Winter Melon Soup

This is an easy recipe to cook a nice soup.

We cook soup everyday at home and winter melon is one of the soups I like. I like clear soup and to cool us down.


500g winter melon, remove skin and cut into pieces

2 chicken carcass, boiled in hot water for 3-5mins

2 carrots, chopped to pieces

8 red dates

1 honey dates

2-3 cilantro roots (optional)

2tbsp goji berries

Salt, to taste

Water, around 2 litres ( I just make sure the water covers everything)


1. Add water in a large pot to a boil.

2. Add chicken carcass, red dates, and winter melon to the pot. Cover and bring water back to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer for about 1½ to 2 hours. Skim off any scum appearing on the surface.

3. Season with salt and add goji berries. Continue to boil for another 5 minutes. Turn off stove.
