    Taste of this tonic soup was pleasant. It was fragrant, flavoursome with natural sweetness in the palate. Adding some Hua Diao wine is important to enhance the taste of the soup. This soup is healthy and beneficial for all in the family. The silky chicken is fairly small compared to a normal chicken. It does not necessarily have black feathers. In fact, its plummage is more furry than feathers and many have snowy white plummage. It is called black chicken because its beak, bones, flesh, skin and even internal organs are black or dark blue in colour. It doesn't look very appealing because of the dark colour and the meat is fairly dry (in my opinion) but it is valued for its curative effects. Modern scientific research has discovered that the silky chicken's level of protein, vitamin B, 18 amino acids and minerals are much higher than normal chicken while cholesterol and saturated fats are much lower. It is almost always prepared in tonics or herbal soups together with chinese herbs

    Recipe #455428

    This is a recipe for making chicken soup from scratch, not with leftovers from last night’s roasted chicken. The beauty of this soup is in its simplicity and how one bird makes one pot of soup. It calls for removing the breast meat prior to cooking and reserving for final preparations. The rest of the chicken will be used for making the broth. This is important to note because the chicken parts used to make the broth will be devoid of flavor after 45 minutes of cooking.

    An important herb in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is astragalus root, called Huang Qi in China. It's used to strengthen the body's immune system, known as wei qi in TCM. Astragalus root can be found dried in Chinese herbal shops or some natural health food stores. If you don't have access to astragalus, you can omit it from the recipe.

    Recipe #455422

    This is not a typical hearty soup, it is a chinese thickened soup that is closer to the popular hot and sour soup. Chinese thickened soups usually contain a lot of finely sliced or chopped ingredients. For a new cook, gathering and chopping up so many ingredients can be daunting. This beef soup recipe has only a few ingredients so it is a good practice dish for perfecting the techniques of chopping ingredients and thickening the soup using cornstarch or arrowroot powder. This beef vegetable soup contains a chinese vegetable known as chinese kale or chinese broccoli (芥兰 gai lan). The leaves can be quite tough and bitter but the stems are wonderfully crunchy and juicy. Gai lan is not usually found in soups, they are better quick fried with chopped garlic.If you can't find chinese kale or chinese broccoli, substitute with broccoli stems or kale stems. Peel off the tough outer skin.

By mid morning, you will have a nice hot flask of sweet soup. Dried longan helps blood circulation and is good for ladies who feel cold during their menstrual cycles. Red dates is good for an easily irritable stomach. Both dried longan and red dates are very sweet. It is therefore not necessary to add any sugar.

    American ginseng is reputed to be a gentle cooling herb and candied dates gives extra sweetness to the clear broth. The recipe here uses the thermal cooker but you can use the slow cooker too. Use a normal soup pot for the first 20 minutes and shorten the cooking time by about 1 hour.

    Recipe #455270

    Broccoli and tomato is considered a great anti-oxidant pair. They are reputed to aid in cell repair, balance blood pressure and lower blood sugar. However, they are not suitable for everyone. Those with kidney problems should avoid them. This astragalus vegetable recipe tells you to remove the tomato skin because it is not easily digested. This is good for people who have digestive issues or for the elderly. If you like the skin (like me), you can skip that step. Astragalus root, known as 黄芪 huang qi in mandarin, is a common chinese herb used to boost the immune system and helps relieve fatigue. If you are new to it, add just a little so that the taste is not too strong.
