Lotus Root and Peanut Soup

Another appetising, nutritious soup recipe, rich in fibre and suitable for the whole family shared by Agnes Chan in her book 'Let's Eat'.  I used pork ribs instead of chicken for this soup.
The soup is very tasty and not oily at all eventhough pork ribs are used.
Ingredients - modified
[serves 3-4]
350 gm soft bone pork ribs - bite size pieces
30 gm peanuts - rinsed and soaked for 3 hours
1 cm piece da tou chai - washed and sliced - soaked for 10 minutes
1 carrot - peeled and cut bite size pieces [omit]
150 gm lotus root - washed and sliced
5 red dates
1 litre water
  1. Blanch pork ribs in boiling water for 5-10 minutes.  Drain and rinse to remove scums.
  2. Place all ingredients in a soup pot.  Bring to boil over high heat, then lower heat to simmer for 45 minutes or until the peanuts and pork ribs are tender.
  3. Taste to adjust seasoning [soup is salty enough].
  4. Dish out to serve hot with rice.

I cook this rather frequent but have never tried with 'ta tau choy'...maybe, I'll do so next time.

Hi Soke Hah, I like all the ingredients in this soup but not my hubby, too much chewing, hehehe!

Kimmy said...

Yes Amy, boiling 'hot' soup is always welcome during cold weather.

This is such a lovely soup. I have not tried boiling it with ta tau choy, must give it a try.

Kimmy said...

Hi Joyce, usually I would thought of using Szechuan chye instead of ta tau choy.

Kimmy, I love lotus root soup! But I have not tried putting peanuts in soup.

Hi Phong Hong, I like to munch on the peanuts, it's not soft but sweet and fragrant.
