Chayote Black Eye Beans Soup

Yummy Bakes | 9:03 AM |
This is the first time I am using chayote for soup and it is very tasty.  Will certainly make this more often as it is naturally sweet and very appetising.

Recipe reference from Fong's Kitchen

1 chayote (佛手瓜), peeled and cut into chunks
2 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
1 handful of black eye beans (眉豆)
5 to 6 red dates
1 small piece of ginger, smashed
Chicken bones (2 racks)*, removed skins and trimmed off fats

* I used the bones from one medium-sized chicken.  Cut and set aside the drums, thighs, wings and breast meat.  The remaining bones and legs for making soup

1) Blanched the chicken bones in hot water.  Set aside.
2) Bring a pot of water (about 1.7 litre) to boil.  When water starts boiling, add in all the ingredients.  Bring it to boil again and reduce to low heat to simmer for an hour and a half.
3) Season with salt to taste.  Serve hot.

  5. Thank you all - now I know this is a nutricious soup, I shall make more often. :)
