Since childhood, this has been one of my favourite soups. Not sure why this soup is called the "ABC Soup", probably it is chicken soup with lots of vegetables, so packed with all the vitamins and goodness. My mum did not call it "ABC Soup", but “薯仔红萝卜番茄煲鸡汤”, which is the ingredients she used for this soup: potato+carrot+tomato+onion and chicken (add a few pieces of dried scallop for that extra rich flavour). I prefer this version too, though I will make changes, depending on what I have in the fridge.
|Ingredients: Corn, tomato, carrot,onion, chicken|
1) Cut vegetables.
2) Blanch chicken in hot water and set aside.
3) Boil 1.5 litre water, add all ingredients except tomato and simmer for 1 hour and 30 mins.
4) Add tomato and simmer for further 30 mins. Alternatively, you can add together in step 3.
5) Season with salt (I added a small piece of 大头菜 at the beginning, so no need to add salt)
