White Fungus, Red Dates, Lotus Seeds & Longan Soup

It’s a sweet soup, more like dessert.

Ingredients are simple:

White fungus soak in water till soft and tear them apart. Lotus seed washed in water. Split in halves and remove the green sprout if there is. Remove the seed of red dates and cut or tear into smaller pieces. Other ingredients are longan meat, goji berries and rock sugar.

Put everything into pressure cooker. (I really love my pressure cooker. It makes cooking a lot easier.) Add in 6 cups water. Cook under high pressure for 50 mins.

White fungus becomes as soft as jelly. Soup is thick.

A good desert for women especially.
