Luffa Meatball Soup



This is my kind of perfect "one-dish meal" to go with rice.  There's meat, vegetable and soup, ALL in ONE bowl of comfort soup.  I believe many busy mums will agree with me.  Just need to cook one soup and probably steam a fish and dinner is ready!  Simple to prepare, nutritious and the kids love it!  


Ingredients:
(serves 2 to 3 person)

(A)
150g minced pork
1 tbsp preserved vegetables (冬菜) - rinsed & chopped finely
1 stalk of spring onion (chopped)
Small piece of ginger - remove skin and grated
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1/2 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp corn flour
Pinch of salt
Dash of pepper

(B)
Luffa (丝瓜) - remove rough outer skin and inner seeds.  Thinly sliced.
1 tomato (cut into chunks)
350ml stock*  + extra water to make a big bowl of soup

* See recipe for stock-base using ikan bilis and dried scallop


Method:

1) Mix (A) together and chill in fridge for at least an hour.
2) Boil stock and water in pot.
3) When soup starts boiling, add luffa and tomato.
4) Scoop a heap teaspoon of meat fillings, shape into meatball between the teaspoon and your palm (wet your palm first) and drop the meatball into soup.  Cook for about 3 minutes.
5) Add a little salt to taste and serve.
