With a few windy days coming our way leading us into a change of season, there’s always some kind of adjustment to be made. Whether it is getting the sweaters out of storage, or eating well to stay hydrated and nourished, or warding off any unwanted colds, it calls for a little autumnal comfort.
Soups and hot broths are back in season. We pride ourselves on these delicious concoctions made of ginger, greens, berries and more. What they offer is a well balanced meal bringing you protein, fibres and fats all in one. And of course, a little carbohydrate to energize you if you are feeling the autumn blues.
For those days when the air is chillier, a soup or broth will keep your heart warm. At Naturally Chinese, our popular soup for this season is a choice of
Prawn wanton soup with noodles
Mustard greens with salted egg and pork
Spinach and goji berry broth.
These soup/ broths are good enough for two but can be enjoyed by one with a big appetite. All the greens in these soups co-ordinate with the respective dish to complement the flavour. The richness and vitality of each of these bitter greens cannot be denied. They are nutritious and fortifying especially in the colder months.
And, as one of our favourite tips for the Autumn season remains -the power of ginger. Keep a bit of ginger root in your kitchen to infuse with homemade broths and soup. This makes an excellent ingredient to ward off sniffles.
