Black Bean Soup

Pablopabla of Hochiak! Delicious Asian Food is running a contest and don't say I didn't inform you guys that he's giving away more than USD100 as the prizes!!! It's very generous of him and the closing date is 31st August 2008. Head on to his blog to check the details of this contest. Hurry!!!

Now back to my entry... since I'm feeling lucky as it's my Birthday, I decided to post this up today haha... Based on his Black Bean Soup recipe, this is my version done in a pressure cooker.

Black Beans Soup

Black Bean Soup

200g black beans
1.5 litre water
1 free range chicken carcass
10 - 15 red dates

Wash and soak the black beans for about 30 mins.

Chucked everything into the pressure cooker and boil till steam rises out of the vent. Reduce heat to medium low and start clocking for 20 mins. Turn off the heat and let the pressure go off on its own. When done, open the lid and serve the soup hot. You may add in some salt if you like.

The beans turned out super tender and the soup tasted of natural sweetness of the 3 ingredients. I simply loved this soup. This soup is very good for ladies especially during confinement period.

Mothers say it helps blood circulation. Or was it fortifying iron. Or .. aiya I always get confused. Sometimes I'll mix in peanuts so the whole pot doesn't look so black. Hope whatever nutreints remain intact.

Oh, a happy hapi belated b'day wish for Babe & Boiboi.
