Sunday Dessert: Sweet Taro with Snow fungus and Gingko. ๐Ÿ˜‹โค๏ธ๐ŸŒบ

Hello everyone, hope you have a peaceful Sunday night and a great week ahead! ๐Ÿค—

I had late lunch with my friend so I decided to make Sunday Dessert ๐Ÿ˜‹

Main ingredients: Taro, snow fungus (picture) and Gingko nuts with rock sugar. It is healthy and fulfilling as my Dessert/Dinner. Snow fungus is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Gingko nuts are very good for memory/brain health.

As always, be inspired, be joyful, take a picture and Enjoy it! ๐Ÿ˜‹โค๏ธ

Good stuff Koko! My mom makes makes this often but I never knew the name haha. It's a sweet dessert for whenever. And it's good for inflammation

Awe thank you Kainan. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Š

I learned this from my mom too. Did your mom make the same way I did? ๐Ÿ˜

yeah she put some dates in there and sweeten it with crystal sugar

Yes the dried dark dates very good too but I have none here. ๐Ÿ˜‚

You practically can add anything you want in there ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ I sometimes like lotus seeds too ๐Ÿ˜‹

Identical to what my wife makes ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š

Oh yayyyyy ๐Ÿค— You know exactly what it is ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

And how delicious it is..๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

Yes Happyman4, you know how enjoyable I am right now. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Happy tummy! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

I sometimes make chips or crisps with taro root, my kids love them. For me I love a Greek dish using taro root, meat, green beans in a tomato and celery casserole. As it happens I have all the ingredients at home. ๐Ÿ™‚

Very interesting Happyman4, I hope you will make this Greek dish one day and post for us to see how it turns out. I love the ingredients you mentioned ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

so what is snow fungus I have never heard of it before? Does it act as a probiotic or something like that ? how can crystal sugar be healthy? Also Isaw online that eating too much Ginkgo nuts can cause allergic reaction to the skin

My GP gave me a warning the other week about skin reaction if people eat too much gluten, so I imagine it's a risk with most things if we overdo them :) Everything in moderation, as they say!

Is rock sugar the same as crystal sugar Hiba? And do we have an equivalent in the UK? I've never heard of either of these ๐Ÿค—

Thank you Zazen. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™ Yes it sure is tasty and healthy but too much dessert will be the end of Koko ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ I have this once in a while. You have a great week ahead as well! ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒžโ˜ฎ๏ธ๐ŸŒบ

Hello Koko Iโ€™ve never heard of snow fungus so your meal intrigues me as itโ€™s interesting to be introduced to new healthy foods.

Iโ€™m sure that you and friend enjoyed lunch so nice one. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thank you Jerry. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™

We incorporate snow fungus in many of our traditional cooking like soup, salad and pan seared veggies too. ๐Ÿ˜‹

We had great time at the animal shelter and lunch afterwards ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

Have a great week ahead Jerry! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒžโ˜ฎ๏ธ๐ŸŒบ

This is looking really good! I am not used to having desserts like these since my tradition only implies different cakes or biscuits, but trying exotic fruits would be something new for me. My wife keeps looking on chopnotch.com/ for different recipes and I am helping her every time that she tries to cook something. In my opinion, cooking together is another form of bonding that all couples should experience. And everything is fun and the cooking time is even shorter if there is someone to help you out.

Thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ™
