In this issue, we have Beancurd Skin with Ginkgo Nut Barley. It has the functions of whitening, relieving heat, and removing dampness. I just saw the processed ginkgo nuts in the supermarket that day, and I thought that I hadn’t eaten this sweet soup for a long time.
I use large barley also called Chinese barley. Its nutritional value and efficacy are relatively high, but it is not so easy to cook through. So I soaked the barley in water for one night in advance. And you can see that its color is browner because I used a dry pan to fry it. For friends like me when the spleen and stomach are deficient and cold. You can fry the barley, then you will not be afraid of stomach discomfort.
Ginkgo is the seed of Ginkgo biloba, which has high nutritional value. However, its germ is slightly toxic, and eating too much will cause physical discomfort. Although it is more troublesome to remove the cores one by one, the most important thing is to eat with peace of mind.
When buying Beancurd skin, make sure that it is for cooking sweet soup, otherwise, the taste and texture may be different. Personally, I like a stronger soy flavor, so I add extra soy milk.
