Mugwort & Mushroom Soup

Recently I was chatting to one of my newsletter subscribers from across the pond, who pointed me to a video about a Chinese women who was foraging Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris), she mentioned she used it in a mushroom soup recipe, and that was it. So I decided to try and make the soup, and this is the result. I have to say it turned out a treat.

  • 1 handful of mugwort tops (chopped)
