Snow fungus with lily bulb sweet soup 雪耳 百合 糖水


Snow fungus is known for its medicinal benefits as it helps to nourish the body, heals dry cough and clears heat in the lungs.  It can be used to make savoury or sweet soup.  To combat the current heat spell that  we are experiencing I chose to make this into a sweet soup with dried lily bulb.  This can be served warm or chilled.
