Picks of June, 2015

Chinese Tomato Tofu Soup

My father's home cooking recipe. The tomato and tofu are cooked with the dried seaweed and dried Chinese yellow flower vegetables (黃花菜). Simple and healthy.

Chinese Duck and Radish Soup

This is another healthy Chinese soup, the chopped duck legs are cooked with Chinese white radish, bamboo shoot and chestnuts, seasoned by star anise, ginger and dried orange skin.

Chinese Century Egg

Chinese Century Egg, called Pi Dan 皮蛋 or Song Hua Dan 松花蛋 in Chinese, is a very common food in Chinese daily eating. It is popular around Chinese Dragon Boat Festival (this year is June 20).

We usually make it a cold dish with soy sauce and very hot green chillies. This post shows you how we make this dish at home. Click the picture to see details and more pictures.

Video: How to Make Chinese Soup Dipping Sauce

Like this Chinese duck radish soup, some of Chinese homemade soups are light and healthy. So we usually serve the soup with a homemade dipping sauce, which helps to give additional flavour.
