You may find wolfberry and pine nuts in the “Chinese section” even at ordinary supermarkets. I couldn’t find dried jujube at a nearby supermarket, but I could find it in the seasoning section of a department store.

Even if you cook the Samgyetang -style porridge soup, even when you are tired or have no appetite, it still tastes good. As you eat, you can feel that your body gets warmer and warmer.

I’ve made “Samgyetang-style soup” many times as a popular dish at home, but this time, I made it with dried jujube, wolfberry, and pine nuts for the first time.

Jujube has been eaten as a medicinal food in China for quite some time. We can expect to have effects such as nourishing tonic, anti-aging, mental stability, prevention of insomnia, beauty effect, anti-allergy, and anti-cancer effect.

Its nutritional components include dietary fiber, B vitamins, potassium folic acid, iron, phosphorus, and calcium.

Wolfberry is a red fruit placed on Chinese-style almond jelly. It is said to be the fruit of immortality and longevity in China.

Its nutrients include vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin C, carotenoid zeaxanthin, amino acid betaine, and polyphenols, which are extremely rich in nutrients.

Pine nuts have long been used in Chinese herbs and medicinal herbs because they have the effect of warming the body. In recent years, it seems its demand for healthy food is increasing, such as having succeeded in dieting by eating it instead of snacks.

It is said to be effective in preventing and improving lifestyle-related diseases by preventing blood from becoming thick. Also, the function of B vitamins is effective in improving skin beautification and eye strain.

The delicious soup made from chicken served as a soup stock, and the soup is actually delicious enough only with the white onion, ginger, and garlic, but when adding wolfberry, pine nuts, and dried jujube, it quickly turned into a “luxury porridge.”

Adding a little more glutinous rice (or white rice) will make it thicker and more delicious.
