The Chew: Fix It With Food
Daphne Oz knows a thing or two about how to Fix It With Food. She is a doctor’s daughter, after all. She shared her Spicy Noodle Soup Recipe, which she promised is a quick fix for immune boosting, congestion, and other winter symptoms.
Ginger makes a great broth and is anti-inflammatory, fighting those unwanted winter aches. The chilis provide some warming spice and also fires up your metabolism.
The Chew: Shiitake Mushroom Broth Flavor
Shiitake Mushrooms are high in Vitamin D, which is good to keep your body fueled. Dried mushrooms are used here to get a stronger, more concentrated mushroom flavor to tickle your senses with Umami flavor. (The broth will taste like veal or beef, even though it only uses mushrooms as a flavoring agent!)
Fresh spinach provides the perfect finishing touch, rich in Iron and Vitamin K, which is good for your bones. Could there be any more nutrients in this dish?
