Light Chinese Daikon Soup

The old Chinese proverb says, “As soon as farmers bring the daikon to the market, doctors are losing their jobs.”

You will need:

1 small daikon radish
a small piece of grated ginger
approximately one tablespoon of dried tangerine peel
three-quarters of a litre of water or vegetable stock
salt, spring onion, coriander, parsley, pepper, sesame oil, rice vinegar


Cut daikon into cubes, and together with ginger and tangerine peel put into the pot. Sauté the mixture in a drop of sesame oil and then pour it over with water or with a broth. Cover with a lid and cook for about 30 minutes until the radish becomes soft. Season the soup with salt and pepper and serve with a few drops of rice vinegar, garnished with herbs and spring onion.

from the TCM point of view:

This simple autumn recipe fits in dry and windy weather. It transforms the mucus in the lungs and drains excess moisture. If you suffer from a cough, you should eat a bowl of this soup at least twice a day.
