姚太的淮山药材汤- Wild Yam Herbal soup

近日姚先生工作繁忙,吃不定时,姚太决定在这个长周末准备几道有益身心的佳肴。借此平台分享姚先生、姚太的大宝贝-凯,和小宝贝-宣都爱喝的汤–淮山药材汤。 

Mr Eio has been really busy lately, so Mrs Eio decided to boil some soup for the family over this long weekend. Eio kids’ favorite soup- Wild Yan herbal soup. 

  
懂得使用淮山(山药)此食材的应该知道它健脾养胃的功效。既然要煲汤,姚太就把其他能补气、活血、明目的药材也一同加入。

Many of us would know Wild Yam nourishes our spleen & improves digestion. Mrs Eio added other herbs to improve the taste & nutritional value of her pot of goodness. 
  
凯超爱淮山汤,因此姚太得倒入至少1公升的水,利用特大的锅煮汤,才足够全家享用。

  

  
材料有:(ingredients) 

淮山 (一条约新币$3.50~$4.50) -切丁。(huai Shan – Chinese wild yam)

药材(分量如下):
枸杞子、龙眼肉和红枣少许(燥热)、玉竹、党参、黄芪(若小孩不喜欢它的味道,可免)。(姚太会乘大减价时购买药材存在冰箱内备用。)(herbs: wolfberries, dried longan, red dates, solomon’s seal, dang sheng & Huang qi) 

猪骨或半只鸡 (姚太偏爱超市所卖的Sakura 樱花鸡~$9.70一只)肉切块(pork or half a chicken- Mrs Eio highly recommends Sakura Chicken)

水大概1公升。(at least 1 litre of water)
盐少许。(salt to taste)
———

 各位可食用晒干的淮山。但凯喜欢吃煮熟的生淮山,姚太只好“投其所好”!

把所有材料放入锅中,就可开始煮汤了。

时间:45分钟 (placed all ingredients in the pot & boil for 45 min) 

   
 为了节省能源和无须看火,姚太常使用La Gourmet 的万能锅。但有时为了节省时间,孩子耍脾气,手脚得快些,眼前若有特大happy call 锅,姚太也绝不忌讳使用!

Mrs Eio usually used these 2 pots to prepare her soup. Well… Of course, you can also use Tan-Yu pot, clay pot or Cornell pots etc whichever that suits your needs. 

姚太认为:烹饪没一定的方程式。只要能帮你省时、省力、省钱并助你一臂之力的,就是好食谱、好用具、好食材。持家的妇女要兼顾育儿和做家事,还要当先生的贤妻。若能轻松便利地烹煮一餐,相信主妇会快乐、漂亮些!

There’s no standard formula or the one-&-only way in cooking. Any recipes, tools or ingredients that can help a multi-tasking homemaker prepare a meal with ease is great help indeed! 

好汤、好心情。祝所有网友们周末愉快!

Great soup. A pleasant day indeed! Enjoy…
