Nuts & Lily Bulb Soup 腰果百和汤

We love soup, so I thought I should start cooking soup in the weekends. Furthermore I bought 2 soup recipe books some years back, better put them into use :) Here is one from the book.

Nuts & Lily Bulb Soup

  • 3oz cashew nuts
  • 3oz red beans
  • 3oz lotus seeds
  • 3oz lily bulbs
  • 8oz shin of pork (but I use pork ribs instead)
  • some table salt (I did not use, I never add in any unnecessary seasoning)
  • Wash n scald the shin of pork (or pork ribs), take out n rinse well
  • Wash cashew nuts, red beans, lotus seeds and lily bulbs
  • Bring a suitable amount of water to boil. Throw in cashew nuts, red beans, lotus seeds, lily bulbs and pork (or pork ribs).
  • Bring to boil then turn to low heat to parboil for 2 hours.
  • Season with salt (optional) and serve.
According to the recipe book;
“这汤非常有益健康,因为红豆和莲子有补气血之功效,百合有利大小便和清热,而腰果则含有丰富的蛋白质、肪脂质和维他命A、B。 ”
