Lotus Root Soup Recipe

In this recipe, the peanuts will be slightly crunchy, so if you prefer soft peanuts, simmer the soup for a bit longer.

Serves: 3

Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 50 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 sections (about 400g) lotus root wash to get rid of the soil
  • 250g pork ribs
  • 1.5 litres water
  • 1 carrot peeled and cut to small chunks
  • 6 dried scallops optional
  • 1 dried cuttlefish optional
  • 10 dried pitted red dates
  • 100g de-shelled raw peanuts
  • salt to taste

Directions

  1. Using a vegetable peeler, remove the skin from the lotus root and cut to 1 cm slices.
  2. Blanch pork ribs in boiling water for about 5 minutes, rinse blanched pork pieces in water and set aside.
  3. In a pot, add water, lotus roots and the rest of the ingredients except salt. Simmer for 40 minutes, or until the pork is tender. For best results, keep warm in a thermal pot until ready to serve. Season with salt.
