Chinese-Style Minestrone Soup


First posted in Jun 2009, updated in Nov 2016.

This is a Chinese-style soup which might resemble a western soup to you at first glance. It consists of diced vegetables (potato, onion, tomato, celery and carrot) as well as chicken.

Diced Vegetables (Chinese Minestrone Soup Recipe)

My mum often cooked this, and when I asked her the name of this soup,  she said she had no idea. So I simply called it “Chinese minestrone soup” because the way the vegetables are diced reminds me of minestrone soup.

In fact, the taste also ends up a little similar to minestrone soup because of the tangy taste of the tomatoes. If you don’t have the patience, you can cut the vegetables to large chunks instead, and it will resemble the familiar local “ABC soup”. Somehow, the soup taste different just by the different cutting method.

Whenever I cook this soup, the kitchen is filled with the incredible aroma of the simmering vegetables. This soup is great for clearing the fridge of that last onion, potato, carrot and tomato – all in one pot.
