1 lotus root
2 dried honey dates
8-10 dried red dates

This past holiday season, I ate a lot, in fact, way too much. After all those festive meals, heavy big-fish-big-meat (大鱼大肉) and crazy seafood consumptions, I crave for something very simple, homey, and economical–and this lotus root soup came to my rescue…

Recently, when I was dining out at a Cantonese-style restaurant and had their daily soup (老火汤), I saw these dried honey dates (蜜枣) in the residue of the soup. After much asking around, I learned that this is the secret ingredient that Cantonese cooks use when they make their soup. (Cantonese people, especially those in Hong Kong, are famed for stewing up very tasty soups.)

The secret ingredient sure didn’t disappoint. I have never made such savory soup before. The taste of the pork ribs complimented the sweetness of these dried honey dates and the end result was a very light, pleasing, and refreshing soup that I just couldn’t stop sipping.

It’s time to take a break from fancy meals; it feels (and tastes) really good to be back to the basics.
