Hot (Spicy) Sour Soup 酸辣汤

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Mild and harmless-looking, this is not your usual noodle soup. The kick of Thai red chili and Chinese black vinegar can just wake up your senses anytime of the day. So never judge a book by its cover.


Not the Szechuan hot (spicy) and sour soup that you may order off the menu of a Chinese restaurant; (Read more...)

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

This bowl of soup is all part of the Brassica oleracea family which includes cabbage, brussel sprouts and broccoli (broccolini to be exact).

If there is only one essential tip to share for making this soup a success, it is to not over-cook the brussel sprouts and baby broccoli when they are added int (Read more...)

Kale, Tomatoes, Mushrooms Soup 羽衣甘蓝蕃茄蘑菇清汤

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Of the variety of kale available - do you have a favorite? I don't. I like using baby kale in a super-easy-and-quick stir-fry, red kale in a fruit and vegetable salad, green (curly) or lacinato (dino kale) in soups or stir-fries. Besides kale stir-fries, I am also constantly thinking of new ways to (Read more...)

Easy Rasam Soup 印度式酸辣汤

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Rasam soup is a soup that can be enjoyed throughout the year, in my opinion. The warmth and spice is elevating in the cool hibernating temperatures of winter but the sourish-factor can be very appetizing when the weather gets too hot causing a loss in appetite.


This is an easy Rasam Soup that does n (Read more...)

Cordyceps Chicken Soup 黑木耳虫草鸡汤

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

It was the first and last time I bought cordyceps. Rather, Mom bought them...for me.

Gosh. So super duper exorbitantly expensive! I was not aware of the cordyceps "market situation".

It was the last time as I will not be consuming it regularly for its claimed benefits (even if what good it does to the (Read more...)

Friday, April 4th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Sometimes, a dish can be "discovered" in unexpected ways: when the fridge is almost cleared of perishables such as milk and leafy greens before going on a short vacation; then just after you have returned and have not even get the time to stock up on some fresh produce/groceries to replenish the fri (Read more...)

Chicken Soup Wontons/ Dumplings 鸡汤云吞

Monday, February 24th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

This is another one-dish meal which saves me the trouble of cooking the noodle ("carbs") accompaniment. With homemade wontons (shared and given by my "wonton expert" friend), all I had to do was to cook a big pot of chicken soup with potatoes, carrots, tomatoes.

A big pot of chicken soup is "double- (Read more...)

Similarly green but not asparagus soup.


A combination of frozen and fresh describes this Organic Spinach, Pea and Jalapeno Soup


I have enjoyed the advantage of harvesting jalapeno from the garden, whenever I want. Fresh! Sadly, right now, as I am writing this post, our jalapeno plant is alrea (Read more...)

Thin strips of ham over macaroni soup - do you find this combo. of ingredients weird?  Ham and macaroni soup, a Western-style dish typically served as breakfast in Hong Kong, and often found in Hong Kong-style tea cafes 茶餐厅.

Artichoke and Leek Soup 洋蓟洋蒜苗汤

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Are frozen artichokes as versatile as frozen peas and corn kernels as a freezer-staple? I say "Yes". Make Artichoke Pizza, include them in Parchment-Steamed or Baked Vegetables or cook Artichoke and Leek Soup.


The thought of artichoke soup usually brings me back to Duarte's Tavern, Pescadero, CA. I (Read more...)
