The weather in Singapore is perpetually hot and humid. So the best way to cool down in our tropical climate is with a nourishing and cooling bowl of watercress soup (西洋菜汤).

Watercress is packed with anti-oxidants and vitamins. It is said to have detoxifying and cancer-preventing properties as well. Home cooking is all about healthier living so soups like this is a must on my dinner table every now and then. This is a real taste of home-cooked food to me.

    Yup, definitely a soup to drink during the hot weather we are getting now. I love eating the watercress and the ribs after it’s been boiled for a couple of hours. So delicious.

    I love this soup, so tasty and refreshing! Too bad watercress is not readily available here, only in Chinatown =(

    Definitely a must-have for hot days. But unfortunately if I were to prepare this, I would end up eating it myself. If only you’re my next door neighbour hmmmmm…………..

    Oh my gosh….so many of my blogger friends have been making this soup and I have been leaving the same comment everywhere!!! But it truly represents my thought, anyway, here it is again:

    I grew up drinking the second soup too! In my house we add in dried cuttlefish (diu phin) and honey dates (mat zhou) to the soup and it gives it the extra richness and smoky flavour! Very yummy!
