The Fussy Palate:

Chinese Pumpkin Soup recipe


[photo-chinese-yam-wolfberry-pumpkin-pork-soup]This easy-to-make soup recipe is both remarkably delightful to the palette and nutritiously beneficial for our health. My mother made this Chinese Yam and Goji Pumpkin Pork Soup for the family one evening and it quickly became the highlight of that dinner. We love this soup from Mom, and I hope you will enjoy her recipe as well.

This soup offers a clean savory sweet taste, and an appealing ensemble of colors to greet the eyes. Biting into the Kabocha pumpkin cooked in my mother’s recipe (as my dad accurately described) is like biting into the nice soft yolk of a salted egg you would find in a Chinese mooncake.

With key ingredients like the chinese yam, kabocha pumpkin, and goji (wolfberry), this soup is a delicious way to take in natural beta carotene, vitamin C, and minerals like iron and potassium. The soup also gently tonifies the Qi without causing heat or injuring the Yin. Enjoy!
