The First Ever Superfood Mushroom Broth: Vegan and Organic!

The First Ever Superfood Mushroom Broth: Vegan and Organic!

Not often in life you get to present something you’re truly proud of. This Superfood Mushroom Broth is one instance for me.

I started drinking mushroom tea years ago for it’s supposed health benefits. Mushrooms live in a cloak of mystery. They are crazy fungi that we don’t know a ton about.

Chaga was my ‘shroom of choice at the time. Fast forward a couple of years and I had started a small organic bone broth company in Vancouver.

One year into Bluebird Provisions, the thought gradually entered my mind about what to make next. I was way too ‘in the weeds’ running around and working like a crazy person to prioritize what was next.

We need to keep innovating in order to grow and be able to serve you best. That is all I care about.

I’m always drawn back to mushrooms. I'm learning to trust my intuition. There is something about medicinal mushrooms that I can't explain. You need to experience it yourself!

Anyways, my mind pondered how I might be able to make a broth using medicinal mushrooms. However, medicinal mushrooms are tricky to cook with as they have a strong and bitter taste.

I shelved the idea and focused on growing our bone broth.

But the idea kept eating away at me. Eventually I started tinkering with recipes in my kitchen to see what I could come up with. I used chaga, reishi, shiitake, maitake, crimini, among others.

Early results were... less than inspiring. I went back to the drawing board. By board I mean google and cookbooks to see what info was already out there. For medicinal mushrooms in soup or broth form, it was zero.

However I did find some inspiration in traditional Japanese dashi. Dashi uses seaweed and bonito flakes. It’s a staple in Japanese cooking.

But knowing I wanted a vegan broth that uses mushrooms, I played around with vegan versions of a dashi stock.

After many iterations and recipe tweaks later (45 official test batches tracked in a spreadsheet), I am thrilled to introduce our Medicinal Mushroom Broth to you!

The Medicinal Mushroom Broth is Certified Organic and vegan. It is the only mushroom broth to my knowledge that uses reishi mushrooms and wakame seaweed.

Reishi (or lingzhi) is the mushroom of spiritual potency. It’s been used for 3000 years in both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. You can read more about it in my primer on medicinal mushrooms.

Mushroom Broth Ingredients:

Organic Crimini Mushrooms, Organic Dried Shiitake Mushrooms, Organic Dried Reishi Mushrooms, Organic Wakame Seaweed, Organic Ginger, Organic Garlic, Himalayan Salt.

It’s finally here!

Early feedback I’m getting from customers at trades shows is fantastic! Everyone loves the taste. People are more excited about the mushroom broth than our bone broth.

I’ll spare you the minutiae of why things go so delayed. There were many lessons learned with launching a new product. You can read a short version in my 2018 review.

I held off announcing officially because I wanted to wait until the mushroom broth was actually on lots of  store shelves.

As it stands we are available in certain stores throughout Quebec, Ontario and BC. We are working hard to get it into all of our current retail partners, however, these things take time.

Here’s where you can find our medicinal mushroom broth:

Hi Lauren,

I wish we did but unfortunately we do not ship this one to the US. We do ship our bone broth powder to the US. But frozen is so hard to ship across borders :(

Connor at Bluebird Provisions
