Radish Soup


I know I know. The photo's badly taken. But I didn't notice it when I took it and I only have this one photo of it. So heck... what to do? Just make do for now :D

The taste of the soup however is a far cry from how it looks in the photo. It's wonderfully full-bodied and rich and it was simply delish. Hubby LOVED it!


Radish soup

*Skip the dried scallop and dried cuttlefish for tots below 18mths*

Ingredients
  • 1 radish (skinned, chopped into chunks)
  • 3 chicken breast bones
  • 250g pork ribs
  • 1 dried cuttlefish
  • 1 dried scallop (placed in small soup bag)
  • 1 soup pot water
  • salt to taste

Method:

  1. Rinse the dried cuttlefish then toast it in the oven for about 4min.
  2. Wash and blanch the chicken bones and pork ribs.
  3. Add all the ingredients to a soup pot of water (except the radish) and bring to a boil.
  4. Simmer the soup for a few hours. (If you notice after a couple of hours of simmering the soup that the soup base is still quite dilute, boil the soup on high heat for awhile till you notice the soup base becoming more concentrated - I do this when I don't have enough time to simmer the soup for many hours.)
  5. Add the radish about 1-2hrs before serving (don't add it too early or it will be too soft).
  6. Sieve the soup - remove the chicken bones and dried cuttlefish (I personally don't eat this). Return the pork ribs, radish and scallop (take out of the soup bag) to the soup.
  7. Add salt to taste.
  8. Serve hot.


For toddler's consumption:
  • You can cut the radish into smaller pieces or allow the tot to bite off from the adult's portion.
