Aunty J invited me to her place for lunch and one of her dishes she made was herbal chicken soup. Inspired by her dish, and since i had a packet of black fungus in my refrigerator, I decided to make it. :)
Here's my version of it...
Used the herbs above ( picture courtesy of Noob Kitchen)
In addition to those herbs, I added
1/2 clove of garlic
5 red dates
ginseng ( 1 inch)
ginger ( 1 inch)
barley ( 3 Tablespoon)
"tiny" chicken ( that can be bought from Stater Brothers frozen section)
Place the above in the crock pot and leave it for several hours, usually overnight, so that it is ready the next morning.
Add in the black fungus ( that has been soaked in the water for several hours), mushroom seasoning and salt. Remove from crock pot and cook on the stove for several more minutes.
After having it for dinner, I kept it in the refrigerator. Removed the layer of oil on top of the soup the next day and used it to make noodle soup. :)
