It’s root is deep and it centers the stews taste quite well. It offers a warmth that nourishes both body and mind. Fall in love with this process.

For the most delightful Mushroom Ginger Stew, chop the cabbage, broccoli, red pepper into thicker chunks. The carrots should be sliced into small half circles. It's a stew so the spoonfuls will want to be more chunky and stocky and add depth to each bite. Boil the flour in two cups of water in a separate pan and add to pot. Simmer in coconut oil on low until vegetables have hints of caramelization and are slightly soft. Grate fresh ginger and simmer for 10-15 minutes on a low to medium heat. Slice up all mushrooms and set aside. Add in the ground ginger, garlic cloves, mushroom stock, add salt and pepper and simmer on medium for 10 minutes. Add in chopped mushrooms. Top with goat cheese and heavy amounts of black pepper.
Hope you enjoy! It's not quite consistently warm in Minnesota yet, so it's safe to hold on to a couple warm dishes.
