From chicken feet broth to enhance our Lung function giving us beautiful skin to fish head soup now to produce breast milk!!! Before you say you would never try please give it a go as you may surprise yourself. If you are going to introduce children to it, you must start early as I know so many parents who say, my child(ren) will never eat that. With my children it is simple, they eat what I put in front of them or they starve.
So to increase lactation, nourish the skin and invigorate your Qi (energy) with this yummylicious nourishing traditional soup. It is extremely rich in carotenoids, antioxidants and vitamin C with sweet flavour, it is ideal for children and babies as well as new mothers. Peanut, papaya, fish and ginger are used specifically for their energetic properties, feel free to sub for a different nut if you are allergic to peanuts. Depending on your needs, you can have it anywhere from 1-7times a week. The more the better. Boil one cup of peanuts in 8 cups filtered water until soft, usually about 40 minutes to 1 hour.
Pan fry the fish head in a bit of neutral oil with strips of ginger until brown. Though this recipe is best with fish head, you can use any fish cut with skin on. Make sure to strain the fish properly to remove any bones.
Add the peanuts and water boiled into the fish. You might need to add more boiling water, make sure enough to cover papaya.
Cut one large papaya, add it into the pot and boil for about 20 more minutes.
Strain fish and eat it as soup with papaya and peanuts.
