Radish and Carrot Soup

The soup my hubby hated most! Serious! He said it smells terrible. Taste is okay by he just could take it because of the smell. My kids will take it but not their favourite. I love it though.

  • 1 Radish, skinned and sliced
  • 1 1/2 carrot, skinned and sliced
  • 250g pork ribs
  • 1 handful Wolfberries
  • 1 piece Dried Octopus
  • 4 Red Dates, cored
  • 1.5 liter Water
  • Salt to taste
How to do it:
  1. Blanched pork ribs.
  2. Put all ingredients except wolfberries in pot and brew for 2 - 3 hours in low fire.
  3. Add wolfberries during last 1/2 hour of brewing.
  4. Add salt to taste.
  5. Serve.

    Oh yes! I checked with the Chinese physician and they said it will. And it's a 凉 (cooling) soup. Good to take if heaty but not often.
