Apple Soup Recipes Chinese


Chinese Apple Herbal Soup IngredientsDo you have a favorite soup to order in a Chinese restaurant? For the longest time, my parents always get Apple Soup (蘋果湯) whenever we go to one. The restaurant version almost always have fried fish with it instead of chicken, but I never really like the fish, so I use chicken when I make the soup at home. For that matter, I am not even sure what fish they use LOL 😀

Since this soup is not as common as Chinese chicken herbal soup or Chinese six herbs soup, I never find pre-packaged soup packets for this. I hope the ingredients photo gives a good idea on what each ingredient look like in case you are interested to hunt them down on your next visit to Asian grocers or Chinatown 🙂
