I love soups of all sorts, especially Chinese soups. To the Chinese, soups are highly nourishing as each ingredient in the soup delivers a certain health (and beauty) benefit and promotes overall vitality to the body.
Drinking soup is a huge part of the Chinese food culture, soup is often considered as “tonic.”
Other Recipes You Might Like
There are endless variations of soups in Chinese cuisine as so many ingredients could be used—Chinese herbs, protein (chicken, pork, beef, duck), vegetables (fresh and dried), dried seafood (dried scallops, abalone, oysters, etc.) or the combination of all the ingredients above.
One of the easiest soups that I always make at home is ginger and clam soup.
This soup is especially popular in Taiwan.
It takes only a few ingredients and practically 15 minutes to prepare, but the end result is absolutely pleasing.
Ginger and clam soup is great for the liver and stimulates a healthy appetite.
The next time you see fresh clams in your market, do buy them and buy a knob of fresh ginger.
Make this ginger and clam soup, it’s really very delicious!
