Creamy Chinese cabbage soup

Creamy Chinese cabbage soup

Chinese Cabbage is a very delicious vegetable. It is very delicious however you cook it. It is one of my family’s favourite vegetables. I usually make mixed vegetables, fried with noodles or make soup with it.

It has been snowing badly for the past few days. The weather is freezing cold and everywhere is covered with thick snow. The best way to bring some cheers is more hot soup. This time I tried Creamy Chinese Cabbage Soup.

I have hardly cooked with cream but thought it would be good for a change from the usual coconut cream. I think I’m quite happy with the soup. It was a surprise to my family but everyone liked it. The mild, tangy taste from the tomatoes and clementine oranges was actually very beautiful. I really liked it. Here’s my recipe to share.

Clementines, tomatoes and coriander

Clementines, tomatoes and coriander

1 medium Chinese cabbage
1/2C water
2 tomatoes
2 clementine oranges
1 bunch of coriander leaves
1/2C double cream
2t chicken stock granules
a few dashes of pepper powder
1/4t sugar

Wash and cut the Chinese cabbage into shorter lengths and put into a pot to boil with half a cup of water. Cook until the texture you prefer. We like it soft so it takes about 10 minutes. Then add all the rest of the other ingredients. Season to taste and serve hot. We had it with plain rice.

The soup looks light yet flavourful! I want one large bowl!

No wonder Drick calls you the Soup Queen. I have never tried this soup with this combination. I have to try this in order to taste what’s really in there. Can you send this soup to me? I prefer you make it. :D

I never had clementine oranges in a soup before. This is a must try!

Jeannie  on December 23rd, 2009

Never seen clementine oranges… look beautiful. Can they be eaten like a fruit? Lovely looking soup, reminds me of a certain noodles with fishhead soup.

This would give me the sustenance I need right now! Delicious!

Trissa  on December 23rd, 2009

Oranges in a soup? Very interesting indeed Mary! You always come up with strange combinations that actually work! Merry Christmas!

Mary  on December 23rd, 2009

@Angie - Come and I’ll cook a big pot. We’ll enjoy it and forget about the cold weather :D

@Divina - Oh….Soup Queen! Hope no one call me Crazy Soup Queen….LOL. Looks like I have to dehydrate it to send to you :P

@Impromptu Diva - This is the first time I tried adding clementine oranges to my soup. It worked! I like the lovely taste and flavour.

@Jeannie - Yes, they can be eaten just like other oranges. Most of the time they are sweet but sometimes they can be quite tasteless or sour. I think it depends on the season. Oh….maybe next time I have to try it with fish head. I’m sure it will taste very delicious.

@Sarah, Maison Cupcake - Thank you for your comment. Hope you try out soon.

@Trissa - LOL….sounds quite crazy to have orange in a soup. But it actually worked :) Merry Christmas to you too.

This looks so yummy! I love that the veggie pieces are still whole. My fave soup has got to be yogurt soup or soup made with black urad dal. Love this post!

@Sanjana - Mmmm…yoghurt soup sounds new but delicious to me. I would love to try that. I remember once cooking chicken with yoghurt. It was very delicious.

@Blackswan - Thanks. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too.

@Penny - You are very right. This soup is a good change from all the Christmas eating. Maybe should even go for low fat cream :P

@Sook - It is very delicious which is surprising. You can come and join me for more soups :P

@anncoo - Wishing you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year too.

@Brie - Hope you’ll start cooking cabbage soup again soon. I love to cook this Chinese cabbage. It’s very delicious whether under cooked, just cooked or over cooked.

@Kristy - I think when the weather is so cold, any soup is most welcoming and delicious :P
