This soup’s ingredients are plain and simple extremely rich in iodine and beneficial for those who are iodine deficient. Those who have an under active thyroid can benefit from extra iodine. Believe it or not, leave vegetables like kale, cabbage and cauliflower out of this recipe as they do NOT assist thyroid function. The below site is very educational and repeats much of what I have learned from a variety of sources.
-Any fish you like. Shrimp, salmon etc. (total protein for 2 people: about 8 ounces)
-oil of choice (not canola)
-Vegetable broth of choice and I think the low sodium tastes best. Leave the chemical filled broths out of this recipe. (about 4 cups)
-cut mushrooms (fiber-rich)
-turmeric, cumin, ginger, cayenne, curry, whatever (add spices to desired taste)
-cut seaweed pieces (a little more is better, then a little more)
-1/2 c. coconut milk (optional)
Add oil to a medium heated pot and add onions and garlic.
Add pieces of fish and cook.
Add mushrooms, shrimp and spices
When fish is cooked (0nce it flakes and shrimp are pink) add broth.
1/2 c. or so of coconut milk (optional)
Quick and simple.
Serve with brown rice, soba noodles or rice noodles if desired.
