tcm slow cooked cordyceps militaris chicken soup recipe

Cordyceps Militaris ( 蟲草花 ), also known as Cultivated Cordyceps or Cordyceps Flower, is an edible fruiting body which is cultivated from the fungus species Cordyceps Sinensis.

For those who are into Chinese tonics, Cordyceps ( 冬虫草) are known to be an extremely expensive herb due to their TCM properties to help replenish one’s energy, improve respiratory health and stamina, as well as fortify the body’s immune system.

In recent years, the popularity of Cordyceps Militaris ( 蟲草花 ) grew rapidly due to their affordable prices as compared to Cordyceps. I have tried different versions of Chinese soups in restaurants using this herb which is known to support healthy lungs and kidney. I love the mushroomy texture which is completely different from Cordyceps. The latest makan session I had with my girlfriend at The Good Trio ( 三人行 ) got me really intrigued and I was really game to try making this at home.

I found this packet of Cordyceps Militaris in a Chinese Medical Hall located in Yew Tee Square. They named it as Cordyceps Stroma although the Chinese name is also 蟲草花. They are selling it at SGD 12 for 37.5g, but you kinda save a bit if you purchase two packets.

Using similar ingredients from the soup I tasted at The Good Trio, out come my version of the Tasty Slow-Cooked Cordyceps Militaris Chicken Soup ( 蟲草花鸡汤 ). This will definitely add to my family’s list of favourite soups!

Well, I also found HockHua Tonic (福華補品) selling the Cordyceps Militaris recently but at a much cheaper price; just SGD 13 for 100g. In fact, they have another version with a much lower price but I was told that this is of better quality. Have you tried cooking with this herb?
