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

Advice on losing weight

Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Know what is in your food Be sceptical of advertizing that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the back of the tin or package. Quite a few are only slightly reduced and in some cases still higher than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are exactly the same.

* It is possible to make really nice smoothies by using low carbohydrate yogurt. Yes, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you love smoothies you can make perfectly acceptable alternatives by using reduced carbohydrate yogurt and fruit. Of course, you will need to ensure you only make use of fruit that is low in carbs and use the whole of the fruit as you need the fiber.

Cruciferous vegetables, Superfoods that also help your Your diet
