Vegetables Soup

This vegetable soup is introduced on TV programs for the purpose of weight loss . The recipe is introduced by a popular model Suzanne who previously took this soup for weight loss. According to the show, replace one meal with this soup for a month could reduce up to 7kg! The rest of other two meals can take as liking, of course not a heavy buffet, regular meals would be fine. This detox soup is suitable for a person who does not have time to do exercise or not a fan of work out that much. It will gradually reduce the weight as consuming this soup. The more you consume the more weight you will likely to lose as indicated in the show. But eating the same soup every day can be boring therefore adding some spices like curry powder, garlic, pepper, chilly sauce to the soup is recommended. The benefit of taking this soup is:
  • Fat burning  
  • Weight loss 
  • Improve constipation 
The taste is very similar to minestrone soup because the tomato base soup but much lighter. I usually cook this in a big volume, keep it in a fridge and warm up the serving portion. I sometimes add some additional vegetables that remain in my fridge.

Burmese sour soup (ခ်ဥ္ရည္ဟင္း)

Burmese sour soup or Chin Yay Hin is a common soup that is eaten with curry. Burmese curry is a bit oily for that reason it is usually served with sour soup, pounded chilies or Napiyay with fresh vegetables and accompany by other types of salad. Using seasonal vegetables such as roselle leaves, radish, mustard green leaves, young tamarind leaves, etc. is very common.
Sometimes mixing available vegetables to make the soup also possible. Today I use Chinese watercress since it's in season now.

Edamame Soup

Edamame Soup is a hearty soup with full fragrant of green soybean . The soup is extremely healthy too as I use soy milk instead of fresh cream and milk, exclude onion and soup mixes to make the soup a bit lighter. The richness, silky smooth puree and nice fragrant from the soybean really boost the appetite up. Edamame also gave lovely and fresh light green color to the soup which is very beautiful. It can be served hot or chilled.
