Szechuan Vegetable Soup with Dried Scallop and Spare Ribs

“Time to put on your appron! A simple and yummy soup tonight, please.”

Today, my colleagues and I had a “secret slimming soup” topic over lunch. She wanted to get some ingredients to cook a soup meal for herself tonight.

I was curious, and asked to know more… Well, the vegetables ingredients mentioned such as cabbage, carrot, green pepper (capsicum), pasley, and etc, are colourful combination and each vegetable is nutritious, but… hey, I really cannot imagine what taste would the soup be, seriously.. It’s kinda taste weird to me huh.

My colleague also told us that it supposed to be a series of soup meal that one has to follow through in order to lost weight… Weight loss?

A tasty and nutritious dish which one would like it even if he/ she doesn’t take any green as the taste of the ham and prawn was over-powering enough to cover up the greens. More
