Wakame Seaweed Fresh Mushrooms Soup 紫菜海带鲜菇汤

Friday, May 22nd, 2015

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

This recipe is similar to Seaweed, Fresh Shiitake Mushrooms and Spinach Soup, however made simpler this time (without spinach) with wakame seaweed and two kinds of mushrooms - fresh shiitake mushrooms and bunashimeiji beech mushrooms.

To save time, fresh mushrooms are added directly to a simmering p (Read more...)

Red Radish Soup-Curry 樱桃萝卜/ 小红萝卜咖喱

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

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

Red globe radishes (樱桃萝卜/小红萝卜) are easy to use in curry-in-a-hurry in which the radish leaves can be used at the same time; add the raw sharp-flavored radish leaves towards the end of cooking to mellow down its peppery flavors.


I usually do not peel these red globe radishes, as beneficial anti-oxidan (Read more...)

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...)

Brussel Sprouts, Broccoli, Cabbage Pasta Soup 甘蓝,西兰花,高丽菜汤

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...)

Miso Butternut Squash Soup, dairy-free 味噌南瓜汤

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...)

Spinach, Pea, Jalapeno Soup

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

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...)
