Let's take a look at how some of the key ingredients in this Portobello Stew can offer healing support:
Mushrooms: Contain hundreds of undiscovered phytochemical compounds, many of which are detoxifying for the liver without hurting it. Mushrooms are medicine for the liver. Many people fear mushrooms because they believe that their status as a type of fungus means they feed fungus within the body. It’s just the opposite. A mushroom is a fungus that destroys fungus, and the liver accepts mushrooms as allies—if the liver is dealing with unwanted microorganisms such as fungus, mushrooms are very helpful in pushing them out of the liver. Mushrooms also reduce fungus, bacteria, and viruses in the intestinal tract, allowing for cleaner nutrients and cleaner blood to arrive in the liver.
Potatoes: Abundant in amino acids that specifically inhibit viral growth. Potatoes are high in glucose that provides substance to the liver, as it’s precisely what the liver relies on to keep strong. It also helps build up glycogen storage, the very resource that protects us against blood sugar problems, weight gain, fatty liver, and dirty blood syndrome. Potatoes keep the liver grounded and stable, giving us a good constitution. They’re also shunned for being a nightshade, when in truth they have the ability to reverse many varieties of chronic illness.
Onions: Very similar to garlic, onions have antimicrobial sulfur compounds that expel unfriendly pathogens from the liver. Onions have a disinfecting quality for the liver, keeping it from becoming inflamed. They also improve the temperature control or “thermostat” of the liver so it can heat and cool itself properly.
1 onion, roughly chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 pound portobello or portobellini mushrooms, stems removed and chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 carrots, roughly chopped
11/2 pounds potatoes, quartered
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
3 cups water or Liver Rescue Broth (recipe on page 394)
1 tablespoon pure tomato paste (find one without additives)
2 tablespoons arrowroot plus 3 tablespoons cold water, to thicken (optional)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
Place a large ceramic nonstick pot on medium-high heat and add the onion. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until it starts to soften, adding a spoonful of water if needed. Add the celery and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook until softened and browned, about 5 to 7 minutes. Then add the garlic, carrots, potatoes, thyme, and rosemary. Stir well. Pour in the water and tomato paste and bring it to a boil. Cook uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes, until the potatoes and carrots are soft.
If desired, mix together the arrowroot and cold water in a small bowl to make a slurry. Pour the slurry into the stew and stir well. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the stew has thickened. Remove from heat and serve, topped with fresh parsley. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
