Trans-fat Free


2 medium turnip
2 small carrots
4 each scallions, spring or green onions
3 each asparagus
fresh spears
½ cup mushrooms
½ cup mushrooms
straw, peeled
8 each corn
baby sweet
8 each water chestnuts
½ teaspoon ginger root
fresh, grated
1 tablespoon salt-free seasoning
2 tablespoons peanut oil
2 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
1 pinch sugar
1 x cornstarch
1 tablespoon schmaltz (chicken fat)
½ cup crab meat
or shelled shrimp (optional)


Preparation: Peel turnips & carrots. Use melon scoop to cut turnips into large balls. Slice carrots ½ inch thick; then with paring knife, cut 4 evenly spaced notches into rim of each slice (don't cut into center core). Carrots should look like little flowers. Parboil turnip & carrots in stock until barely tender. Remove from stock & plunge pieces into cold water; drain. Cut onions, asparagus & baby corn into 1½ inch pieces. Mince together fresh ginger root & vegetable seasoning.

In small pot or beaker on medium heat, render pieces of chicken fat.

Stir-frying: Add peanut oil to hot wok. When it begins to smoke, briskly fry crab meat or shrimp for 1 minute. Add asparagus, baby corn, mushrooms & water chestnuts, stir-frying until they are hot. Add ginger mixture, then onions. Stir-fry another 30 seconds. Add ½ stock, salt & sugar; bring to boil. Add turnips & carrots. Cover & reduce heat; simmer for 5 minutes.

Uncover, push ingredients out of liquid, & dribble in cornstarch paste to thicken slightly. Stir liquid to prevent lumping while it thickens to a thick soup. Recombine, then mix in chicken oil. Remove to serving platter.
