Simple Vegetarian Soup for Children

 

Soup Name: Simple Vegetable Soup for Children

Traditional Chinese Name:  簡單菜湯 (Jiǎn dān cài tāng)

Introduction:
At the last minute, I needed to stay home and make dinner – so while scrounging through my staple supplies of groceries, I found 3 simple ingredients to whip up a quick-boil Chinese soup with noodles. I say quick-boil because this soup took me about 10 minutes to prep and then boiled on medium-high heat for about 30 minutes. On top of that, we ended up eating all the contents as sides, which saved me even more time! It pays to have extras in the fridge sometimes!

Amount serves: 6 soup bowls

What Ingredients are required?

1 tablespoon of dried shredded conpoys (can use whole ones as well)
2 large fresh corn, quartered
2 large potatoes, halved
3 fresh 
tomatoes, halved
1 teaspoon of chicken powder (or half a cup of chicken stock)

2 L of water

How do I prepare it?

  1. Boil your soup water
  2. When the water boils, add all the ingredients together
  3. Boil on medium-high for 30 minutes

Any benefits?

  • This soup contains no fat
  • All natural ingredients serves as a hearty meal
  • Quick and easy soup to make
  • Excellent soup to go with noodles, macaroni, or just on its own and you can add any other vegetables you like (or happen to have in your fridge)

Any precautions?

  • Go easy on the chicken stock and powder (as it does make the soup saltier)
