. I did add a bit of oil later, but you can do either one … a few tablespoons of water or oil.

Then I added kale. Kale is one of the healthiest foods on the planet. It’s commonly found at nearly any grocery but is a true superfood. It has tons of Vitamin K, as well as calcium, and antioxidants galore. 

Tofu for Protein

Next, tofu. Tofu is quite high in protein which helps you stay strong every day but is even more important if you’re sick.

Continue sauteing everything. This is where I added a bit of oil to keep the tofu from sticking, but with a little patience, water would work just fine here.

Once everything was nice and browned and tender, I added just a splash of red wine for a little depth of flavor. This is optional.

Add some broth to cover and simmer for just a bit. Serve hot.

  1. I think I need this…right now, actually. Thank you so much for posting it! On a past note, from a conversation long ago, I am relieved to say that I finally found an amazing tiny travel (USB charging) blender that has me back to making raw/vegan food with my own hands. I forgot just how much I had used my BlendTec (before I sold everything I owned) to make all kinds of pure plant-based food. I didn’t know I could even find a perfect travel alternative (my other smaller blenders were just too big, still, and not good enough for travel). We’re back to smoothies, dips, spreads, and soups already. I am so grateful. And grateful you are still here, doing what you do so well! XO
