ABC soup

soup, carrot, potato, tomato, Chinese, kid, toddler, food for tots

If you are in a rush and need to cook 1 dish-meal cum soup, then this soup is the perfect choice! It is not only as easy as ABC but also a wholesome soup for the family. All of the ingredients (except for the fish bones) are edible. You can serve it with rice or pasta. Hence it is considered a “ZERO wastage” soup. Guess what have I done to the sweetcorns and potatoes in the soup? I had created another dish. The answer is here!

380g salmon fish bones (you can substitute with lean pork or chicken bones) – blanch over boiling water, put into a soup bag
2 large potatoes (about 300-400g) – cut into 4 for each potato
2 carrots (about 200g) – cut into chunks
1 large sweetcorn (about 360g) – cut into chunks
3 tomatoes (about 300g) – sliced
1 stalk celery (about 100g) – cut into chunks
1 white onion
2 bay leaves
1500ml water

Salt and pepper to taste

Servings: 9-10 persons

1. Bring water to boil. Add in fish bones, onions, sweetcorns and bay leaves. When the soup re-boils, turn the heat to lower and simmer for 2 hours.
2. After half an hour, add in potatoes, carrots, celery.
3. 5 mins before turning off the heat, add in tomatoes.
4. Season with salt and pepper.
