Risotto 2 Ways with Om Mighty Mushroom Broth

November 23rd, 2020

Many of the most comforting winter recipes start with broth. More than a cooking staple, it’s also filled with healthful nutrients. If, like many people, you’ve got immunity on your mind these days, try upgrading your go-to broth with OM’s Mighty Mushroom Broths. Flavorful, convenient, and nourishing, they provide a new and innovative way to get more functional mushrooms—and more health benefits—into your diet.

What is Mushroom Broth?

Traditionally, broth is made from water simmered with either meat or vegetables, plus herbs and spices, which infuses the liquid with flavor and nutrients. You can make your own from scratch, or purchase pre-made broth. Om’s Mighty Mushroom Broths come in a convenient powdered form, so they’re easy to use and store. To make your Mighty Mushroom Broth, all you have to do is add one packet to eight ounces of hot water, stir, et voilà—broth!

OM’s Mighty Mushroom Broths aren’t like your traditional liquid broths. By taking a powdered form, these broths make it easy to create soups, stews, and simmering dishes. (They’re also far less bulky than those cartons in your fridge.) To make Mighty Mushroom Broth, all you have to do is add one packet to eight ounces of hot water, stir, et voilà—broth!

Om’s Mighty Mushroom Broths feature a curated blend of organic whole mushrooms—shiitake, lion’s mane, and reishi—that are effective in supporting immune health, gut health, focus, and alertness. These superfood blends are paired with wholesome ingredients like veggies, herbs, and spices that deliver rich flavor. They’re also more versatile than you might think:

  • Before your caffeinated cup of coffee or tea, kick-start your morning with a warm cup of protein-packed broth.
  • Keep packets in your purse or backpack to enjoy on the go.
  • Add to your favorite recipes that call for broth, like soups, stews, pasta, and rice dishes.

OM’s Mighty Veggie Miso Broth

OM’s Mighty Veggie Miso Broth is a healthy (and vegan) way to add seven grams of complete plant-based protein to your day. In just one packet, you’ll get more than 2,000mg of organic shiitake, lion’s mane, and reishi and 22 amino acids from pea protein that include leucine, which may help maintain lean body mass (in conjunction with exercise). This delicious blend of organic miso, veggies, herbs, and spices make for a delicious and satiating broth upgrade.

OM’s Mighty Beef Bone Broth

Similar to OM’s Mighty Veggie Miso Broth, the Mighty Beef Bone Broth also contains more than 2,000mg of superfood mushroom magic, plus 10 grams of nourishing protein and collagen from organic, grass-fed, pasture-raised U.S. beef.
