Mushroom Stewed Taro | 蘑菇药膳煮芋艿

Taro is a starchy root vegetable common in Chinese and other Asian cuisines. It is high in fiber and antioxidants and contains B vitaims, zinc, magnesium, and iron.  It's also a slow, complex carb! 

In TCM, taro is considered neutral and sweet, meaning it's perfect for late summer transitioning into autumn. It is moisturising to the Lungs and improves the immune system.

This taro stewed in mushroom broth is fragrant and comforting. Our Five Seasons Mushroom Blend is also Yin-nourishing and perfect to alleviate autumn dryness, and this dish is a great addition to a Mid-Autumn Festival meal. Taro is readily available at any Asian supermarket! When shopping, make sure to pick firm taro with minimal bruising.
