Cabbage Soup

As a working wife, I can only find time to cook on a day or two of the week. Thus, it is vital that I use up all the ingredients for that week, to avoid wastage. It's fun to know that I am not alone.

I also find it extremely satisfying when the dish that I cooked with the 'remains' turned out to be good. :)

  • Cabbage (remains)
  • A few slices of tomato (remains)
  • 3 pieces of mock meat
  • 2 tbsp Woh Hup scallop concentrates (highly recommended as it does not contain MSG!)
  • 6 cups of water
Method (too simple to be true)
1) Boil water with concentrates
2) Add cabbage and mock meat
3) Add tomato just before serving

I wanted to add sugar and salt to make it more flavourful, but I find it absolutely unnecessary after trying a spoonful! The soup itself was already very sweet. Yums...

On a side note, I realised that soup made from scallop concentrates taste so much better than from chicken concentrates. And a bottle of scallop concentrates costs only like thirty cents more? :)

Haha, you are not alone, I am a working mother as well, anything not used up by Sunday will be transferred over to my MIL's place on Monday morning or left in my fridge and wasted. :P
