Old Cucumber with Chicken Feet Soup Recipe

I love the texture of old cucumber that has been boiled in soup. They taste so good with a little soya sauce and cili padi (bird eye chilly). Nothing beats the pleasure of gnawing away the cartilages and skins on the chicken feet in soup! He he he! LOL! Old cucumbers that have lots of visible old fibres on the skin would taste better than the ones that have smooth skin. The texture of a very old cucumber would be tender but not soggy compared with younger ones.

Ingredients
Old Cucumber, 1 pc, cut into bite sizes
Chinese Red Dates, 5 pcs
Chicken Feet, 5 pcs
Cuttlefish, 2 pcs (optional)
Whole pepper, 7 pcs, crushed
Salt to taste
Water, 7 bowls

Pour water in pot and bring to a boil. Add in the chicken feet, cuttlefish, old pepper, Chinese red dates and old cucumber. Boil until the chicken feet and old cucumber turn soft. Add salt to taste. Serve hot with steamed rice.

Old cucumber is very cooling and nutritious, suitable for these steaming hot weather!^-^

I cook this soup, with skin on the cucumber. It may look dirty, but there are nutrients under the skin.
My girls love to eat the soft old cucumber.
