vegetable soup | flowers

Another attempt at #ivyytkitchenadventure yesterday!

Pretty easy to guess what my dish was yea? #dayrecooks

Chopped all the vegetables up!

Carrots
Tomatoes
Sweet corn
Cabbage
Cauliflower

My mum gave us these to make some soup!

Start by boiling 3.5 bowls of water in med-high heat.

My mum said if it’s just the 2 of us, 2 bowls will do. But.. there’s barely enough water in the pot to cook the vegetables so I added more.

Once the water boils, throw all the vegetables in. When it starts boiling again, change to low heat and let it simmer. Depends on how soft you want your vegetables to be. I let it simmer for 30 min because I like the vegetables very soft.

Threw in some vegetarian meatballs and dumplings.

I cheated by adding a little mushroom seasoning and 大菜头 because I was worried the soup will be tasteless.

It was very sweet indeed 😀 oh and a little too much for 2 pax. I have a bowl left over which will be my dinner for tonight.

It’s a very simple dish, but an achievement for me.

I’m very very scared to attempt Chinese food because I’ve never done it before. If I fail, it means either there’s no dinner, or it’s just very 难吃. Which I’m fine with, if I’m alone. But now there’s the hubs so ya.

Every small step means one step forward, more dishes learnt.

Very happy that I have a kitchen to call my own! Gradually conquering my fear of cooking (Chinese food) haha.

Got these beauties today!

Always wanted some flowers to brighten up the house.

And some thistles.

I picked the main flowers from my solemnisation bouquet.

Still loving this 2 choices!

My end product! For the dining table.

Plenty of thistles left so took some random jar and put a ribbon on. It’s on my coffee table!
