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.

Duck meat yields more intense flavour in the soup, especially roast duck. Yes, I prefered the roasted option, but for healthier purpose, I wouldn’t mind using fresh duck instead. If you like to eat the duck meat, use meaty or drumkstick part. As for me, I would usually use those boney parts, such as, duck neck, wings and feet from the whole roast duck to cook this soup since we do not eat those parts. As such, no food go to waste. So, we have the hot and flavoursome veggie duck soup to go along with our duck rice meal. :)

Roast Duck Rice Porridge

“Delicious roast duck rice thick porridge cooked with leftover duck meat”

My family likes to eat roast duck, so do I.

I always get roast whole duck from the store and packed home as dinner. Just need to cook rice and fry a dish of vegetables. That’s a complete sumptuous dinner meal for us. However, we couldn’t finish the whole duck, most of the time. Half duck portion is not enough for us and more expensive to get only half, while whole duck will be too much. However, I still go ahead to get one whole piece every time. Then, what do I do with the leftover duck? It is always a ‘motivation’ for me to get one whole duck right away, it’s the use of cooking duck porridge the following day!
