清润解热素苦瓜汤 Vegetarian Bitter Gourd Soup


With my husband's hectic traveling schedule and not drinking enough water for proper hydration, I decided to make him this soothing soup rich with cooling properties.
我丈夫因为工作的需要而时常出国公干,特别是这3月里在家的数日不超过一个礼拜。进来的气候炎热再加上工作上奔波我便为了他准备了这道清热的滋润汤解热。


This is my first time making this soup without the use of meat and we were pleasantly surprise with the outcome. To us, this vegetarian version taste better than the meat laden types which could sometime come with a foul aftertaste of dead meat.
这是我第一次尝试煮全素的苦瓜汤,煮出来的效果出乎意料的好喝,一点都不输给于用肉类焖煮的孤苦汤。现今不如以往,许多市场贩卖的肉都是冷藏而不新鲜,导致煮出来的汤带有腐臭的尸味。

If you are looking for something simple and yet nourishing then this is another soup option to consider.
你若是想尝试些简易即又滋养的汤食谱,那么这会是一道不错的选择可以考虑。
