Chilly weather often brings colds, sniffles, shivers, and coughs, making winter miserable. While you might turn to Grandma’s chicken soup first, consider some of these soups from around the world with special healing benefits.
Gingko Nut Porridge
Fennel Fish Soup
Several ginkgo nuts, shelled and skins removed 3 or 4 beancurd sheets, rinsed and torn into smaller pieces ½ cup rice 7 cups water 1 teaspoon chicken granules Salt to taste
Wash rice, put into the rice pot and add in 7 cups water. Switch onto “Porridge” mode of the rice cooker. Once the rice grains have started to soften, add in the gingko nuts and cover. Once the porridge is soft, check for desired consistency, add in the limp beancurd sheets, salt, and the chicken granules, and stir. ▶▶
