Vegetarian Kiam Chye (Salted Vegetable, Ham choy) Soup Recipe

Some people find vegetarian soup rather plain. In order to dish out a savoury and flavourful vegetarian soup, I used various ingredients to prep up the taste. I tried cooking salted vegetable soup (ham choi) by using groundnuts and turnips for natural sweetness. The taste turned out quite good!

Salted vegetable, 3 leaves, cut into bite sizes
Carrot, 1 pc, cut into cubes
Turnip (sengkuang), 1 small, removes skins and cut into four
Groundnut, ½ cup
Tomato, 1 pc, cut into four
Assam Keping (dried sour fruit) 3 pcs or more if you want it to be very sour
Ginger, 3 slices
Sugar to taste
Salt to taste
Soya sauce, 1 tablespoon
Olive oil or vegetable oil, 1 teaspoon
Water, 4 bowls

Put water in pot and bring to a boil. Add carrot, turnip, assam keping, ginger and groundnut. Boil until the peanut turned soft. Add in the rest of the ingredients and boil for a short while. Serve soup with steamed rice.
