When my daughter saw Asparagus and Seafood Soup on my blog, cooked by LeQuan at luvtoeat (my recent guest blogger), she said, “Oh, that looks really delicious. I want it!” I knew I am in trouble…haha. She never gives up. I asked her to cook for me…with my sweetest request. The days passed but there was no soup for me. Well, when our children want healthy food, we as mothers always lose the game, no matter how old they are. I lost. I cooked while she smiles away!
This is really a very easy soup to cook. LeQuan cooked a smiley soup. I think some of you didn’t notice the BIG smile in the soup. She cooked the healthy, delicious soup based on my blog title, ‘Keep Learning Keep Smiling’. She is just SO creative! I thought I will add onto the smile and happiness by making a ‘flower’ soup…..*smiling*. Making this soup is just so fun! I’m sure kids would love making different patterns and enjoy eating it.
Being a great prawns and shrimps lover, I was just too happy to find jumbo cooked king prawns…..mmmm…delicious. They are bigger than those that I used for King Prawns And Herbs Fried Rice. Now I wonder whether I will find SUPER jumbo king prawns. I will surely go for it if there are. I love asparagus so I bought a bunch of big, fat asparagus. They are so tender and delicious. I wanted to add tomatoes but stopped by my children. Only used one for the centre as garnishing. The tomatoes ended up in my big bowl of salad.
There’s really no fixed recipes to follow. A recipe guideline is given in the link above, Asparagus and Seafood Soup. I followed that. The soup is really easy, healthy and delicious. I had 10 big prawns in my soup….yeah…so happy. My soup is only made up of chicken soup, prawns, eggs, asparagus and tomato (to garnish).
Today is the second day of Chinese New Year, The Year of the Rabbit. This soup would be perfect for any new year meals. The rabbit face always looks very happy, so LeQuan’s smiley soup would be just perfect! A blooming flower shows love and fruitfulness, so it’s perfect for new year too.
