3 C vegetable broth (I heat up old veggie pieces in water that I keep frozen for this purpose and then use the broth).
1 small onion chopped or sliced
1/2-1 diced jalapeno pepper
4 garlic cloves chopped
1-2tsp minced ginger
4 C chopped spinach or kale or your favorite greens
2-4 scallions, chopped
4 dried shitake or portabella mushrooms (Soak in warm water 15 min. prior and use water and mushrooms for broth)
1 C fresh mushrooms (I used shitake)
Dry sauté onions for 3-5 min. and add a little broth if needed to cook without burning
Add the garlic , jalapeño and ginger and continue cooking
Add in the remaining broth
Add the dried mushrooms, the fresh mushrooms and greens
Cook for 10 minutes.
Top soup with chopped scallions and enjoy a hot bowl of goodness!
