Trotter & Soy Bean Soup

My husband suddenly mentioned collagen the other day. Trotters came to my mind immediately. So I decided to cook this soup. A very classic Chinese trotter and soy bean soup.

It’s a very simple but time-consuming soup.

  1. Wash trotters in water and remove the hair.
  2. Soak soy beans in advance for 2 or 3 hours at least.
  3. Place trotters, soy beans, ginger slices, in a pot. Add in enough water.
  4. Turn to high heat, bring it to boil first. Skim the soup. And simmer with low heat for 2 hours at least.
  5. Season with salt and garnish some chopped spring onion.

I used the rice cooker’s soup function and simmer it for over 4 hours. It turned out amazing.

Soup is sticky and rich. Meat can easily fall off from the bone. My husband drank a whole big bowl of soup very fast. He couldn’t stop and kept saying “delicious”.
