Weekend Menu #15: Food to warm your soul

What a great dish to kick start my day non other than a nice bowl of mihun soup. I love my soup to be sour, so some kiam chai and tomato do the trick. Fresh fish meat is a good protein source. I can finish 2 bowls but I got to watch my weight at the same time.



Another great soup is chicken soup. Funny thing is that when I am not well, I always crave for either porridge or warm chicken soup. As hubby and I were not feeling well last week, we have some ginseng chicken soup. I can have many bowls of these soups and dip my chicken meat in light soy sauce. Yummy! What do you have when you are not feeling well?




This dish is mostly cooked during confinement. I ate a lot of these kacang ma during my 2 confinements. It is a Hakka heritage dish. To read more, go here. It is flavourish with lots of herbs, old ginger and wine. On normal days I will crave for it but of course with less white wine. I do not need too much of wine, but it does good to cleanse the body when you have your monthly menstrual.

i like mee hoon soup outside, but not at home coz i can't cook good soup. Any tips for your soup stock? Need to boil some bones up front?

Hi! You can use anchovies or chicken stock. Both taste nice.
