Ingredients

  • 600g bitter melon

  • 160g soya beans

  • 160g preserved leaf mustard cabbage

  • 480g trotter ham

  • 1 red pepper

  • 4 Chinese black mushrooms

  • adequate dried shrimps (optional)

Healing Effect

  • Supplement the deficiency of the five parenchymatous viscera and regulate the six hollow viscera.

Method

  1. Wash and blanch the trotter ham. Wash and soak the soya beans for an hour. Cook the soya beans, trotter ham with 15 bowls of water to make soup, about 3 hours.

  2. Cut the bitter melon into pieces, put it in the soup together with the preserved leaf mustard cabbage, mushrooms and red pepper and dried shrimp, let it cook for a further 30 minutes.

Practical Tips:

  1. A whole chilli peper can rid the "coldness" within the body; chopped chilli can make the soup taste hotter.

  2. To enrich the flavour of the soup, put some dried shrimps in it.
