“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.
