Soothe your soul and boost your immunity with these easy and delicious soup recipes that incorporate Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Combining the trends of culinary medicine and seasonal eating and adding a dash of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Healing Herbal Soups is the first book of its kind to focus on boosting immunity and weathering the seasons, by a mother-daughter, Chinese-American duo. Rose and Genevieve have been making Chinese herbal soups in their kitchens all their lives. They made broths to help their bodies adapt to the seasons, and now, for the first time, they’re translating these traditional recipes—all of which have been vetted by Dr. Shiu Hon Chui, a preeminent TCM doctor, researcher, and professor—into English.
Healing Herbal Soups provides a complete herbal encyclopedia and more than fifty tasty recipes—with full-color photographs—that mix herbs with meat and vegetables to create healing broths. One of the most unique features is that every herb in the book is listed with both their English and Chinese names. Along with photos of each herb, this side-by-side identification ensures that nothing is lost in translation when readers go shopping for ingredients, whether it be in person or online.
These easy-to-follow recipes are here for you whenever you feel unwell, or if you’re just looking to add healthy soups to your weekly meal rotation. Armed with an introduction to TCM and special sections on tea, ginger, and ginseng, at last you can stop using Western concoctions of drugs and chemicals and start using traditional Chinese herbs right in the comfort of your home.
