Fresh cactus flower soup 曇花汤

Fresh cactus flower soup, with chicken 曇花汤

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.
