Quick American Ginseng Soup

Posted by Admin on Food & Drinks
I bought a packet of Yew Chian Haw America Ginseng Soup at Fairprice few days back. The ingredients consist of American Ginseng, Rhizoma Polygonati Odorati, Fructus Lycii, Rhizonma Dioscorea Batatas, Euphoria Longan, Fructus Ziziphi Jujubee. As the ingredients are mostly in grounded form within the sachet and it is appropriate to use it to make quick herbal soup. To optimize the flavour and goodness from the herbal sachet, the soup can be simmered longer or prepared in the morning and re-heat prior to serving at lunch or dinner.

Preparation: 5 mins, Cooking time: 20 mins

Ingredients (serves 2-3)
° 1 sachet Yew Chian Haw America Ginseng Soup
° 1-1.25 litres water
° 125g-150g king oyster mushroom, sliced or cut into small chunks
° salt, to taste
° a small handful fresh chopped spring onion or coriander leaves (optional), for garnish

Method
1. Place all the ingredients and water in a pot and continually boil for 15-20 minutes or until all the mushrooms are tender. Season to taste with salt.
2. Ladle the soup into individual serving bowls, garnish with spring onion or coriander leaves and serve hot.
