This is my first time using bamboo mushroom for cooking, was rather curious with the taste therefore decide to give this soup a try. All of us love this pot of rich earthy flavoured chicken soup! Besides using this bamboo mushroom in soup, it is also suitable stir-frying dishes which I try attempt next :)
