Meatless Winter Melon Soup [Meatless Chinese Soup Recipes] | Gluten Free, Oil Free, Vegan Option
In this episode of “RECIPES FOR MY DAUGHTER”, I am making winter melon soup, which is a classic in traditional Chinese cuisine.
However, this soup is traditionally made by simmering bone broth and meat stock, which are high in fat and highly inflammatory.
My version of this classic soup is made without using meat or bone broth. Instead, I use a variety of dried fruits and vegetables like corn to flavour the soup.
Since we are not wholly plant based or vegan, I also use dried scallops to add more depth to the flavour. Of course, you can always leave out the scallops to keep the soup fully plant based.
Seasoned with just sea salt, pepper, and a little bit of brown sugar, this soup is warming and delicious, but without all the fat from meat.
