Ganoderma lucidum is very bitter and tough, but because reishi has unsurpassed medicinal benefits, it is worth considering these two original Chinese recipes.
- 10 g reishi pieces, sliced
- 6 whole quails, frozen or fresh
- 70 g dry scallops
- 100 g pork, lean 3 pints (1.5 liter) hot water
- Salt and pepper (to taste)
- Dash cooking wine
Soak the sliced reishi pieces in 3 pints of water for 4 hours. Remove the quails from boiling water after 5 seconds and put in a Chinese steam pot. Pour in the 3 pints of water together with the reishi pieces. Add dry scallops, pork, and a dash of cooking wine. Steam boil for 3 hours. Before use, season the soup with salt and pepper, according to taste.
Note: You can add dried long-gang meat or dry red dates to sweeten the soup. You can also substitute 2 frozen whole pigeons, a whole chicken, or half a turtle instead of the 6 quails for the above recipe.
