Burdock root soup is good for detoxifying our body. It has a little earth taste and goes along well with pork ribs in soup. I do not have pork ribs in stock, so I just used some chicken bones instead.
This is a simple Burdock root soup recipe.
Pork Ribs or Chicken Carcass, 500 gms
Burdock Root (Ngau Pong), 1 pc, remove skins and cut into 2 inches length
Chinese Red Dates, 10pcs
Carrot, 1 pc, cut into bite sizes
Pepper, to taste
Garlic, 1 bulb
Salt to taste
Water, 10 rice bowls or enough to cover ingredients above 3 "
Pour water into pot and bring to a boil. Add in pork ribs or chicken carcass. Put in the rest of the ingredients. Boil under low heat for 2 hours.
Serve while still hot.
I love my Burdock soup with some chilli padi (bird eye chilly) in light soya sauce. yum yum!
