This is a homey soup where I can clear off the little bits of ingredients that are hibernating in the fridge. Although simple, easy to cook, this soup is nevertheless tasty served with rice and other dishes. With this soup, I can clear off a few leaves of preserved salt vegetables, remaining tablespoon of hydrated Taiwanese seaweeds and a small piece of pork fillet.
It may not be a special soup but you can use the idea to clear the little bits of edible ingredients which can be quite a waste to throw or left to take up the precious storage space in the fridge. You can also add in a piece of tofu to this soup.
