“It’s one of the best soups for health & diet watchers. Also great for all ages!”
All the ingredients used in this soup recipe were truly nutritious. Packed with high content of nutrients, and they were delicious to taste, too.
Some nutritional facts:
Papaya, a fruit that contains not only high amount of antioxidant, but also an enzyme (papain) which helps digest protein. Snow fungus, nourishes your lungs and skin. Black-eyed beans as a kind of legumes. I did not need to highlight the rest of the familiar ingredients. Best thing, this super delicious soup was so flavourful with its natural sweetness from the papaya, we don’t need much of the seasoning here. A pinch of salt would be the limit to it.
“A soup with natural sweetness that your child would not reject.”
This soup is more for your toddler, but of course, you may cook this for yourself and the other adults, too, if you do not mind sweet tasting soup for lunch.
Yes, I cooked this for my son’s lunch meal. Son doesn’t eat much at lunch since he always on full breakfast. He likes soup, he likes fish, he likes apple. So this is the perfect soup meal for him. Healthy, balanced, natural sweetness, yet, flavorsome. Son finished whole big bowl of soup including the fish and apples as well as other ingredients in it.
“Quickest & simplest soup fix for yummiest & lightest taste”
Not sure why, but it seems more and more people are cooking this, Chayote (Pear Squash). In Chinese, we called it Fo Shou Gua 佛手瓜, while Cantonese called it the Hup Jeung Gua 合掌瓜.
Until l I watched a new TVB cooking program hosted by Ms Maria Cordero (again), I wasn’t sure how to cook this fruit, even though I saw it in the market umpteen times. Oh, it’s so simple to cook, actually!
To my (pleasant) surprise, it was soft and mild (to almost tasteless in a good way) to eat. Most of all, this low-sugar, low-caloric fruit makes a good and healthy soup. Oh yes, it’s very mild in taste and because of that, I pan-fried the chicken leg before placing them into the soup… I have made myself a simple and delicious soup recipe for this! Not just a soup, it’s a 1-dish meal where I could eat the protein (chicken), the green (Chayote) and drink the nourishing soup! Trust me, you (especially the weight watcher) will like it, too.
Not sure why this is called ‘Ah Balling’ or ‘Yah Boling’ in Singapore, but apparently this Teochew dessert soup is so popular and well liked by the people where it has become one of iconic hawker delicacies in Singapore for the past decades.
Since weather here was pretty cooling as it had been either raining or pouring, it might be good if we had some piping hot beverages or food to warm ourselves. My girl loved glutinous rice ball and she requested it when I asked her what would she prefer to have for hot dessert. The combination of ginger soup and glutinous rice balls is always her favorite, but I was thinking of a change in its soup for this time instead of making the ginger soup for the rice balls repeatedly. This famous Ah Balling just came to my mind…
