Almond, Sea Coconut And Pumpkin Soup

When you first taste this soup, you will thought that you are drinking Red Bean Soup.... Because they do have the similar taste. I think maybe is the Dried Tangerine Peel and Dried Lily. This soup actually promote circulation of Qi, expel septum and aids digestion. The Sweet and Bitter Almonds also clears the Heat, Moistens internal Dryness and avoids coughing. It's a very good sweet soup after dinner to smooth your throat. Do consider and give it a try.... I bet you will sure find it delicious.

  2. Hi! I came across your recipe while searching for what to do with dried sea coconut. I recently purchased this from the Chinese food store because it looked interesting. Could you tell me any other (or traditional) uses for dried sea coconut? I will try your soup recipe as well! Thanks!~ Bonnie

  3. Hi Bonnie,

    i am not sure about the usage of the dried sea coconut but from what I google you can use it to double-boil soup with lean pork/chicken too.

  4. Hi, can exclude the lean pork?
