Similar in manner to the Miyabi Soup the Chinese Clear Mushroom Soup is both Gluten-Free and Vegan. Equally easy to make, I am a huge fan of the flavors found within this soup. Having made the switch to a plant-based lifestyle, this soup is frequently made within my home. Speaking of this soup, I will be making some later today. If you are looking for a healthy soup that will warm your soul, look no further! If you get the chance to try it out, let me know what you think!
Chinese Style Clear Mushroom Soup

½ inch ginger, chopped or ½ teaspoon finely chopped ginger
1 teaspoon finely chopped celery (optional)
½ teaspoon crushed black pepper or pepper powder or add as required

3 cups water
5 tablespoons chopped spring onion greens
salt as required
Step One: Rinse, wipe and slice or chop 200 grams white button mushrooms.
