The Desperate Gourmet presents: A Simple Healthy Soup

From Singapore on footimg_5977

A simple healthy soup: 

Adjust the quantity of ingredients to suit your taste and whatever you have available. Having made this several times, each time with a slightly different (but tasty) result- my best advice for LARGE quantities would be to prepare and keep noodles or rice separately and add to heated broth before serving. Once I made a large pot of this soup with rice and stored in the fridge. After a few days my creation resembled porridge (or patching plaster). 

 Try adding thinly sliced ginger or seeded and sliced chile pepper if you get bored. 

  • Enoki mushrooms
  • Chinese broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Chives
  • Garlic
  • Packaged chicken broth (or prepared from boullion)

Thinly slice and Carmelize garlic in oil. Add water and bring to a boil again.
Add cabbage and broccoli leaves plus thin wafers of stalk. Add remainder of veg.
When boiling, turn down to simmer. Add previously cooked spiral whole wheat pasta or rice.
