Lotus Root Soup


4 people


1 hour 10 minutes



– 1 lb. (0.4 kg) lean pork ribs – 1 lotus root – 2 dried honey dates – 8-10 dried red dates – 6 cups water – Salt to taste

Step 1

Cut the pork ribs into short lengths and set aside. Peel off the skin of lotus root and cut into slices. Soak the dried honey dates and dried red dates in warm water for 5 minutes.

Step 2

Bring the pot of water to boil and add in all the ingredients. Cover the pot and simmer for 1 hour or until well cooked. Add salt to taste.

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.
