Ingredients :

    • 300 g (10 oz) bok choy or Chinese (Napa) cabbage, cut in half lengthwise
    • 3 dried black Chinese mushrooms, soaked in hot water for 20 minutes then drained
    • 2 cups (500 ml) chicken stock
    • 2 tablespoons sliced ham
    • 60 g (1/2 cup) dried prawns, soaked in warm water, drained
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Method :

    1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and briefly blanch the vegetables. Drain and chopped into 3-cm (11/4-in) pieces. Halve the mushroom caps if they are large and discard the tough stems.
    2. Bring the chicken stock to a boil in a stockpot. Add the ham, mushrooms, dried prawns, vegetables, and salt.
    3. Bring the stock back to a boil and skim off any foam from the surface. Reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are very tender.
    4. Remove from the heat and pour into a soup tureen and serve immediately.
