Soup for the day

I adore soup after I met my hubby. I guess being a Foochow, soup is a must in every meal for hubby. I learn most of my soup recipe from my mum and mum-in-law. One soup that I love is Ginseng with mustard chicken soup. It smells and tastes appetizing, that I can eat with my rice without other dishes.

It is very easy to prepare, so why don't just try it out yourself.

Ingredients: Ginseng (choose the smaller roots, not those big one); salted mustard, chicken pieces (I used drumsticks and chicken wings here, but organic chicken is much prefer), salt to taste

1. After cleaning the ginseng and mustard, simply throw them into a big pot of water. Let it boil for at least 2 - 3 minutes before throwing in your chicken pieces.
2. Let it cooks on the stove.
3. Add salt to taste if necessary.
