Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 190 C.
  2. Slice the vegetables, place some of the carrot on the bottom of a small roasting pan, this is done to keep the hen above the bottom of the pan.
  3. Remove the giblets and rinse the hens, shake off the excess water. Generously salt and pepper the hens, inside and out. Stuff the hens with a slice or two of the carrot, daikon, and an onion quarter, trimming each piece so nothing is sticking out of the birds to much.
  4. Place the stuffed hens on top of the carrots, any remaining vegetables, spread them around between the hens. Pour the melted butter over the birds.
  5. Roast for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, occasionally spooning some of the liquid in the pan over the birds or until golden brown. Internal temp, just like a chicken should be 82 C / 180 F at the thickest part without touching bone.
  6. Serve.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this until I see Cornish game hens again in the store. I will say fair value for now.

Just a common roasting method for poultry.

This sounds very good, for this soup, you will need at least a 2 liter rice cooker as it is written, or reduce quantities to use a smaller rice cooker. A basic cook/warm rice cooker is perfect. I have never seen Goji Berries (Wolfberries) but then again I never looked for them. For the dried scallops, I listed that as optional as I have never seen those either.

Instructions
  1. Add some water (not the 1 liter stated in the ingredients) to the rice cooker pot, set to Cook. When the water boils, add chicken for 5-8 minutes with the rice cooker covered, remove the blanched chicken and set aside and discard the the water.
  2. Now add the 1 liter of water to the rice cooker pot. Cover and set to Cook. When the water boils, add chicken, daikon, mushrooms, dried scallops and ginger. Cover the rice cooker and return to a boil. Leave the soup in the Cook mode for about 45 minutes.
  3. Switch the rice cooker to Warm and allow to simmer for at least another 1 to 2 hours. 15 to 30 minutes before serving the soup, add the soaked Goji berries. Add salt to taste.
Recipe Notes

Chicken thighs will cost about 37 Baht/500 grams, and you will bone them and chop. For 2 servings this is about 54 cents per serving.

Instructions
  1. This is the spice packet used, Lobo brand. Even the Thais know Lobo is the best brand for soup and spice mixes. Inside of the packet is a cloth bag, that contains the spices, the bag is simply placed in the water and removed before you serve.
  2. Rinse and cut ribs into 1 bone sections.
  3. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil in a pot, when it is boiling, add the spice bag from the packet to the water and add the ribs. Boil for 5 minutes then reduce to a simmer and cook for 45 minutes or until the meat is tender. If adding radish, when the meat is tender, add the sliced radish and simmer for 15 minutes more. Discard the spice bag.
  4. Serve with rice on the side.
  5. Or place rice in a bowl and spoon the soup over the rice, this is my preferred method.
Recipe Notes

The Lobo brand spice packet for this costs 17 Baht and the pork ribs is about 115 Baht/kilo. For 3 servings, this is about $1.30 per serving.

Variants: 1. Lamb, beef, and ox tail can be used instead of pork. Simply 1/2 cup more water and simmer for 2 hours. 2. Daikon can be replaced with carrot or used together. 3. Add hard boiled chicken or quail eggs.
