This are comfort food for us in any season, cold or hot season, in cold season it offered warm blanket of comfort, while in hot season it offered freshness and simplicity of deliciousness. This seriously humble soup are my favourite, cheap, nutritious, easy to make and delicious. Maybe because it brought a lot of my childhood memories, there are sentiment in this dishes.
I named this “snow white soup” , I named food in weird way to attract excitement and interest of my kids even though I am being blessed that they loves veggies. Sometime it just silly thing to do, to laugh together with them. We are quite weird anyway, there are no boundaries for us, like placing certain food into categories, “only food to eat” on breakfast, lunch or dinner. We eat what we want, whenever we want, but only when we are hungry.
Here are the full of sentiment recipe.
Snow white soup
- 2 garlic, crush and chop roughly
- 1 big shallot (I choose french shallot, that what available here ), slice it
- 1 red chilli, seed out and slice (really optional, I put this chilli for cold season to infused warmness)
- 1 small daikon radish, slice it
- 8 to 10 pcs of napa cabbage, slice it roughly
- 2 scallions, slice it rough
- 500 ml water
- 500 ml thin coconut milk
- Sea salt and pepper
- Sugar (adjust according your preference)
- 1 tbs vegetables oil
- In medium heat and medium size pot, put inside vegetable oil, chili, garlic and shallot, sautéed until soft.
- After it soft, put inside water and coconut milk, let it simmer.
- After the water and coconut milk are simmering put the seasoning, sea salt, pepper and sugar (I usually put sea salt and sugar with 2:1 ratio, but everything would be differ by your preference) at this point don’t forget to give the stock a taste and corrected it accordingly.
- Then put the cabbage and radish in, cooked until it soft but not overcooked for textured (I cooked 3-5 minute, Napa cabbage is sweet and delicious enough even when it raw).
- Lastly put in the scallion and cooked for another 2 minute.
- We enjoy it with warm steam rice, or just eat it as it is with sprinkle of fried onion.
Note: you can add tofu or mushroom or carrot
