Asparagus & Sesame Chicken Soup Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

2 lb chicken
3 tbsp sesame oil
6 slices ginger root
1/2 cup medium sherry
1/2 tsp salt
2 cup warm water
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup button mushrooms, canned
8 fresh asparagus spears

Recipe Preparation

Preparation: Rinse chicken, remove fat pockets, pat dry, and chop
into bite-size pieces. NOTE: if tempted to use breast meat without
bones, please don`t; bones add to body and flavor of soup. Peel and
slice ginger root. Wash and cut asparagus into 2" sections.

Braising: Heat wok to medium hot. Add sesame oil. Start braising
chicken a few pieces at a time when oil begins to smell. Sesame oil
will burn at lower temperature than other cooking oils, so avoid hot
wok. After browning lightly, return chicken pieces to wok; add ginger
slices, sherry and salt. When sherry boils, add water and sugar. Turn
up heat, bring to boil, then reduce heat to simmer, cover and simmer
for 30 minutes. Add mushrooms and asparagus, simmer for another 15
minutes.

Transfer to covered soup tureen (or put plate on top of soup bowl),
place in steamer on low, and hold until ready to serve.

You can make this soup in large sauce pan, if wok is needed for
something else.

 

 

Servings: 4

Food Tips of the Week

A few tips on healthy eating

If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:


* Read food labels Don't trust the food label that boasts 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the reverse of the can or packet. Many are only a little lower and in some cases still more than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are identically the same.

Lycopene super foods
(includes apricot, papaya & baby jackfruit)

The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic compound used to color foods and member of the same group of phytochemicals as carotene. This chemical is accountable for the deep red colour of quite a few natural foods.

Fortunately, unlike numerous nutrients, it does not become less effective if cooked but is genuinely improved by the cooking process.

. Its most valuable health contribution is that it works as an antioxidant and appears to help lower the risks of cancer.

Lycopene is the most powerful carotenoid quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with aging of the skin. It's also believed to curtail the development of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
