Healing Mushroom Miso Soup
My dad credits this soup this soup to helping him survive lung cancer and finally conquering his life long battle with obesity. This healing soup made with shitake, portabella, and maitake mushrooms revived his spirit when he was diagnosed. He remembered how his mother, my Bubbe Mary, cooked for him when he was in a coma after being beaten up by a bunch of bullies in the sixth grade taunting him about his weight. Bubbe said it was the smells from her kitchen that brought him back to life. Bubbe was gone, but when he was sick he remembered Bubbe’s words…“soup is good food,”--eventually turning her beliefs into a famous advertising tag line for Campbell’s Home-Style brand soup.
