Potato Soup



I cooked this soup with the slow cooker last night then transferred it to my soup pot and boiled it on high heat for another 30-45min. I still like to cook my soup on the stovetop on high heat because it makes the soup become more full-bodied and the chicken bones when boiled on high heat lend a milky taste to the soup - my favourite!


Potato Soup

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

Ingredients:
  • 3 relatively small potatoes (skinned and cut into quarters)
  • 1 dried cuttlefish (Toast for a few min before adding it to the soup) - alternatively, use dried shrimps if you don't like the soup to be too 'fishy'
  • 1 dried scallop (place in a soup bag)
  • 1 chicken carcass
  • 250g pork ribs
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 soup pot water
  • salt to taste

Method:
  1. Blanch the pork ribs and chicken carcass.
  2. Put all the ingredients into the slow cooker and cook 1hour on high then on auto mode for 6-8hrs.
  3. Transfer the soup and ingredients into a soup pot (if your slow cooker cannot be used on the stovetop) and boil on high heat for 30-45min. (You should be able to see the soup turn from a clear soup to a 'milky' one)
  4. Sieve the soup. Place the scallop and potatoes back into the soup.
  5. Add salt to taste.

For toddler's consumption:
  • Cut the potato into small pieces or allow the tot to bite off from the adult's portion.
