Vegetable Soup with Wood Ear Fungus and Chinese Wolfberries
Carmela Lee, Registered Dietitian (UK); Education Sub-committee of Hong Kong Nutritional Association, said "A wide variety of ingredients not only add colors to the soup; they also create different textures for the palate. Among the vegetables used in the recipe, potato, celery, tomato and corn are rich in potassium, which helps lower blood pressure. Eat the vegetables while you drink the soup; you'll get more dietary fibre."
