Wonton Soup (馄饨汤)

“Scrumptious wonton soup, good for an enjoyable meal, perfect for warming the heart of your loved ones! Check out my recipe and tips to make and cook good wonton soup!”

Wonton is a word transcribed from Cantonese. In mandarin, we called it 馄饨 (pronounced as “hoon toon”). It simple means irregularly shaped dumpling. The other more simplified name is 云吞 (pronounced as “yun toon”), which direct translated as cloud swallow. Either way, they all mean tiny dumplings!

I like to make wonton as it is simple and much likeable by my little one as it looks like cute tiny balls in the bowl. More

Salted Vegetable and Tofu Soup (咸菜豆腐排骨汤)

“Come, have a bowl of this delicate Salted Vegetable, tofu and prime ribs soup!”

Previously, I cooked this salted vegetable tofu soup with roasted duck meat. Taste was more intensive than this prime ribs version as the ribs were not roasted/ baked, but merely blanched and boiled together with the salted vegetable in soup. I did not even add tomato this time. More

Express Chicken Soup with White Fungus and Button Mushrooms

“Express Chicken Soup with Chinese Herbal Spices from Seah’s, to keep your loved ones at their best at all time!”

Some might find Chinese soup too bland for the palate. Its taste has been described as drinking “plain water”, as Chinese soup is always cooked watery (not in thick consistency), and it does not taste creamy.

Black Chicken Soup Recipe (滋补乌鸡汤)

“How about having a bowl of steamy hot nutritious Silkie (black chicken) tonic soup for tonight’s dinner?”

Silkie, or another name which is more commonly known as, black chicken. Black chicken is often used to cook in soup with Chinese herbs as it claims to be more nutritious (higer in dietary minerals) and less fat content. Silkie is whole black from its skin to even the bones. The meat is more greyish colour. Basically, beside the colour and invisible high values of nutrients, the taste and texture of meat has no much difference, to me. However, some say that the meat is not just leaner, but also softer.

Meat Slices and Carrot Broth (肉片汤)

“Quick delicious meat broth ready to serve within 30 minutes.”

This meat broth is my favourite as I liked soup with loads of peppery taste. I had the soup with amount of ground white pepper adjusted to my liking. Not too spicy, yet, strong and intensive peppery flavour. I think I have used almost 1 tablespoon of pepper (to be precise, I used amount of 8 ‘shakes’ of pepper bottle). More

Duck Soup with Salted Vegetable & Tofu (咸菜豆腐鸭汤)

“Flavoursome duck soup that helps to reduce body ‘heatiness’.”

Salted vegetable soup is what Chinese believed to help reducing feverish body or ‘body heat’ (降火). Moreover, salted vegetable and tofu soup is my favourite. I loved having the combination cooked with duck meat. More

Chinese ABC Soup with Fresh Chinese Yam Root (Huai Shan) and Dried Anchovies

“Flavourful and healthy clear vegetable soup which you have to cook it for your family. Trust me, it’s much likeable by everyone!”

There is’t special for cooking Chinese ABC vegetables soup (assorted vegetable soup) with pork ribs. But I just learnt a different way to cook it more delightful!

Maybe not to you, but it was new to me.
My friend cooked the ABC vegetables soup with dried anchovies (dried ikan bilis 江鱼仔)!
I thought the taste of dried achovies would not complement the vegetables in soup, but it does, indeed. More
