Sebrinah's Simple ABC Soup

Nothing gets more easier & nutritious than this recipe.


Homemade ABC Soup


Ingredients: (2-3 pax)
-Water
-Chicken ribs/breasts with the bones attached to the meat (cut into bite size)
-2 med tomato (cut into bite size)
-2 med Russet potato (cut into bite size)
-1 med purple onion (cut into bite size)
(Optional) Carrots, Fish sauce, salt, black pepper

FYI:
Common ingredients to the original commercialized ABC soup is Chicken, tomato, potato, onion, carrot, salt & black pepper. But I always omit the seasonings as it is healthier and tasty that way. For me less seasoning is better. Also, carrot will help make your soup look tasty and taste sweet because of the color that will be extracted from the carrot and the sweetness from carrots.

Preparation: (About 30min-1hour and more)
Boil water till hot, add in all the ingredients together. The water level should be covering the ingredients just nice, if the ingredients looks like it's sunken to the bottom of the water then scoop out some of the water (means too much water=diluted soup). Just let this soup simmer on low heat and cover the pot. Once it boils, your whole kitchen will be filled with the soup aroma. 

Open to taste it, if it's not salty then u can add a lil bit of "Fish sauce" or salt.
If you need the "kick" feeling in the soup, you can add black pepper in to boil together.
Once the potato, tomato and onion is really soft, your soup is ready to be served.
If the water covers the ingredients evenly, you don't even need to add any fish sauce or salt to taste.

Serve it while it's hot. If cooking for your kids, u can add rice into the soup and serve. U can make the ingredients in the soup softer by boiling it longer (more than 2hrs) but watch out for the water level as it will reduce from time to time u just add in a lil bit so the soup don't try up. Double boiling will make the chicken softer too.

Enjoy~!
