This herbal soup recipe was shared by a Chinese chef on TV cook show.  The actual portion of ingredients were not specifically given but I managed to jot down while watching it.
It is a tasty herbal soup suitable for cold season.  Tian Ma is said to be good for the brain and energise the body, while the sok tei is beneficial for kidney.  The other ingredients like fresh cordyceps and gingko nuts each has its own nutritional benefits.
1 large piece Tian Ma
1 piece dong quai
1 piece sok tei
1 tbsp Goji seeds
a handful of fresh cordyceps [optional]
6-7 red dates
a few slices of ginger
300 gm meaty pork ribs - washed and blanched
a handul of Gingko nuts - optional
800 ml water
1 tbsp each wine and light soy sauce
1/4 tsp salt to taste
  1. Rinse the herbs well.  Bring water to boil is a soup pot for 10 minutes, add in blanched meaty ribs.  Bring to boil for 20 minutes or until ribs are almost tender.
  2. Add in dates and Goji seeds and continue to cook for a further 10 minutes.
  3. Serve hot.

Hi Phong Hong, these fresh cordyceps are crunchy even after long simmering. Not too bad.
