Chinese soups are nutritious, soothing, and comforting to drink.

This is what Cantonese moms & wives are known for!

Asian cultures are generally more reserved when it comes to showing affections to our loved ones (especially family).

You wouldn’t be surprised to find many likely couldn’t recall the last time they said “I love you” face to face to their moms or dads, daughters or sons.

But we do show our affections and appreciations in other ways.

For my mom, it’s Chinese soups.

Not only because it’s healthy, soothing, & comforting, but flavorful Cantonese soups traditionally takes hours and hours to make.

Mom, thank you for your care, patience, & love for us! 🙂

Carefully open the lid and heat up the pressure cooker to bring the bone soup back to a full boil. Let the soup boil for an extra 10 – 15 minutes.

*Pro Tip 1: Due to the nature of pressure cooking, the initial soup will not taste the same as the traditional Chinese soups cooked on stovetop. So, it’s very important to boil the soup for an extra 10 – 15 mins to add body to the soup.

Add salt to taste.

*Pro Tip 2: Make sure to add in the salt slowly and keep tasting. Do not over season. For reference: We added roughly 1 ½ teaspoon of fine table salt.
