Wild Yam with Goji Berries Stir-Fry 枸杞炒山药

I made soup with Chinese wild yam (Huai Shan 淮山, also known as shan yao 山药), so I thought I'd try something different. The flavour is very mild and subtle, so the best thing is to do a simple stir-fry. As mentioned before, wild yam has loads of medicinal functions, such as promotes urination, lower blood sugar, lower blood pressure, acts as an antibiotic, has anti-aging properties and also improves digestive system. It is great for the kidney, lung and spleen. more!
