Nutrition
is at the core of
everything your body
does for you.

From health to sickness,
from energy to lethargy,
from happiness to depression –
the necessary nutrients your cells
receive or do not receive affect
everything about you. If only one cell
in your body is deprived, it slowly affects
the rest of you.

How should you
clean your teeth?
Let me count the ways!
When I was a kid
going to the dentist,
my dentist always told me
I had to brush harder.
What did that mean?
When my family moved to another city,
my new dentist told me totally different
things about brushing my teeth.

My Favorite Paleo Recipes:
Creamy Mushroom Soup

        Alvin H. Danenberg, DDS       November 23, 2015

 

Creamy Mushroom SoupMy recipe for creamy mushroom soup is velvety and filling. Even if you left out the coconut milk or heavy cream, it is still thick and creamy. It also has some kick because of the Jalapeño pepper and red pepper flakes. You could adjust the heat by reducing or increasing these peppers. (Notice: I snuck some important trace nutrients from seaweed into the recipe by incorporating kelp granules.)

 
 
 
 

Creamy Mushroom Soup

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 (8 oz) package Crimini mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, roughly chopped (remove rib if you don’t like spicy food)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Kelp Granules (I use Maine Coast Organic Kelp Granules)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, (adjust to taste or omit)
  • ¼ cup red wine
  • 2 cups bone broth
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk or grass-fed heavy cream
  • Chopped fresh basil for garnish

 

Preparation:

 

  1. Add ghee to a Dutch oven or heavy soup pot over low heat; then add onions, mushrooms, garlic, and jalapeno pepper. Cover and cook until all ingredients are soft (about 15-20 minutes).
  2. Add thyme, kelp granules, bay leaf, and pepper flakes. Stir. After another minute or so, add wine to deglaze the pot.
  3. Cook uncovered for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, then add bone broth and raise heat to boil.
  4. Let mixture simmer for about 10-15 minutes to thicken.
  5. Remove bay leaf
  6. Blend the mixture in a blender (like the Vitamix) or with an immersion stick blender.
  7. Add mixture back to pot, stir in coconut milk or cream, and heat thoroughly on medium heat (do not boil).
  8. Salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Garnish with basil and serve. (This soup is also delicious cold. Try it. You might like it better chilled.)
