Thai Lao Bamboo Soup

Soup Recipe: Bamboo Soup
2 cups yanang extract
2 cups bamboo
1 cup chopped mushrooms
15 to 20 quail eggs hard boiled
2 tablespoons chopped lemongrass
2 tablespoons chopped shallots
2 tablespoons sticky rice
4 chilies
2 tablespoons salted gourami fish or 3 tablespoons fish sauce

Boil bamboo for 30 minutes. Drain water and chop bamboo. Soak sticky rice in water for 30 minutes. Drain water and add sticky rice in mortar with chilies. Pound with pestle until rice is a thick paste. Remove the sticky rice thickening paste and reserve. Add lemongrass and shallots in the mortar and pound with pestle until they are crushed into small pieces. In a pot over high heat, add chopped bamboo, yanang extract, mushrooms, and crushed lemongrass and shallots. Bring to boil. Add salted gourami fish, sticky rice thickening paste, and quail eggs. Cook for 15 minutes or until rice cooks. Stir pot often to prevent rice from burning at bottom of pot.

As an option, add 1/2 of chopped squash, as seen in the squash and custard video.
