I'm not a fan of lengthy recipe introductions, so in the spirit of getting straight to the point...LET'S GET COOKING!!
Mushroom Ramen Bowl
2 tsp grapeseed oil, divided
12 ounces baby portobello mushrooms, cleaned and trimmed
1 small red onion, sliced
2 shallot cloves, minced
1 ½ tsp freshly grated ginger
5 cups vegetable broth (homemade broth is best but you can use what you have on hand)
1 bay leaf
3 Portobello caps cut into ½ inch slices
1 bunch Lacinto kale, cleaned and chopped
1 bunch baby bok choy, cleaned and chopped
1 cup tri-color bell peppers, chopped

Sea salt to taste
Cayenne pepper to taste

2. Add the veggie broth and bay leaf to the pot. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and allow to simmer
