As Easy As ABC

Today I am cooking a dish that is commonly called ABC soup locally, but I am cooking it a different way in microwave. Maybe you can give it a try too.


200mg of red carrot
200mg of potatoes
2 pcs of shitake mushroom
A pinch of salt and white pepper for taste
40ml shitake mushroom broth
1 1/2 tbsp of cornflour

Cut red carrot and potatoes into cubes.
Cut shitake mushroom into small pieces.
Put the red carrot, potatoes and shitake mushroom into the claypot.
Pour 40ml of shitake broth into the claypot.
Add a pinch of salt and white pepper for taste.
Pop it into the microwave and cook it for 6 minutes.
Put the cornflour into a small bowl and mix it well with the balance of shitake mushroom broth (mixture)
Take the claypot out from the microwave after 6 minutes and add in the mixture.
Pop it back into the microwave for another 2 more minutes.

That's it. Now you can enjoy a great ABC dish within 8 minutes.

Interesting recipe! Sounds good. I was wondering what importance the clay pot plays in the recipe?

I use claypot because it can keep the heat and moisture in the pot and food cooked faster this way. It also makes the food taste better. You can give it a try.
