This is a Chinese-style soup which might resemble a western soup to you at first glance. It consists of diced vegetables (potato, onion, tomato, celery and carrot) as well as chicken.

Diced Vegetables (Chinese Minestrone Soup Recipe)

My mum often cooked this, and when I asked her the name of this soup,  she said she had no idea. So I simply called it “Chinese minestrone soup” because the way the vegetables are diced reminds me of minestrone soup.

In fact, the taste also ends up a little similar to minestrone soup because of the tangy taste of the tomatoes. If you don’t have the patience, you can cut the vegetables to large chunks instead, and it will resemble the familiar local “ABC soup”. Somehow, the soup taste different just by the different cutting method.

Whenever I cook this soup, the kitchen is filled with the incredible aroma of the simmering vegetables. This soup is great for clearing the fridge of that last onion, potato, carrot and tomato – all in one pot.

    :D I always make a soup similar to this when I’ve got no ideas in my head – one usually has most of the ingredients in one’s fridge!

    Your soup looks great! I love a mixed vegetable soup, and when everything is diced, you can fit a mix of ingredients in each spoonful. Delicious.

      Yes exactly. Otherwise, I won’t even eat the veggies if they are in chunks :D

    An ideal comfort & easy soup for my winter! I like minestrone soup but this twist Chinese-style gives a new dimension to it in flavors and colors. :lol:

    What a nice bowl to warm up the body! It is cold and cloudy with a chance of rain as well.

    A great way of getting rid of random vegetable bits. Reminds me of ABC soup =)

    Yummie! Love this kind of soup…light and healthy yet delicious. Nice pictures!


  10. Hehe, for us, too, having small dice is “fancier” because we’re usually lazy and resort to cutting everything in big pieces. =)
