Shiitake mushrooms are wonderful to stimulate the appetite lost through acute stress or ill health. This soup is so easy to digest and perfect for anyone who is emotionally or physically sensitive.
Cover shiitake in a bowl with 1 cup hot water. Let stand for 20 minutes.
Add the soaking water to a saucepan with 6 cups water, 1 spring onion, ginger, star anise, mirin and tamari. Bring to the boil slowly and add the carrots and sliced shiitake (stems removed).
Cook for 10-15 minutes.
Add bok choy and cook a further 2 minutes. Remove ginger and star anise. Place into serving bowls and add 1 tsp chopped coriander and 1 tsp chopped shallots. Serve.
