Chayotes and Coco de Mer with Dragon’s Tongue Leaf in Pork Soup
Soup Name: Chayotes and Coco de Mer with Dragon’s Tongue Leaf in Pork Soup
An interesting soup recommended by the vegetable vendor and coincidentally enough also provided most of the ingredients for this soup! It’s an interesting soup and mildly sweet to taste. Although I quite frankly don’t taste the Dragon’s Tongue Leaf or understand the benefits of it as concretely as some other ingredients listed on this site, it makes for an interesting experiment. If anyone has any further information on Dragon’s Tongue Leaf, please let us know! In general, a very neutral soup for children.
How do I prepare it?
Pre-marinate the pork overnight with the salt (although this step is not necessary)
Blanch pork bones in a separate pot of boiling water
Boil your soup water and immediately add large dried dates into the cold water
Peel and wash the water chayotes
Rinse seabed coconut and dragon’s tongue leaves in warm water
- Once water is boiling, add all the ingredients together
- Boil on high for 30 minutes. Reduce to simmering for 2 hours (or use internal pot).
- Serve and enjoy!
Neutral soup that is ideal for children and toddlers
Assists with supressing cough and throat dryness
