Stewed Taro with Mushroom for Fall Dryness | 蘑菇药膳煮芋艿

Taro is a starchy root vegetable common in Chinese and Asian cuisine. It's high in fiber and antioxidants and contains B vitamins, Zinc, Magnesium, and Iron.  It's also a slow-digesting, complex carb! 

In TCM, taro is considered neutral and sweet, making it perfect for late-summer season transitioning into autumn. It moistens the Lungs and addresses dryness in the upper respiratory region. 

This stewed taro in mushroom broth is fragrant and comforting. Our Five Seasons TCM Mushroom blend is also Yin-nourishing and perfect for alleviating autumn dryness. Its a great addition to a Mid-Autumn Festival meal. Taro is readily available at most Asian supermarkets! When choosing your taro, make sure to pick firm taro with minimal bruising.
