Double boiled Dong Quai Egg dessert soup 当归冰糖炖蛋

This double boiled Dong Quai egg dessert soup was my childhood favourite dessert soup. My mother always told my sisters and I how good of this herbal soup benefit to us, Dong Quai 当归 is like female ginseng.

My mother taught me to use the head of Dong Quai 当归头 when double boil this dessert soup, better than use the body of Dong Quai.

You have to crack the egg shell a bit, a bit tricky this step ! This egg actually also over cracked..

I use slow cooker to cook double boil method, so don't need to monitor the heat.

Love the strong Dong Guai aroma and nice smell from the soup, and the egg also taste so yummy especially the yolk (egg white a bit rubbery) !

Learn this recipe, then you can cook for your mother, sister,daughter, yourself or maybe girl friend ^_^
