Those who have to socialize extensively often suffer from unbalanced diet that leads to erratic metabolism that weakens the body. Here is a soup I came across that helps to calm upset stomachs resulting from irregular sleeping routine and relieves cough.


Suitable for those with weak stomach and bronchus

Ingredients:

  • 5 maces (Approx 18.9g) American ginseng
  • 3 apples, stems & cores removed and cut into pieces
  • 2 snow pears, stems & cores removed and cut into pieces
  • 1 mace (Approx 3.8g) Fritillaria bulb (Chuan bei)
  • 8 dried figs
  • 3 maces (Approx 11.3g) sweet almond
  • 2 maces (Approx 7.6g) bitter almond
  • 4 honey dates
  • Approx 300g lean meat
  • Water

  1. Rinse all ingredients and set aside.
  2. Scald lean meat in boiling water for 5 minutes, without cutting into pieces.
  3. Place all ingredients in a pot with 3000ml water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Then, turn to low heat and simmer for 3 hours.
  4. Turn off heat and season with salt (optional).
Naturally sweet in taste.
