Chicken soup for the soul

If you know me well, you'd know I'm a soup lover.
Basically I love all types of soup, especially chinese herbal soup ;)

Had this chicken soup (养心宁神鸡汤) yesterday during lunch time, which according to the cook, can helps to sleep better, as well as calming our mind. Hmm, should have taken this for dinner instead...

The soup has lots of wolfberries, lotus seeds and chinese licorice, and also slices of chicken.
Wolfberries are famous in improving eyesight, and reduce tiredness; lotus seeds are good in promoting health and is a good anti aging source; chinese licorice helps in detoxification and reduce cholesterol.

I think the recipe is pretty simple, should drink more this kinda of soups...

By the way, today's 20.10.2010, such a special day! I wish all my readers a wonderful day! ;)

  8. Somehow,i don't really like herbal soups, they tend to be very oily, i would prefer those simple vegi soups, easy to boil and all..

  12. Hi HayLey,

    I think I do not know u well so I do not know that you are a soup lover. Hahaha!

    I like Kacang Ma and Ginseng soup. Sometimes I bought them from nearby eateries. I also believe that these two are good for health.

    Anyway, hope you will enjoy your soup.

  13. Hi Willie, I really did enjoy my soup!
    Kacang Ma and Ginseng? Hmm, I think I never try that before.. perhaps should check it out someday ;)
    You have a nice day!

  14. Hi Hayley, I am not a soup person, unless its hum choy pai kuat tong, ha ha.
    That soup looks delicious!

    My wife always makes tong suey too, but will grumble I only take abit.
    But iced coffee? Anytime!
    Have a nice day. Lee.

  15. Lee, I'm sure your wife cooks well, even with tong suey! Next time got chance, send some over to me please :P
