Canh khoai môn - Taro soup

By Helen Le Published: July 23, 2012

  • Prep: 15 mins

  • Soak ribs in water for 15 minutes. Rinse and drain. Season with 1 tsp minced garlic, 1 tsp minced spring onion (white part only), 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/2 tsp seasoning powder. Mix well and set aside for 15 minutes. Cut taro into 1.5-inch cubes (3-4cm).
  • Heat the sauce pan on high heat, add in 1 tbsp cooking oil, then add the ribs and stir-fry until the color outside changes.
  • Add 1.5 liter water (6 cups) and bring to boil. Occasionally skim off the foam. When it boils, add taro and cook on medium low heat until the taro is soft (can easily pierce through with a chopstick)
  • Transfer to serving bowl and garnish with chopped spring onion.
