Here it comes another pumpkin dish made with the pumpkin planted by Auntie Lisa.
It is again very dry and cold these days. I will made this white fungus soup, it helps me fight cold and dryness.
Note: White fungus or snow fungus is a slight yellowish dried fungus, after soaking and cooking it will become white and almost translucent in color.
White fungus is believed to be a good immune stimulant, it fights infection, inflammation, cold and cough, studies have also found that it has anti-tumor property, could lower levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or the "bad"cholesterol). It is also believed to slow the aging process, though I am not sure if there is any scientific research supporting this!
