Pork Ribs and Lotus Root Soup
A classic soup in Chinese families, lotus roots are (trivia!) actually the stems of an aquatic plant type.
It is mild in taste and pairs really great with peanuts. And of course simmering it with pork ribs gives the soup the unique flavour that we’ve all grown to love.
The addition of red dates and carrots gives the soup a dash of natural sweetness – trust us when we say you only need salt for the seasoning!
Optionally, if you’d like to have a bit more herbal taste, finish this off with a dash of huiji waist tonic to add more depth!
