Yen Can Cook ~ Beetroot & Corn Soup

I like to “experiment” all sort of combination of vegetables and fruits for my soup, so you may find some “unusual” (or should I say exotic? not really though :P) ingredients such as starfruit, yacon, lentils and barleys in my soup recipes. Those recipes are not originally created by me, some I referred to cookbooks and some were online recipes. Today’s recipe is one of the latter, which I saw in a FB cooking group, calls for a few easy obtained vegetables like beetroot and corn, as well as dried fig.

Ingredients (Serve: 3-4)

1-2 beetroots (about 350-400g), peeled and cut into small chunks
1 ear of corn, shucked and cut into chunks

500g pork ribs

6-7 dried figs

2500ml water

Salt to taste
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Step 1: Bring a pot of water to boil, add in a few ginger slices and 1 tablespoon of cooking wine, blanch the pork ribs to remove blood and impurities. Remove, drain and set aside.
Step 2: Put all the ingredients into a pot and add in water until enough to immerse all the ingredients. Bring to boil and lower the heat and let the soup simmer for 2-3 hours.
Step 3: Season with salt and serve.

HAPPY COOKING!    #stayhealthy
