Last night, the cactus flowers quietly blossomed. They are such beautiful dedicate wonders, with flowers only blooming for one precious night.
I harvested 3 flowers, just enough to make a soup for two.
I gently washed and sliced the flowers into quarters. I dropped the flowers into a saucepan of water with thinly sliced chicken breast; brought it to a boil, added a dash of sesame oil, a dash of dark soy sauce and a few pinches of white pepper. The soup was done in 3 minutes.
And here it is, a simple soup to show my appreciation of these natural beauties.
