Recipe – “Lemongrass Ginger Tea”

“Lemongrass Ginger Tea”

“Drink to your health” By Anita Hirsch, M.S., R.D.

 1 inch of fresh lemongrass, thinly sliced, or 1 teaspoon dried lemongrass

 1 piece of crystallized ginger, about 1 inch square

 1 cup boiling water

Place the sliced lemongrass in a cup.  Cut the ginger into smaller pieces and add to the cup.  Pour the boiling water over both and steep for 5 minutes.  (If you’re using dried lemongrass, steep a bit longer, up to 15 minutes, to extract the most flavors).  Strain and serve.

Makes one cup.
