Ginseng Chicken Soup.

This is one of a nourishing soup one can have to keep up with one’s well being.

I call it a Tonic, “pick me up,” herbal soup.

The Koreans and Chinese use Ginseng for cooking as well as drink it as a tea. The Ginseng has such great medicinal values for Health, Vitality and Longevity!

In this simple recipe I have used a packet of premixed Ginseng herbal mix and boiled it with water. Presoaked Shiitake’ or Chinese Mushrooms (Toong-Koo) and presoaked Bean curd sheets had been added to the boiling stock. Firm Tofu cut into thick chunks enriched the soup even more so!

Chicken chunks that have been carefully cleaned of all fat are added into the hot stock for 10-15 minutes and left to simmer until tender.  For the Soup to become flavoursome, it should be simmered for at least an hour.

Three cloves of garlic can be added if desired as I had done, and I finished off cooking with some Light Soya Sauce.

This is very delicious can be served with Hot Steamed Rice accompanied with chopped hot chillies with lemon juice and Light Soy in a little sauce bowl.

Good to add some Fresh Lettuce to serve as well as a side dish in this simple meal!

All healthy ingredients are out there in the Market, so please make it a point everyday to delight yourself shopping around and think what you can bring home for your Family to Enjoy!

My Motto is:  Live to eat and Not Eat to Live!  It can be a one Simple Tasty Meal just to enjoy together!

Thanks very much indeed for visiting my Food-blog.
Please be so Kind as to let your Family and Friends come by and visit!

Cherrio!
