"Chinese Herbs" Porridge

You must be wondering what is the main ingredient for the porridge??

I am using chinese dates and Chinese Wolfberries (Gou Qi/Gei Chi) to cook the porridge. As I know, Gei Chi rich in vitamin C, and also contain large amounts of vitamins B1, B6 and vitamin E. As for red dates can be used for replenishing blood and boosting energy.

Yesterday morning, I have tasted the porridge. Erm...the first taste was some sweetness from the chinese dates and chicken breast meat, but as I tasted a little more depth, I got the taste of bitterness. I think I might be putting too many of them.

Anyway, I am lucky that Sarah do like it. Therefore I will be cooking the same porridge for another 3 days.

Caroline - The qty of red dates in the pic, is actually for display only. In actual, I only put 5 to 6 biji.

Joanne,

Sarah also ate the chicken breast meat too??

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Hai Doreen,
Yes, coz the meat is all mixed in the porridge, so I m lazy to separate it. So Sarah ate the meat too.
