ABC Soup

Tuesday, 2 September 2008

We always have soup for dinner together with various dishes at my grandmother's. She used to boil her soup on a charcoal stove for hours and is always yummy. This is one of my favourites as it's very simple yet very delicious.

I always wonder why it's called ABC soup and up until now, noone can give me a definite answer. So whenever people ask me why it's called ABC soup, I would just say because it has vitamins A, B and C - full of nutrients!

  • 500g Chicken/ Pork ribs - chopped and blanched
  • 1 Large Carrot - chopped into fairly large pieces
  • 1 Large Potato - chopped into fairly large pieces
  • 1 Large Tomato - quartered
  • 1 Large Onion - cut into large rings
  • 1 tsp White peppercorn - crushed
  • 1 tsp Black peppercorn - crushed
  • 1.5 L Water
  • Salt

Optional ingredients:

  • Place all ingredients into a large pot, bring to boil.
  • Lower heat and simmer for at least 1 hour.
  • Add salt to taste.
