Wood Ear and Chicken Soup

by · 3 comments
Wood ear is a kind of edible fungus often used in Chinese cooking. Wood ear is black in colour, so looks not quite appealing to eyes. Yet, we can’t underestimate its value to our health. It can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol.

I often use wood ear in my cooking, like Chinese New Year traditional dish, stir-fry with chicken, make the classic hot and sour soup and imitation shark fin soup.  If you feel like having a vegetarian dish, wood ear will work with many vegetables. You can make this Stir Fried Bean Sprouts, Carrots & Wood Ear Fungus dish. When I make dumplings, I also like putting in some wood ear to add a texture in the fillings. Ever thought about making san choi bao (lettuce wraps) with wood ears? They taste really good with roast duck meat too.

Mango is in season here down under. It’s my family’s all-time favourite fruit. What makes me even feel happier is that the mango tree grown in our backyard bears more large mangoes this year. Every mango is large, juicy and sweet.

Braised Pork Ribs with Pumpkin

Pork and pumpkin are good partners to produce an appealing dish. Here it’s one of my favourite dishes, Braised Pork Ribs with Pumpkin.

Braised Pork Ribs with Pumpkin

Whenever I go shopping for groceries, I’d often buy a pumpkin back home because their shape and colour are beautiful, taste heavenly sweet, as well as they are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

After moving to Australia, I have been addicted to eating pumpkin whether it’s cooked in Western or Asian way. There are several different kinds of pumpkin? Which kind is the best? One of my friends said that butternut squash is the best.

Yeah, I agree with her. For me, it’s also the best kind to bake in an oven. When it comes to cooking them in Asian way, I just feel the Jap/Kent pumpkin is the most suitable for being braised with meat.

Here it’s one of my favourite dishes, Braised Pork Ribs with Pumpkin. Just a side note, I found lots of Chinese food blogs out there that are praising the combination of pork and pumpkin. It seems that pork and pumpkin are good partners to produce an appealing dish.

Traditionally, this Shaoxing Goji Chicken is a claypot dish made in winter days. I reckon this dish can be enjoyed on any days throughout the year. It’s so tasty with splendid aroma, perfectly goes with steamed rice.

I like the colour contrast of this chicken dish. It’s so appealing to the family’s eyes. Once it’s served on our dining table, everyone was eager to dig in and taste.
