Watercress Soup with Luo Han Guo

   

Watercress Soup with Luo Han Guo Recipe

Check Out: Watercress with Pork Ribs Soup Recipe

Whenever I have an irritated throat, or I feel a cough coming, I will make this soup remedy. It’s basically the watercress soup recipe, with an added luo han guo fruit (monk’s fruit). Chinese traditional medicine has always used luo han guo fruit to treat coughs, sore throat and combat phlegm. Luo han guo is also naturally sweet, so it gives a sweet taste to this soup. If you don’t like watercress that much, you may find the addition of luo han guo more pleasing to your palate.

    This is what I need now! I have had irritated throat since I drank the beverage with erythritol. I caught flu yesterday. I may need to substitute the pork ribs :)

    I remember I have luo han guo tea in the pantry. Thanks!

    Looks really a healthy bowl of soup! I have never tried the combo of watercrss with luo han guo.. must be nice cos I like luo han guo.
    By the way, I really love disposable soup stock bag. Do you think I can buy this online?

      I got it from Fu Hua, you can find at almost all Chinese medical halls in SG. I’ve seen it at some NTUC outlets before too (dried goods section) :)
