Dashi stock or soy sauce (if the flavor is too weak)
Add 200 ml of water and the maitake mushrooms to a pot, and simmer over low heat to extract the weight loss components of the mushrooms. Heating the maitake mushrooms at low heat provides the maximum level of effectiveness for weight loss and extracts the best flavor from them.
Placed the ✿ ingredients marked with in a bowl.
Pour in the simmered maitake soup to finish. Break apart the umeboshi salt cured plum, and enjoy. If you find that the flavour isn't strong enough, add some dashi stock or soy sauce to adjust the seasoning.
Adding miso or tofu (100 ml) instead of the umeboshi salt cured plum is also delicious. You could even add more low-calorie mushrooms to make it more filling.
Maitake mushrooms contain many of a protease called maitake protease , so cooking or consuming these with meat, fish, eggs etc. is beneficial.
