  • Snow-ear mushroom 雪耳 – one
  • Dates 紅棗 - 6
  • Lotus seeds (lien zi) 蓮子 - about 10
  • Goji-berry (gou ji zi) 枸杞子 - a handful 
  • Rice – half cup
  • Rock sugar – to taste

1.   Soak all ingredients together with plenty of water for about 30 minutes. Rinse clean and separate mushroom into pieces.

2.   Bring about 4 cups of water to boil in a pot and put in all the herbs to cook on medium high heat for 10 minutes. Rinse rice and add to the cooking. Cook until all ingredients are soft enough (about 30 minutes). Add water to the cooking if necessary and stir often to prevent burning at the bottom.
