1/2 oz dried Shiitake mushrooms
2 cups celery stalks and leaves, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, peeled 
3 medium carrots, chopped
1 small fennel bulb, chopped
1 thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger root (peeled and minced)
1 thumb-sized piece of fresh turmeric root (peeled and minced)
2 tsp pink Himalayan or sea salt
1 tsp black or red peppercorns 

Directions:
