Fun Health Facts

Shiitakes are a superfood powerhouse, known for their impressively high amounts of natural copper. One serving provides 72% of your recommended daily intake! This mineral promotes healthy blood vessels, immunity and bones.

Butternut squash is another superfood, rich in nutrients with a low-caloric count. It's particularly high in vitamins A and C, aiding in cell growth, eye health, immunity and wound healing.

Broccoli is also a superfood and a great source of protein and fiber. It is believed to lower the risk of heart disease, osteoporosis and cancer.

 Tips & Tricks

  • Freshly grated ginger is best in the sauce, but if you can't acquire it, use ginger powder.

  • I like to use vegetable broth to keep this recipe plant-based, but feel free to use chicken or bone broth if you prefer.
