Cookbook Countdown #9: NSCRHR ~ Terry Tan's Winter melon, Meat and lotus seed soup

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
For September 2016

See more books by Terry Tan HERE
Winter Melon, Meat and Lotus seed soup - page 180-181
you may use chicken breast meat
pre-soaked the lotus seeds mean shorter cooking period
winter melon large dice, soy sauce and pepper
these are all you need
This is the third dish from one round baby winter melon.
Very simple ingredients with delicious results.
