Sick Girls...Ginger Soup

I got a text today from a friend who was not feeling well.  She wanted to know if I  had a fabulous ginger soup recipe? Well of course I do!  Just let me add some kale and parsley to give it ample amounts of vitamins A and C, and you will be good to go.  So if you're not feeling good...try this soup.  It's flavor is warm, peppery and slightly sweet, while the aroma is spicy and awakens your "Sick Girl" senses.
1/4 cup sesame oil
1 sweet onion, diced
1 container mushrooms
3 cups vegetable broth
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
2 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup Italian parsley, chopped
1/4 cup kale, sliced
1 cup brown rice spaghetti, cooked al dente in a separate pan
Optional: 2 tablespoons Spicy Seed Mix

Method

1) In a separate container boil water and make brown rice pasta
2) In another container that can hold all the ingredients, heat sesame oil, and add diced onion.  Saute until onion begins to lighten in color, about 5 minutes. Add mushroom and lightly salt and pepper (1/4 teaspoon of each), saute until mushrooms soak up the remaining oil left in the pan. Add the broth, green onions and fresh ginger, continue to cook until all flavors combine, about 10 minutes.
3) Meanwhile, chop the parsley and slice the kale. 
4) When soup is done, place pasta in bowl, add the mushroom and broth mixture and top with chopped parsley and kale. 
Optional: Add sprouted spicy seed mix
