Welcome to Cookbook Countdown
 I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown

Chicken Soup with Winter Melon and Wolfberries
for two pax I used:
one chicken breast meat, cleaned and trimmed off fat
chinese wolfberries, washed
water, salt, ground black pepper,
winter melon chunks
dark soy sauce, chopped fresh coriander leaves
crisp-fried shallots

paired with purple sweet potatoes and blanched greens
I bought a round baby winter melon and this is the second dish
I made with it!  Very simple ingredients with delicious results.

Hi Emily,
I like winter melons, but do not often used it in cooking. I love it in soups!
