6 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 dozen sections of -- garlic shoots or
1 dozen scallion cut into 1/8-inch -- sections
1/2 ounce finely chopped -- ginseng root
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon salt

Preparation / Directions:

Ran across these three short recipes utilizing ginseng. Thought someone into herbs and/or Chinese medicinal cooking might find them interesting. Note the measurement for "a heaping tablespoon vegetable oil" in the last recipe. Ginseng must be pretty miraculous stuff if you can heap tablespoons of oil... Put seasonings in a bowl and pour the boiling water into it. This is a good drinking soup that goes well with a heavy dinner.
