A recipe to nourish the Spirit
This Kitchari is nourishing to body and spirit, grounding, sustaining, and easy to make.
Things that are helpful to have: A crockpot
First, make the broth:
- Place a handful of polypore mushrooms; Oregon Reishi, Artist’s Conk, Red Belted Polypore, Turkey tail.. (slices or whole) into Crockpot and fill with water (If you do not have a crockpot, simmer on your stove top on low heat)
- Add chopped onion and garlic
- Put the lid on and place on low
- Let simmer for at least 2 hours (it is easiest to throw it in the pot and let simmer over night or throughout the day)
- Strain out Mushrooms from the broth (these mushrooms are too woody to eat)
- If you are into Bone Broth, bones make a delicious and nutritious addition
41/2 Cups Polypore Broth
1 Cup rice (any kind, I prefer brown, but do what you like)
1 Cup Mung Beans, uncooked
1 Sweet potato, chopped
1 C Nettles, dried or fresh
1.5 Tbs Ghee or Coconut oil
1 Tbs Garam Masala
- Mix all ingredients in a crockpot or on stovetop
- Bring to a boil, and then down to a simmer for about 2 hours. If you use a crockpot, you can have it on low throughout the day and come home to a nice hot meal.
