How about cooking with fresh Cordycep Mushrooms?

Though commonly known as cordycep flowers, these bright orange, needle like looking are cultivated fungi.

Normally I would purchase the dried ones from the dried goods supplier.

During my recent trip to the supermarket, I manage to to find the fresh ones amongst the herbs section.

Without hesitation, I just grabbed one packet off the shelf. 😄

These golden hue mushrooms has a woody aroma and springy texture.

I first came across this unique ingredient while lunching at a Cantonese Restaurant few weeks back .

How about Tonic Chicken Soup with Cordycep Mushrooms?

Half portion of yellow country chicken into chunks.

Thoroughly wash the chicken and blanch.

Rinse and set aside.

In a pot, add the chicken pieces, a bunch of fresh cordycep mushrooms together with a packet of this tonic ingredients.

Bring to boil and simmer until the chicken is tender.

Best to serve this soup hot.
