Watercress soup



Watercress is well-known for its high nutritional values and you can read more about it here. Fortunately for me, I've always loved watercress soup and hence, it is a soup that makes its way to my dining table every now and then.


Watercress soup

Ingredients:
  • 1 bunch of watercress
  • 250g pork ribs
  • 3 chicken breast bones
  • 1 handful red dates (rinse)
  • 1 soup pot of water
  • Fish sauce/ salt to taste
Method:
  1. Wash watercress thoroughly as leafy veggies tend to trap a lot of dirt.
  2. Blanch pork ribs and chicken bones.
  3. Add all the ingredients except the condiments to the soup pot and bring the soup to a boil.
  4. Simmer for 2 hours on low-medium heat.
  5. Add fish sauce/ salt to taste.
If you prefer the watercress to be green and crunchy, you may want to reserve half the bunch of watercress for adding into the soup about 15min before serving.


Alicia loves this soup and she eats the watercress too!

For toddler's consumption:

  • Make sure that you cut the watercress to a suitable size for the tot before serving to prevent choking.
