Soupy Story

How many of you guys like soup, especially during the chilly weather? Well, I love slurping soup down my throat, feeling the warmth at my stomach. That reminds me of my home and mummy's dish too. Such a relief and reminiscence you can get when you are oversea. So, this week is about SOUP. In case you miss out on the previous weeks' recipe, you can check it out here

Day 1

Bak Kut Teh / Pork Ribs Soup 

- Pork ribs
- Fried tofu puff
- Enoki mushroom

- Dark Soy Sauce 
- Soy Sauce
- Garlic 
- Bak Kut Teh Herbal Soup Pack

Zucchini, Leek, Potato and Carrot Soup 

- Zucchini
- Leek
- Carrot
- Potato
- Vegetable or chicken stock
- Butter

Recipe here.

Note: You can add some variation to the soup, such as bacon and celery. For healthier option, omit the addition of cream into the soup. Blend the soup to get the puree and add a tablespoon of Greek yogurt instead.

Day 3 

Carrot and Leek Soup 

- Carrot
- Leek
- Vegetable/Chicken stock
- Butter

Recipe here.

Note: Use the stalk part of leek instead of the leaf as the leaf might be hard and affect the colour of the soup. Leek can be a good substitute to onion as both enhance the flavour of the dishes.
