I was in NYC visiting my cousins and came back with… how do you call it again?… Ah yes, a MUFFIN TOP. I am in major need of a detox and put together this recipe that would satiate me, satisfy me, and purify me all at the same time.

  • Vegetable stock
  • 8 uncooked prawns (head off, with or without shell)
  • 15 button mushrooms (halved)
  • 1 bunch of organic Lacinato kale (stems removed, leaves cut into thick ribbons)
  • 1 bunch of organic parsley (grossly chopped)
  • 1 bunch of organic cilantro (grossly chopped)
  • 1 bunch of organic chervil (grossly chopped)
  • Mint leaves (grossly chopped)
  • 1-2 inch piece of fresh ginger (cut into sticks)
  • 4 scallions (chopped)
  • 1 lime
  • A dash of coconut vinegar
  • A dash of fish sauce
  • A dash of soy sauce
  • A squeeze of Sriracha chili sauce

Put 1 quart vegetable stock + 1/2 quart water into a pot, bring to a boil. Throw in the mushrooms, kale, parsley, cilantro, chervil, mint, ginger, simmer for 3 minutes. Add the prawns and simmer until the prawns are cooked (pink). Remove from the heat, add the scallions, the juice from the lime, coconut vinegar, fish sauce, soy sauce, and Sriracha. Eat hot and enjoy the detoxifying effect!
