Maggi and Yu Ren Sheng has came out with this new herbal soup concentrate. Being a herbal soup lover, I needa try it out to see if it's good enough. So I hooted a bottle of it from Shop n Save, and boiled it according to instructions.
Yang Sheng Le American Ginseng flavour.
The bottle of concentrate, a packet of wolf berries and manual.
Other than the bottle of concentrate, you will need 600g of chicken.
Sad to say, I only managed to get around 300g of chicken...
The instructions says 1L of water.
Pour the water into my induction cooker and boil it.
Meanwhile I opened the bottle of concentrate. Looks pasty inside.
Water reached boiling point and the concentrate is added.
the instruction states that I should simmer it for 20minutes, but I simmered for 30minutes instead.
Scooping a bowl out from the pot.
Verdict: The flavour is rich enough, but does not taste exactly like American Ginseng. This is perhaps due to the herbs and type of Ginseng they added into their concentrate. It's nice to drink, but you will get sick of it if you drink the 1L in one shot. The aroma could be better, I think I should add more chicken and pre-simmer the chicken to extract it's taste into the soup. Otherwise canned or power chicken stock would do as well. I have not tried the other flavours yet. Considering it's price (including the chicken), I could have drank 2 bowls of herbal soup from my neighbouring coffee shop that was certified by some Channel U food show. One bowl of soup from that stall would easily be around 500ml (soup plus ingredient) and they taste heavenly, far fetch from this Yang Sheng Le soup. I think this soup concentrate would be good in the hands of those with intermediate cooking skills, who can add more ingredients to enhance it's flavour, in turn making this a quick dish to prepare at home.
