Vegan keto faux pho! warning that this absolutely does not replicate pho but it might scratch the itch!
mushrooms are revered in a lot of healing traditions for their medicinal properties – especially reishi, maitake, shiitake, cordyceps, and turkey tail – but all have anti-inflammatory properties via inhibition of nf-κb signaling, incorrect regulation of which has also been linked to cancer.
even though i generally prefer to eat raw, mushrooms are one of the foods i almost always cook since heating removes the chemical hydrazine, a carcinogen, that is otherwise present in trace amounts. it also breaks down their cell walls to make all that good nutrition easier to get into my body.

🍄 50g dried mushrooms, assorted
🍄 4 c water
🍄 100g (~1-1/2 cups) fresh mushrooms, sliced
🍄 12 spears organic asparagus
🍄 3 cloves garlic, minced
🍄 1 tbs fresh ginger, minced
🍄 2 tbs organic tamari
🍄 2 tsp organic toasted sesame oil
🍄 70g (~3/4 cup) organic snow peas
🍄 100g (about 1 cup) bean sprouts
🍄 chopped green onion, cilantro, lime or additional sesame oil to garnish, as desired
▶️ soak the dried mushrooms in 2 cups boiling water for at least 2 hours or overnight.
▶️ chop the reconstituted mushrooms and transfer them and the soaking water to a saucepan. add enough water to make 4 cups. add fresh mushrooms and simmer over low heat until mushrooms are cooked, about 8-10 minutes. add the asparagus in the last minute of cooking to just warm through. stir in raw garlic, ginger, tamari, and sesame oil.
▶️ divide between two bowls and top each with half the snow peas and bean sprouts.
