Blogging world is full of excitement and fun where flow of inspirations are always being circulated around through all kinds of social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and etc. Recently while I am on holiday mood and feel so "lost" on what to prepare for our daily meals, I managed to pick up some really good ideas from friends' photos over at instagram. And without hesitate I tried this Cordyceps Militaris Soup shared by Julia, Aromacookery photo (link here).
Although this was not my first time using Cordyceps Militaris in soup but after seeing Julia's post, I decided to try out her version by adding in some dried shiitake mushrooms to enhance the taste of this nourishing soup.
Cordyceps Militaris (虫草子实体 / 虫草花) has an aftertaste which is quiet similar to "mushroom" flavour when it is used to boil soup and moreover it also gives a flavorsome finishing to the end product too. You can read more about it HERE.

long stewed soup (老火靓汤)" is something that every mother wish to do for the family especially those soups that consists nourishing effect for the body. And in order to achieve those restaurants taste of long stewed soup, there is no shortcut for it as you need to simmer the soup ingredients over low heat for sometime. Another point to note is too much of water would also dilute the taste of the soup so the amount of ingredients and water used must be in correct portions.
Cordyceps Militaris is a very good ingredient to be added into herbal soup. For more ideas on using it for soup, you can refer to Elaine, Wokkingmum(HERE) or LK, Food4tots(HERE) for their recipe ideas too.
As I would be away on holiday till Mid-June, I do apologise for the lack of post(s) while I am away. But during this period you still can get some updates through our facebook page HERE if I could get hold of some network over there. Till then have a great week ahead.
