Chinese Yam With Gingko Soup

This is a simple but exceptionally nutritious soup suited for both the young and old. This soup is naturally infused with the mild sweetness from the fresh chinese yam and the wolfberries  with a hint of yu zhu taste and the unique aroma from the gingko nuts. Nourishing properties aside, the taste of this soup is just heavenly. Nothing beats a bowl of this refreshing homemade soup which is ideal especially during hot and humid summer days.
