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.

Ingredients
For the Burgers
For the Tomato Garlic Jam
Servings: burgers
Instructions
  1. Peel tomatoes by slicing a small X in the base of each tomato. Place tomatoes in a pot of boiling water for 30 to 45 seconds or until skin loosens. Remove tomatoes with a slotted spoon and slip skins off when cool enough to handle. Chop tomatoes.
  2. To make tomato garlic jam, combine sugar and lime juice in a small saucepan. Warm over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Add chopped tomatoes, red bell pepper, garlic, and chili. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes or until mixture has reduced by about half. Stir in fish sauce (if using) and allow to cool to room temperature.
  3. In a large bowl, gently mix together ground beef, shiitake mushrooms, cilantro, scallions, soy sauce, Chinese 5 spice, and ginger. Form into 4 equal-size patties.
  4. Add a splash of olive oil to a non stick skillet over medium heat. Place patties in the pan. Cover and cook 4 minutes. Then flip and cook 3 to 4 more minutes. Serve burgers on buns topped with tomato garlic jam and shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix.
Recipe Notes

The beef would cost about 100 Baht/500 grams, for 4 servings, this is about 74 cents per serving.
