Red Lingzhi Lung Nourishing Soup

Submitted by on April 25, 2010 – 2:19 pmNo Comment | 12,887 views

Soup Name: Red Lingzhi Lung Nourishing Soup

Traditional Chinese Name: 赤芝化痰潤肺湯 (Chì zhī huà tán rùn fèi tāng)

A great soup for nourishing lungs and expelling phlegm, it is ideal for people who have a cough, asthma, breathing conditions or simply want to give their lungs a boost.  I find that every once in a while this soup is great for Hong Kong or city dwellers because of the infinite air pollution.

What Ingredients are required?

1 pound of fresh pork shank
4-5 large dried dates
5-6 slices of dried red lingzhi
5 pieces of dried hawthorn
1 palm solomon’s seal (dried)
5 pieces of lucid asparagus root (dried)
15 pieces of euryale or fox nut
1 tablespoon (20 g) of black glutinous rice
1 tablespoon (5 g) of malt
50 g black eye beans
1 dried tangerine peel

1 teaspoon of salt (for marinating pork)
2-3 L of water

How do I prepare it?

  1. Marinate pork in salt overnight (to expel the fire in the pork)
  2. Boil your soup water
  3. In a separate pot, boil water to blanch your pork
  4. Wash and rinse all dried ingredients in warm water
  5. When your soup water boils, add all the ingredients together
  6. Boil on high heat for 30 minutes, reduce to a medium boil for another 1 hour and 45 minutes.
  7. Serve and enjoy!

Any benefits?

  • Helps with cough symptoms
  • Expels phlegm
  • Assist with nourishing and bringing moisture to lungs

Any precautions?

  • Use Chinese herbs in precaution (in minimal amounts if serving children)
