This is the perfect soup for the erratic weather recently. It is soooo hot even if it rains!
The husband also remarked that we’ve been having a lot of heaty and heavy food since our Taiwan trip (fried chicken, Taiwanese braised pork rice and bak chang anyone?)… so slow cooked soups it is this week!
Wintermelon and barley both have cooling properties, and the dried scallops, honey dates, corn and carrots add sweetness to the soup. Cbb loves this so much that she had two bowls of soup and asked for more. This soup can also be cooked over the stove top or in the pressure cooker, although I always find soups made in the pressure cooker not as flavourful.
We love having this soup. Would you like to try it? Anyone can make cook this!
