Heart-warming Chinese Cabbage and Potato Potage

Heart-warming Chinese Cabbage and Potato Potage

Let's warm up and relax.
This soup has a simple taste, which is easy to eat.

Ingredients: 2 ~ 3 servings

Onion
1/2 medium (100 g)
Potato
1 medium (100 g)
Chinese cabbage
1 ~ 2 leaves (100 g)
Butter
10 g
Water
400 g
Milk
100 g
Consomme soup stock cube
1 (5 ~ 6 g of granules)
Salt and pepper
to taste

Steps

1. Cut the onion and potato thinly as possible so they cook through quickly.
2. Cut the Chinese cabbage into 1 cm strips.
3. Add butter and onion into a pot, and stir-fry over medium-low heat (without burning) until it softens and wilts. It brings out the sweetness of the onion.
4. Add water, potato, Chinese cabbage, and consomme (if it's a cube, crush), cover with a lid, then simmer until the vegetables become really soft.
5. Simmer until they become so soft like this, and turn off the heat.
6. Mix with a hand mixer or in a blender until the mixture becomes smooth. When you are transferring the mixture into the blender, it's hot so be careful.
7. Pour in the milk, and heat the mixture without boiling. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste, and it's done.
8. Top with parsley or croutons if you like.

Story Behind this Recipe

I often make a potage with leftover ingredients in the fridge. I had a little bit of leftover Chinese cabbage, so I cooked it with a potato.
