Red Vegetable Soup

What is the real name for this vegetable? I don’t know. It is labeled as red vegetable and you can get it from the wet market and FairPrice Supermarket in Singapore. I remember my mom used to boil this quick soup with a salted egg. For this vegan recipe, I added some kelp to impart some flavour to the soup as I was not using any vegetable stock.

Preparation: 10 mins, Cooking time: 10 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 220g red vegetable, stem discarded
° 6 dried kelps in knot
° 1-2 thin slices ginger
° 750ml water
° salt and pepper to taste

Method
1. Place the dried kelps, ginger and water in a pot. Bring to a boil and simmer for 8-10 minutes.
2. Add in the red vegetable and bring to a boil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
3. Ladle the soup into individual serving bowls. Serve hot.
