In a large saucepan, over medium heat, add the diced onions. Allow to sweat while slicing the mushrooms. About 5-7 minutes.
Move onions to the sides of the saucepan and add mushrooms, allow to cook 5 minutes uncovered.
Stir the onions and mushrooms together. Add fresh thyme and allow to continue to cook, at least 10 minutes.
You will notice a substantial amount of water has come out of the mushrooms, and they are reduced in volume by half.
Add the bay leaf, the salt and the liquid aminos to the mushrooms.
Stir the 1 tbs. of tapioca starch into the organic broth. Add to mushrooms and stir. Add almond milk.
Allow to cook for at least 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste and add freshly ground black pepper to taste.
This soup is amazing the next day as well and can easily be doubled or tripled.To make the soup creamier, you can blend half the soup in a high speed blender (be careful, it’s hot). To thicken the soup even more, you can add a can of drained white beans or boiled potatoes. A mixture of cremini (baby portobello) and white button mushrooms are best. However you can use all cremini or all white button mushrooms if you need to.If you don’t have fresh thyme, you can use 1 teaspoon of dried thyme.Dairy free milks that this works well with include: unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, cashew milk or oat milk.Substitutes for tapioca starch include arrowroot powder or cornstarch.
This homemade moisturizer is an all-purpose miracle worker—as excellent for damaged and dry hands as it is for repairing chapped lips and cracked skin. Rosemary and sage oils, steeped in nourishing coconut oil and cocoa butter, help to jump-start skin repair. While the salve is completely edible, we don’t recommend actually eating it.

Melt coconut oil and cocoa butter in a small saucepan over low heat. When the oil is hot to the touch, add sage and rosemary. Let the mixture steep over low heat for 10 minutes, then turn the heat off and leave the pan on the stove to steep, uncovered, for another 1-2 hours, depending on desired potency of scent.
Strain out the leaves and discard. Pour the liquid into an 8-ounce glass jar, two 4-ounce jars, or four 2-ounce jars. Place lids on the jars and refrigerate overnight to harden. Remove from the fridge the next morning and keep in a cool, dry place.
To make ahead: Store in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months.
Cut the chicken into 4 pieces, cutting first in half along one side of the spine and then cutting off the thighs. Place the pieces in a large pot and cover with cold water. Turn the heat to high.
Add one carrot, one celery stalk, the onion, peppercorns, bay leaves, and garlic to the pot, along with one teaspoon of salt. Once the water boils, turn the heat to simmer and cover. Cook for 90 minutes.
Remove the pieces of chicken to a cutting board and allow to cool enough to handle. Strain the liquid from the pot into a large bowl using a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer.
Place the strained stock back into the pot and add the remaining celery, carrot, and green onion. Add the remaining teaspoon of salt and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to simmer for 12-15 minutes until the carrots are tender.
While the strained broth is simmering, remove the chicken skin and shred the meat. Return the shredded meat to the pot. Remove the pot from heat and add parsley. Cover and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Combine flour, dry milk powder, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Add water gradually, mixing to form a firm ball. Divide dough; shape into 12 balls. Let stand, covered, for 10 minutes. Roll each ball into a 6-in. circle. With a sharp knife, cut a 1/2-in.-diameter hole in center of each.
In a large cast-iron skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Fry dough circles, one at a time, until puffed and golden, about 1 minute on each side. Drain on paper towels; if desired, serve warm with butter, honey and fresh lemon juice.
