Chicken Ragout!

This has consistently featured on Soup Spoon’s menu and it’s one of our favourite yummy soup whenever we visit the restaurant. We’ve always been impressed with the success of Soup Spoon. It has elevated the Singapore soup culture to a whole new level ever since it stormed into the food scene. With its consistent core menu and the occasional odd new quirky soup recipes, you just can’t get enough of Soup Spoon.

Chicken ragout is actually quite easy to recreate on your own. Hoe can do it, so can you!

Ingredients: diced potatoes, carrots, cucumber, green capsicum, onion, garlic, tomato puree, mushrooms, milk, organic chicken stock, chicken, 2 teaspoon of olive oil, salt, flour.

Even though the main star in this soup is chicken but if you look through the ingredient list above, you will find a wide range of vegetables in this soup which makes it a real healthy soup. You basically can just have this soup with rice/bread and it will be a satisfying complete meal for the day.

Hoe is a sucker for potatoes and he just enjoys biting on the potato cubes. A great alternative to enjoying potatoes besides french fries and curry chicken with potatoes. 🙂

Avocado Tomato Soup

We got some inspirations from other bloggers and decided to create our own avocado soup. Oh well, it turned out to be a disaster! 😦

A few of our Saturdays were burnt because of work. A quick resolution to an express home cooked dinner – Keep it as simple as possible.Being Acting smart, we dumped the peeled avocado and tomatoes into the blender, topped with organic chicken stock and then it went…


Please do not be deceived by the picture. The soup was unpleasantly sour, in fact, tasted quite awful. We weren’t sure if the tomatoes were rotten. Anyway, we learnt and the next time round, we’ll definitely include garlic cloves and onions to flavour the soup. It was such a turn-off on our precious Saturday night…

Spiced Carrot Soup

Another year to bid goodbye to my twenties. Well, I guess I have to confess that I’m in need of good food to fight that age! We are going organic as much as possible and stocking our fridge with vegetables and fruits. Right, we simply enjoy munching on a variety of colourful food.

We had grilled portobello mushrooms with cheddar cheese, baked salmon with brown sugar, spinach cucumber salad, corn and of course our soup!

Ingredients: Pureed Carrot, garlic, onion, apple, curry powder, milk, organic chicken stock, salt

After reading on the health benefits of garlic, we decided to use it generously in this soup. Garlic has the ability to slow down aging process and I admit this is one of the compelling reasons to why this soup is packed with these pungent bulbs. 🙂

I really love this soup and it tasted exactly like its name. I savored every sip and yes! I’ll be a loyal fan to pureed soup!

Apple Ginseng Chicken Soup

Bly made this soup for me on a weekday night. Hats off to my dear wife who’s really able to put together a good combination of ingredients for any type of soup. 🙂

Apple is one of the main ingredients in soup that i appreciate a lot as I have fond memories of the Apple soup mum made for me when I was still staying with my parents before I got married. Mushrooms and pumpkins are what we have been using for most of the past entries as the main theme. Apple and corn are actually my own favourite star ingredients and Bly was happy to put them into soup recipes and make them for my indulgence.


Ingredients: Apple, chicken, barley, red dates, shredded carrots, shredded potatoes, ginseng, salt.

Undoubtedly, apple is the soul of this clear soup which gives it a distinctive mellow sweetness. Clear soups like this are really thirst quenchers. I always have the compulsion of gulping the whole bowl of soup. However, a piping hot soup ensures I obediently prevent myself from burning my throat by using a spoon instead.

Chicken Chowder

Chicken is one of the most versatile ingredient you can use in soups. Works out great in most combinations!

This time round we used what’s left in our fridge to make this soup. I would say it has a strong home-made feel to it. The kind of comfort, thick hot soup you would slurp on a cold night. (Unfortunately, we are in Singapore and hoe has been complaining about the scorching sun for the longest time!)

Ingredients: Pan-fried marinated chicken, carrot, potato, milk, corn, garlic, basil,onion, salt, pepper, organic chicken stock

The pan-fried marinated chicken is definitely much more appetizing as compared to just boiling it. Try to achieve a full-flavoured chicken cubes by marinating them overnight.

Shredded Chicken Sweetcorn Soup

I was on medical leave for the last 2 days and slept throughout most of the day. Doctor says it’s gastric flu though i don’t recall having any past troubles with it. Hopefully this is the first and the last encounter. Hope my boss don’t think I’m queuing for the Diablo 3 launch! Lol.

Bly specially prepared this soup for me knowing that I have very little appetite.

I really loved this soup, maybe I have a thing with sweetcorns, but this soup  can really stimulate my taste buds, allowing me to taste the natural sweetness in this heartwarming soup.

Ingredients: Shredded chicken, fresh sweetcorn, garlic, mushroom, carrots, tomatoes, onions, thickening cream, pepper.

Shredded chicken makes it easier to chew and creates a fuller soup. Every scoop of this soup you will be able to taste some of the wholesome  ingredients that make up this wonderful soup.
