Since working mum has a lot of household chores to take care during weekend, I specially pick up dishes that required minimum preparation time and use "steaming" instead of "stir-fry" to avoid oily kitchen stove. So I am sure these 4 simple soup and steamed dishes would come in handy for your weekend meal ideas.
DOUBLE-BOILED CORDYCEPS FLOWER HERBAL SOUP (虫草花鸡汤)
Cordyceps Flower (虫草花) is not the flower of cordyceps (冬虫草) but rather it is the artificial cultivation of cordyceps. Although cordyceps flower is not natural but it has similar nutritive value with natural cordyceps which helps resist oxidation and improve the body's immune system. You can easily purchased this herbs from major Chinese Medical Hall such as ZTP, Fu Hua and etc.
DOUBLE-BOILED GINSENG CHICKEN SOUP
Pao Sheng (泡参) which is the root of the American ginseng is used in traditional Chinese medicine to improve "qi" and reduce "heat" of the body.Ginseng comes in a few form such as Ginseng Slice, Ginseng Root or whole Ginseng itself which are used for different purpose of cooking and medical terms. Here I have prepared Double-boiled Chicken Soup with Ginseng slices which helps to improved the QI circulation in our body as well as benefits those who always stay up late at night.
STEAMED PORK BELLY WITH MUI CHOY
Steamed Chicken With Mui Choy (梅菜鸡)" which is a twist from the usual Pork Belly recipe and it is quiet well-received by most of the readers as well as my family. But there are also some readers who are interested on the usual Steamed Pork Belly With Mui Choy (梅菜扣肉) so in this post I am sharing a quick and easy recipe which will enable you to enjoy this all-time favourite at home too.
STEAMED CHICKEN WITH CHINESE SAUSAGE
Lap Cheong (Chinese Sausage - 腊肠)" to the chicken. I love this one dish meal as it is so simple to prepared and yet it goes so well with even just a bowl of steamed rice.
Till then have a great weekend ahead. Will share more quick and easy weekend dishes in near future. Do drop me a note in the comment if you wish to see your favourite dish being featured on the "Weekend Dishes" recipes.
