Dried And Fresh Bok Choy Soup - Soup Week #3


I’ve seen a TVB documentary on food, and the host was treated to a dried and fresh bokchoy soup. But her soup looked milky and white instead of mine looking so clear, hahahaha.

Actually I didn’t know what was in the soup so I just threw in whatever I think might make the soup nice. But it doesn’t look like what I saw on TV. Was it that the soup was boiled with pork lungs? I forgot, but here’s soup for you to try if you like “choy gon tong”

  3. Hi there,
    If you like tofu, you may add some tofu in the soup & get it cook together with the other ingredient. My grandma used to cook like that. :)

  9. JasMine,
    thanks for the feedback.
    Yeah, less oily. But a bit wasted as the loin gets hard to ingest, but ribs are soft to eat.
