I just love corn soups!
Maybe i had a lot of this when i was growing up. There’s a strong nostalgic feeling which reminds me of home whenever I drink Chinese style clear soups. I wonder if other Cantonese are a sucker for homemade soups like myself. Happy to be one though. 🙂
Bly used our cooking aid to prepare this soup just before she goes off to work. Our cooking aid is excellent! You basically just have to boil the ingredients for 15-20 minutes before you leave it to brew for the next 5-8 hours. And the most amazing thing is, no electricity is used! Our cooking aid definitely deserve a post of its own in the next entry.
Ingredients: Corn, carrots, tomatoes, chicken, red dates, ginseng, salt.
One look at the picture and you will see the main ingredients present. Corn is the star in this soup whereas the tomatoes and carrots play a supporting role by helping to enhance the sweetness.
