Last week was my first attempt to cook white radish soup, a simple recipe soup with simple and easy to get ingredients. Bring all the ingredients to a pot of water and cook at least 3 to 4 hours.
2 white radish
600g spare ribs
3-5 dried oysters
2-3 dried scallops
The leaves, can be cook as well, don't throw it way
The kids like the soup, and so do the adults. But do you know white radish tends to stink up the whole kitchen when it is simmering, smelled like a very bad gas...
The white radish is also good for clearing heat because of its cold nature. As such, is it not recommended to cook this soup for the family if someone is having cough or flu, I think.
And if you are on medication or taking herbal tonics or, you certainly need to avoid to drink this soup as white radish neutralizes the efficacy of your tonics. It would be plain wasted. I heard before that if you happen to eat bird nest soup, remember to avoid taking any white radish on the same day.
My next attempt is going to be peanut lotus root soup. Have to ask my mum how to choose nice lotus root :)
Oh ya, forgot to mention, Yan Yan totally dislike watercress and honey dates soup :( Happen that the other day my sister cook this soup and we let Yan Yan to try it. She said :" Yucksssssss!''
