Our soul-warming rendition of the traditional corn & pork ribs soup is a breeze to make without needing to skimp on those powerful health benefits!  

Often considered an Autumn dish, this traditional Chinese healing tonic uses good old pork ribs and a nourishing combination of dried scallops, wolfberries and red dates to create a rich moreish concoction and a taste of home.  

The pork ribs give it its hearty core flavour, and the corn adds a welcome, natural sweetness to the soup, and that touch of salt aids in drawing out the best flavours of the ingredients during the boiling process.  

This well-loved bone broth also packs a nutritional punch, providing a potent dose of collagen to help you maintain that dewy skin and megawatt smile.  A delicious dish that’s highly versatile, it can be had on its own or paired with rice and meats – even salads if you wish!  It comes as no surprise, then, that this soup shows up as a regular dining companion at many a family meal.  

In our recipe, we level up this dish with a boost of Huiji Waist Tonic to turn this bowl of goodness into a real nutritional powerhouse worthy of seconds and thirds!
