Ribs & Seaweed Soup

My husband doesn’t like seaweed. But I think seaweed is really good for health. Yet, he doesn’t say no to seaweed soup. So I made this soup for him.

  1. Since I used dry seaweed, I soaked them in water till softened before I started cooking.
  2. In a deep pot, add in ribs and enough water. Bring to boil and skim the soup to remove all the dirt.
  3. Good soup takes long time. I put all the ribs in a slow cooker, with seaweed, corn, shiitake, red dates and some ginger slices.

Also pour in the water after boiling the ribs. Add more water if you want.

I cooked it for 2 hours. And just season with salt.

My Husband’s Favorite Rib, Lotus Root & Peanut Soup Recipe

I was born and grew up in northern part of China. Actually, my family didn’t have the habit of having soup during the meal. I know that people from southern part really like soup. Soup to them is a must-have dish on the table.

My husband is a soup lover. He basically likes all kinds of soup. Influenced by him, I start to realize soup’s charm.

There is a chicken rice stall near where we live. If you order chicken rice there, a small bowl of lotus root & peanut soup will be served as well. My husband loves the chicken rice there and also their soup. He mentioned more than once how much he loves the soup with lotus root and peanut in it.

That’s why I decided to cook this soup.

1. Rinse ribs under water.

2. Place all ribs in the pot. Pour in enough water covers and even higher than the ribs.

3. Bring to boil with high heat. Skim the soup.

4. Add in several ginger slices, lotus root chunks, some peanuts. Turn to low heat. Cook for 1-2 hrs.

Nice soup takes long time unless you have pressure cooker.

Season with salt before serving.

The amazing part of the soup is that it tastes a bit sweet even without adding in any sugar.

My husband can have 2 bowls of it.
