If you are someone who can’t resist fried and “heaty” stuff and late nights, this is a good and easy soup to help cool down your body “heatiness”.
You only need 2 ingredients – a bunch of watercress and 5 honey dates. And water! 😄
I use electric cooker which has pre-set menu that slow boil the soup for 3.5 hours. You can also cook this over the stove for about 1.5-2.5 hours.
There’s no need to add meat for this soup! No need extra seasoning too as the honey dates give sweetness to the soup. We call it 甜汤 in mandarin. Easy peasy 🙂
