Chicken Soup #2 : Pumpkin Soy Chicken Soup 南瓜豆浆鸡汤

Normally we have soy milk as a beverage, how does it taste like having it as a savoury soup? With added pumpkin, this milky soy based chicken soup tasted extremely sweet and rich! With a bowl of steamed mixed brown rice, a nutritious one dish meal is ready to be served. 

Recipe ref : ‘100 种 最好喝鸡汤’ 杨桃文化
  • 4 fresh whole chicken leg, cut into half
  • 500gm deseeded pumpkin, scrub clean the skin and cut into chunks (I used Australian pumpkin as the flesh is more firm and creamy)
  • 5 cups homemade soybean milk, unsweetened
  • 1 cup hot stock/ water (optional)
  • 2 tbsp wolfberries, rinsed
  • salt to taste

  1. Blanch chicken leg in boiling water for 1 min. Drain away water.
  2. Place soybean milk, pumpkin chunks and chicken leg into a pot. Bring to boil. Lower heat and simmer for 40 mins. If you find it too thick or rich, add another 1 cup stock/water and simmer for another 5 mins. 
  3. Stir in wolfberries and add salt to taste. Cook for another 1 min. Turn off heat.
