This is basically vegetables and water, but to think that a combination of the right vegetables can be so tasty! You really don’t need to add any additives such as salt, sugar or meat because it really is delicious as it is. Consider using a variety of vegetables as well, such as red beets (which I will try as a recommendation from a friend), potatoes, yams, Chinese yams and more. This soup is ideal for any age group, condition and individual!
Soup Name: Chayotes, Chestnuts and Longan Vegetable Soup
Traditional Chinese Name: 合掌瓜栗子素湯 (hup jeung gwa lì zi sù tāng)
This naturally sweet soup is rich in flavors and oil free. It’s a refreshing soup to drink in the summer and can be served chilled as it’s really quick and easy to make. I really like that it’s meat free because you can taste the chestnuts, the longans and all the vegetables. You can add various vegetables such as onions, green radish or tomatoes.
A quick boil soup that is easy to make while stimulating the senses. The salted egg really brings lots of flavor to this otherwise slightly bitter soup. It’s distinct taste is refreshing and this soup is great in removing heatiness and cooling the body.
