Corn and Carrot Soup


The hot weather makes me feel very uncomfortable. The good thing is, during the day I spend my most of my time in free air-conditioned environment. Otherwise, it'll drive me crazy. The weather is so hot that I can't cool down at night even when the air-condition is on. Just imagine...

Because of the hot weather, I lost appetite. The only dish I think of is soup. I need nourishing clear soup to heal my body. So, I boiled this soup for lunch on Saturday. It's sweet and it boosted my body with plenty of  antioxidants. 

Corn and Carrot Soup
1 pearl corn, chopped into 1" length
1 carrot, peeled and cut into pieces
300gm pork ribs, chopped into pieces
spring onion, chopped (for garnishing)
1.25liter of hot boiling water
salt to taste

Steps:
1. Blanch the pork ribs in boiling water to remove scum.
2. Put everything in the slow cooker, except salt. Leave the soup boiling for 2 hours.
3. Add light soy sauce to taste and garnish with chopped spring onion.
