Black Bean Cuttlefish Soup

Submitted by on July 10, 2009 – 7:41 am10 Comments | 23,072 views

Soup Name: Black Bean Cuttlefish Soup

Traditional Chinese Name: 黑豆墨鱼湯 (hēi dōu mò yú tāng) 


This recipe creates a simple, healthy and delicious soup that is quick and easy to make.   The black beans are nutrituous and filling and the pork bones and cuttlefish provide a delicious broth base.   Due to the simple ingredients used, this soup is suitable for children.

What Ingredients are required?

1 pound fresh pork bones
1 cup of black beans
1 dried cuttlefish
10 red dates
2 – 3 L of water

How do I prepare it?

  1. Blanch the pork bones in a separate pot of water
  2. Wash and soak the cuttlefish and red dates
  3. Boil your soup water
  4. Once the water is boiling, put all ingredients into the soup
  5. Boil on high heat for 30 minutes
  6. Reduce heat and simmer for another 1 or 2 hours (it is best eaten when the pork meat is tender and falling off the bones)
  7. Serve and enjoy!

 Any benefits?

  • Ideal for children and toddlers  (my daughter loves eating the black beans)
  • It is nutritious and simple to make.  If you eat the black beans, it can be very filling and high in fiber.

Any precautions?

  • People who are allergic to shellfish may be allergic to cuttlefish
