Easy chinese cabbage soup

An easy soup for one.. or two.

I'm on my own today. So it's going to be something really simple for dinner tonight. Here's my take on chinese cabbage or napa cabbage soup.

Easy chinese cabbage soup (recipe for 2)

1 medium sized chinese cabbage, cut to own preference
50-100g minced meat (depending on preference)
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp oyster sauce (optional)
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp mirin / chinese rice wine (optional)
a pinch of corn flour (optional)
1 - 1 1 /2 cups water

1. Marinade minced meat with soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, mirin and corn flour.

2. Add chinese cabbage to boiling water. Mix in marinated minced meat. Bring soup to a boil.

3. Turn down fire and let soup simmer till cabbage is softened for about 25-30 minutes.

Another easy one-pot meal. A simple dinner where I get both my greens and protein. It's light and refreshing.. try it! You can have it on its own, with rice, or even add noodles to make it a really ONE-pot meal!

Delicious! Even fatty hubby thinks so too (^^)
