It’s time for soup again. Went to the Chinese shop and was really glad to find winter melon. Miss winter melon soup. I bought a piece of the winter melon and a pack of free range chicken legs. It’s really easy to cook this soup. It tastes very good and nutritious too.
Winter melon soup is a popular Chinese soup. My mom used to tell us that winter melon is cooling and refreshing to our bodies. Preserved winter melon strips are also very popular for making drinks or desserts. Well, here’s how I cooked this soup:
600g winter melon (peel and cut)
2 whole chicken legs
1 whole garlic (peel)
1 big onion (peel and cut)
a few slices of ginger
1/2C dried longan
a few Chinese mushrooms (soak)
Ingredients B (seasoning)
light soya sauce
Put everything into a pot. Add in water and let it boil. Remove the froth and lower the fire. Let it cook for about 45 minutes to an hour. Season it with salt, pepper and light soya sauce to taste. This is very delicious. I am happy just to have this with some rice.
