I love this Chinese soup and Lotus Root Soup is the signature soup my mum makes for the family almost like clockwork every forthnight. Bly is always very innovative and in my opinion, have created a better version of this homely soup by adding barley as a key ingredient.
Indeed, this soup never fails to remind me of the comforts of home and stirs up the nostalgic feelings. I like the crunchy taste of the lotus root as well as eating the pork ribs with sliced red chili and soy sauce. Simple, yet it tastes so good… 🙂
Ingredients: Lotus root, barley, carrot, pork ribs, red dates, salt.
Barley adds an extra layer of sweetness to this clear soup. It also presents you with an opportunity to have an extra ingredient to munch on besides the lotus roots while slurping on this soup.
